Bay Area Athlete Of The Week : Jorge Gutierrez

Posted on March 2, 2011 by


This week, 756sports is giving its Bay Area Athlete of the Week honors
to Cal’s junior guard Jorge Gutierrez. Guti is originally from
Chihuahua, Mexico and was coach Mike Montgomery’s first signed recruit
back in 2008. His long hair, don’t care attitude has led the Bears
this season as he is averaging 14.6 ppg to go along with 4.5 assists.
Over the last 3 games (dating back to Feb. 20th), Cal is 3-0,
defeating UCLA 76-72, Oregon 81-71, and Oregon St 87-76. This late
season push from Cal has been led by Jorge Gutierrez. In the OT win
against UCLA, Guti had 34 points and 6 assists. He followed it up with
23 and 5, and then 14 and 9 during Cal’s trip up to Oregon. We hope
his play continues and that Cal can pull off some upsets in the Pac-10
Tourney. Congratulations to Jorge Gutierrez for his success as he
receives the honors from 756sports for Bay Area Athlete of the Week.
