Cal's Kristine Anigwe records first 30-30 game in nearly two decades
California Golden Bears senior Kristine Anigwe is going out on top.
In her final regular season game, Anigwe extend her streak of double-doubles to a conference-record 30 games in Sunday’s 80-58 win over the Washington State Cougars. In the process, she also became the first women’s college basketball player to record a 30-30 game in 17 years.
Anigwe dominated with 32 points and 30 rebounds, the latter of which tied the Pac-12’s record for a single game and topped Cal’s previous record by three. Anigwe even out-rebounded Washington State by eight just by herself.
The most recent 30-30 game from a Division I player came via UMass’ Jennifer Butler on December 28, 2002. Just six players ever have bested Anigwe's 30 rebounds in a single game, including Deborah Temple, who pulled in a D-I record 40 boards in 1983.
The nation’s leading rebounder, Anigwe displayed expert touch around the rim and even dished out several impressive assists.

Just two days earlier, Anigwe tied the conference record of 29 straight double-doubles, which had belonged to the Oregon Ducks’ Jillian Alleyne from three years earlier. Anigwe holds the fourth-longest streak in all of women’s college basketball with a handful of potential games left.
The Golden Bears will face off against the Cougars again on Thursday in the first round of the Pac-12 Tournament and could play up to three more games before heading to the NCAA Tournament. At 18-11, Cal is not a shoo-in to go dancing, but with a strong conference tournament push, it could earn Anigwe a few more games to extend her conference record.
