OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- Sean Lampley scored 23 points, including nine in the late going as California pulled away to beat No. 22 Gonzaga 72-64 Tuesday night in the Pete Newell Challenge.

Dennis Gates added 11 points and Joe Shipp had 10 for Cal (7-2), which won for the fifth time in six games and remained unbeaten in three appearances in the 3-year-old event.

Richie Frahm scored 24 points, hitting 8-of-16 3-point attempts, to lead Gonzaga (7-3), which lost to a Pac-10 team for the first time in its last seven games. Frahm, a senior from Battle Ground, WA, tied his persaonl best and school record with the 8 3-pointers. He went 8-for-11 from 3-point range last season in a 37-point night at Memphis in the first round of the Chase NIT. He tied the school record held previously by Jarrod Davis and John Rillie, then equaled by Matt Santangelo against Santa Clara in the West Coast Conference Tournament title game last March. Davis went 8-for-14 against Portland in 1991, while Rillie went 8-for-12 against San Diego in the 1995 WCC Tournament.

Frahm, who failed to make a trey in the first half, hit his first seven second-half attempts from long range.

Axel Dench and Zach Gourde added 12 points apiece for the Bulldogs, who saw their three-game winning streak snapped. Gonzaga made just two if its last 12 shots and shot 39 percent for the game while Cal converted 46 percent of its field goals.

Gonzaga's 7-3 record matches where it stood last season after 10 games on its way to a 28-7 mark.

The Bulldogs will now get three days off for Christmas prior to leaving Christmas morning for Hawai'i and the Outrigger Hotels Rainbow Classic. Gonzaga meets Ohio University in Tuesday's opener. Wake Forest meets Oregon in the other half of Gonzaga's bracket. Monday's first-round games have Colorado meeting Villanova and the host Rainbows meeting Bradley. The tournament concludes Dec. 30 with placing games.

 

 

In the first half of Tuesday's double-header in the Pete Newell Challenge, top-ranked Stanford downed Mississippi State 76-56. The Cardinal rose to No. 1 when Cincinnati was upset last week by Xavier.
