Alexis Gray-Lawson, the star senior on the Cal women's basketball team, is being listed as day-to-day after suffering a neck strain Saturday when she hit her head on the floor in the Pac-10 tournament at the Galen Center in Los Angeles.

Gray-Lawson flew home with a team trainer Sunday morning after undergoing CT scans on her head and neck the night before. Results of the tests were normal, and Gray-Lawson is scheduled to be evaluated daily by Cal's medical staff.

The three-time All-Pac-10 guard suffered the injury with about five minutes left in Cal's semifinal tournament loss to Stanford. Gray-Lawson drove the lane and put up a shot that was blocked, then crashed to the floor and hit her head. She was taken immediately to nearby California Hospital.

She remained in Los Angeles overnight only because there were no available late flights.

Cal is expecting to hear today about a possible postseason assignment. Most likely is an invitation to the WNIT, which probably will have the Bears host a first-round game on Wednesday.

Gray-Lawson's status for that game will be determined.
