The Trojans (14-6, 7-1), under first-year coach Cynthia Cooper-Dyke, beat No. 19 Cal 77-70 at Haas Pavilion on Friday. Cal got an oral commitment from John Porchivina, a 6-foot-1, 210-pound outside linebacker from Casa Grande High-Petaluma, according to Scout.com and Rivals.com. Porchivina, rated by both recruiting websites as a two-star prospect (out of five), had committed last month to Fresno State.
