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.
