USBWA All-District Teams

BERKELEY - California men's basketball senior guard Jorge Gutierrez has been selected to the USBWA (United States Basketball Writers Association) All-District IX Team. The fourth-year Golden Bear was named the Pac-12 Conference's Player of the Year on Monday (March 5) and became the only player in league history to also be named the Defensive Player of the Year.

Gutierrez was also a USBWA All-District IX selection last season and has been honored by the Pac-12 with two first-team all-conference nods. He has also twice been selected to the Pac-12's all-academic second team for his accomplishments in the class room.

This season, Gutierrez ranks second on the team in scoring (12.9 ppg) and is third in rebounds (5.3 rpg). He has been Cal's defensive catalyst as a leader on the defensive boards and boasts a team-high 36 steals. He became just the second player in program history to record 1,000 points, 400 assists, and 400 rebounds in his career. The other is Hall of Fame guard Kevin Johnson.

At Cal, he ranks 22nd in career points (1,189), sixth in assists (408), fifth in steals (145), and sixth in games played (126).

The Bears (23-8, 13-5 Pac-12) hold the second seed in the upcoming Pacific Life Pac-12 Tournament and will face the winner of a game between Stanford and Arizona State in the quarterfinals on Thursday, March 8, at 6 p.m. PT at Staples Center in Los Angeles.
