|Cal coach Mike Montgomery called Jorge Gutierrez one of his favorite players ever.|
"At first, I thought I didn't belong here," Gutierrez said while sitting in a hallway at Haas Pavilion. "But now it's my house. This is my court, and you play the way I want you to play."
Few in college basketball play the way Gutierrez does. He attacks the game, enjoys playing defense, backs down from no one and is concerned only with winning.
"Everybody wants guys like Jorge," said coach Mike Montgomery, who made Gutierrez his first recruit in the spring of 2008 after watching him for 10 minutes in a pickup game. "If I could get eight Jorges in different sizes, you know you'd win because he's a tremendous competitor."
