BERKELEY - California senior guard Jorge Gutierrez guided the Golden Bears to a pair of Pac-12 victories against USC (53-49) and UCLA (85-69), making him this week's California Muscle Milk Student-Athlete of the Week.

Gutierrez helped Cal open league play with a 2-0 record for the first time since 2008-09. Gutierrez put up 13 points to go with seven rebounds and seven assists against the Trojans, but also locked down on the defensive end of the court to grab four steals. Against the Bruins, Gutierrez dropped 16 points and dished out eight assists to go with four rebounds and two steals.

He is now just two steals shy of cracking Cal's top ten all-time career steals leaders. Over the weekend, Gutierrez averaged 14.5 ppg, 7.5 apg, 5.5 rpg, and 3.0 spg while shooting 50 percent from the field (10-20 FG).
