Hip, hip, Jorge!: Gutierrez wins Pac-12 Player of the Year

Cal guard also wins top defensive honor

On Sunday, Jorge Gutierrez had just completed his worst two-game stretch of the season. A day later, he became the first player to win both Pac-12 Player of the Year and Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Year. The sting of a squandered conference title still fresh after a loss at Stanford,

Pac-12 title on the line in Cal-Stanford matchup

After the Cal men’s basketball team lost to Colorado last Sunday, the Bears’ Pac-12 title hopes seemed over — until now. First-place Washington lost to UCLA Saturday afternoon, meaning if Cal defeats Stanford on Sunday, the Bears will share the conference title with the Huskies.

Jorge Gutierrez likely lost his frontrunner status for Pac-12 Player of the Year after going scoreless Sunday in a Cal loss at Colorado.

Seven missed field goals. Zero free throw attempts. Zero points. Jorge Gutierrez’s penultimate regular-season performance was arguably his worst in over two years, an outing magnified by the importance of Cal’s loss to Colorado.

Former Cal wide receiver Alex Lagemann, aka Loggy, has a top-10 iTunes album with his band, Radical Something.

Has Loggy finally found success?

Former Cal receiver's album is No. 7 on iTunes charts. No joke.

With an entirely forgettable football career that included only two years of active play, Alex Lagemann isn’t a name most Cal fans will remember. But Loggy might be. With so much time spent languishing on the bench in 2010, Lagemann had ample opportunity to think of other matters — like

Veteran dunker and judge of this year's contest Andre Iguodala wasn't the only one unimpressed with the overhyped and gimmicky performances at this year's Dunk Contest.

Slam junk

This year's NBA Slam Dunk Contest failed to impress or inspire

The defining moment in Saturday night’s slam dunk contest was when Philadelphia’s Andre Iguodala, not only a preeminent defender but also one of the game’s most acrobatic dunkers, folded over his “10” placard to award Jeremy Evans, a rail-thin forward from southeastern Arkansas, a “0” for his effort. Evans’ dunk,

Wisconsin names 12/12/12 “Aaron Rodgers Day”

You’d think winning a Super Bowl two seasons after being named your team’s de facto QB would constitute the height of glory. Or getting your hands on that rodeo-worthy MVP belt. Or even seeing yourself on a Wheaties box and in a State Farm TV stint all in the course
