Basketball: Gutierrez could be 11th Pac-12 player with 1,000 points, 500 rebounds, 400 assists

Not even Gary Payton did this.

But with 32 more rebounds, Cal senior Jorge Gutierrez would become just the 11th player in Pac-12 Conference history to accumulate career totals of at least 1,000 points, 500 rebounds and 400 assists.

Gutierrez’s current numbers: 1,181 points, 468 rebounds, 404 assists.

There’s no guarantee Gutierrez gets the 32 rebounds he needs. The Bears have two regular-season games to play, then the Pac-12 tournament and, likely, the NCAAs. If that totals six games, for instance, he’d need to average 5.3 rebounds to get there.

Payton, the Oakland-born former Oregon State star, had spectacular college numbers, but didn’t get over the hump in all three categories: 2,172 points, 938 assists, but just 480 rebounds.
