The awards keep rolling in for the Cal men’s basketball team.

Harper Kamp was named to the Pac-12 All-Academic second-team on Thursday. The senior forward and American Studies major, who averaged 11.6 points and 5.2 rebounds per game, has a 3.17 GPA.

Players must have at least a 3.0 GPA and be either a starter or major contributor on their teams to be eligible.

Senior guard Jorge Gutierrez was selected as an honorable mention to the team. The Pac-12 Player of the Year and Defensive Player of the Year made the Pac-10 All-Academic second team last season. He and sophomore guard Allen Crabbe were both picked for the NABC All-District 20 Team

Chosen by the National Association of Basketball Coaches, the West Coast team is one of 24 districts and the two Cal guards are two of 240 players to be selected. Not as prestigious as Pac-12 awards, the district teams help decide the All-American teams.

That wasn’t it for Gutierrez. The Chihuahua, Mexico native played in the Reese’s College All-Star Game on March 30 in New Orleans. Gutierrez scored eight points and grabbed three rebounds in the game, which pitted 10 star seniors from the West against 10 from the East. The East team won, 103-99.
