In her last regular-season game, University of California senior Kristine Anigwe scored 32 points with 30 rebounds for her 30th consecutive double-double, helping Cal beat Washington State 80-58 on Sunday.

Anigwe is the first player in Division I college women’s basketball with a 30-point, 30-rebound performance in more than 15 years. UMass’ Jennifer Butler was the most recent player to record a 30-30 game, which she did on Dec. 28, 2002.

The Cal senior tied the Pac-12 Conference’s single-game record for rebounds, collecting eight more boards than the entire Cougars team.

Already the nation’s leading rebounder, Anigwe is now the second player in Division I history to record 30 consecutive double-doubles, joining Oklahoma’s Courtney Paris.

Cal (18-11, 9-9) used a 15-2 run to break a 10-all tie, led 25-12 after the first quarter and was never challenged. Borislava Hristova led Washington State (9-20, 4-14) with 21 points.
