Women’s basketball: Gray perfect in Russia

Cal junior forward Reshanda Gray shot 4 for 4 for eight points in 10 minutes, helping the U.S. to a 120-32 rout of Mali in its opening contest of the World University Games at Kazan, Russia.

Presumably, the event gets a bit more challenging for the U.S. squad, which faces the Czech Republic on Tuesday.

The U.S. shot 66 percent from the field and had 34 assists. Mali converted 19 percent.

The Kings gather for a mini-camp July 9-12 in Vegas, and open play the next day against the Dallas Mavericks.

Gutierrez played last season in Mexico and also with Canton in the NBDL. He played for the Denver Nuggets during the 2012 summer league.

Basketball: Wiltjer may stay at Ky after all

Kyle Wiltjer may be having second thoughts about leaving Kentucky.

According to an interview in the Portland Tribune, Wiltjer’s father says nothing has been decided.

“Kyle is still a Kentucky Wildcat,” Greg Wiltjer told the news paper. “He loves being a Kentucky Wildcat. He’s not 100 percent committed to transferring.”

Wiltjer said last week in an open letter to Kentucky fans that he was transferring. Greg Wiltjer said his son won’t make a decision until after playing with the Canadian team at the World University Games.

Another possibility is that Wiltjer could stay at Kentucky and redshirt next season.

“The biggest time in Kyle’s career lies in the 14 to 16 months ahead,” Greg Wiltjer said. “I’d 100 percent like him to devote the next year to working on his body, but it’s his decision.”

Wiltjer was recruited heavily by Cal out of high school three years ago, but speculation was that he might transfer to Gonzaga. Now it’s anyone’s guess what might happen.

Golf: Top-seeded Bears climb to 2nd at NCAAs

Top-seeded Cal moved from fifth place to second after Day 2 of stroke play at the NCAA championships at the Capital City Club in suburban Atlanta.

The Bears (277-272-549) sit at 11-under par entering Thursday’s final 18 holes of stroke play. Cal trails Georgia Tech by one stroke.

The top eight teams after Thursday’s round qualify for the quarterfinals of match play, beginning Friday. Cal has an 11-stroke margin over the current ninth-place team, Central Florida.

Three Cal players broke par Wednesday, led by Max Homa (70-65-135), whose five-under 65 tied for the best round by a Cal golfer at an NCAA tournament. Homa and Brandon Hagy (66-69-135) are tied for fourth place.

Joel Stalter (69-68-137) is at three under and tied for 16th place.

Top-ranked Michael Kim (72-70-142) is tied for 58th place and Michael Weaver (74-71-145) is tied for 97th place.

“When I woke up this morning if you would have told me we were going to shoot somewhere around seven, eight or nine-under par I would have said that’s the best thing going,” Cal coach Steve Desimone said. “When we were way up after 13 holes it was party time, but now it’s root canal.

“There’s a lot of golf left with a lot of great teams right behind us. We put ourselves in a real good position but this thing is not a done deal.”
