Pac-12 Basketball Awards: Jorge Gutierrez Of Cal Is Your Player Of The Year

Jorge Gutierrez of the California Golden Bears does not score the most points, grab the most rebounds, or dish out the most assists. He doesn't necessarily get the most steals or even make the biggest plays. But he does all of those things fairly well.

His value lies beyond the statsheet, for his overall team performance and ability to lift his teammates to a higher plane. It's clear that without Jorge, the Golden Bears wouldn't have contended for a Pac-12 championship in the first place. The Pac-12 honored Cal with the double whammy--the Pac-12 Player of the Year honors, and Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Year honors.

Other honors for Cal after the jump.

Allen Crabbe joined Gutierrez on the All Pac-12 First Team and Harper Kamp made the Second Team, with Justin Cobbs getting honorable mention. Gutierrez made the All Pac-12 Defensive Team, and David Kravish managed to get on the All Pac-12 Freshman Team.

Josh Owens of Stanford made the All Pac-12 Second Team, and Chasson Randle made the All Pac-12 Freshman team.
