BERKELEY — Reshanda Gray scored 17 points on 8-of-12 shooting as the No. 14 Cal women’s basketball team won its home opener on Tuesday, defeating Nevada 76-54 at Haas Pavilion.

Mikayla Cowling went 3-of-4 on 3-pointers, scoring 13 points as the Bears shot nearly 50 percent from the field (30-61) and was 7-of-13 on 3-pointers.

Brittany Boyd scored 13 points with seven assists and two steals — moving to No. 10 on the Pac-12 Conference all-time steals list with 274.

Nevada’s T Moe scored 22, one shy of her career best, after recording the program’s first triple-double in the season opener (19 points, 12 boards, 11 assists).
