Andy Wolfe, a first-team All-America star in the post-World War II era and Cal’s first career 1,000-point scorer, will be honored withthe Pete Newell Career Achievement Award during the Bears’ Feb. 14 home game against UCLA.

“It is always nice to be recognized,” Wolfe said. “You get as far along as I am in my life and to be given this honor is really outstanding. It means a great deal to my family and I.”

Wolfe played for the Bears from the 1945-46 through 1947-48 seasons, totaling 1,112 points for teams that posted 75 victories and won two Pacific Coast Conference titles. The ’46 Bears were 30-6, earned the school’s first Final Four appearance, finishing fourth in the nation.

At 6-foot-1, Wolfe played guard and forward for Cal. He was a three-time all-PCC Southern Division selection.
