Volume 7, Issue 12, February 10, 2011

Special to Seattle Sportsnet

Written by dedicated Dawg Pack members

The game:

– California Golden Bears (13-10) @ Washington Huskies (15-7).

-Alaska Airlines Arena at Hec Edmundson Pavilion, Seattle, Wash.

-Thursday, February 10, 2011 6:00 pm PST.

*Editor’s note: You know what they say about Golden Bears. They take golden showers.

The team:

-University of California, Berkeley, Calif.

-Cal is coming off a triple-overtime loss to Arizona.

-Prior to their loss to the Wildcats, Cal had strung together a four-game winning streak.

The players:

#0 G (Jr.) Nigel Carter

-Refuses to watch hockey. He says he’s “just bored with it.”

-His not-so-secret crush is Lauren London.

-Thinks the smartest guy on the team is Brandon Smith.

*Editor’s note: Who the f is Lauren London?

#2 G (Jr.) Jorge Gutierrez

-Hails from Chihuahua, Mexico.

-His favorite TV show is Jersey Shore.

-Ask him if he’s ever switched the syllables in his first name…

-His favorite vacation was camping in the mountains of Chihuahua when it snowed and forced his family to sleep in a classroom.

-Don’t hate on him too much. When asked which Pac-10 school has the best student section, he said, “Easily Washington.” When asked who had the worst, “Probably Stanford.”

*Editor’s note: The switching syllables thing is clever…

#10 C (Sr.) Markhuri Sanders-Frison

-Wanted to be a doctor when he grew up.

-Markhuri is studying Swahili.

-Check out this pic of MSF and his homeboy Gutiérrez…

*Editor’s note: I like how the part about being a doctor is in the past tense. That doctor ship has sailed, dude. Peace.

#12 G (So.) Brandon ‘Smitty’ Smith

-Found himself at the Stockton Asparagus Festival last April.

-Appears to be the “lone wolf” of Cal Basketball and is not even friends with half of the other players on Facebook.

-Is the son of a preacher man! (I feel a song coming on…)

#13 G (So.) Justin Cobbs

-Justin is a transfer from Minnesota.

-Apparently, he’s a good friend of Arizona’s Derrick Williams. And the friend of our enemy is our enemy.

His profile picture. We think it’s his best look.

#15 F (So.) Bak Bak

-From Sudan, but raised in Nairobi, Kenya.

-A 6’10” sophomore who had never lifted a weight before coming to Cal.

-His name is “Bak Bak”… that should be enough.

*Editor’s note: Back when Seattle Sportsnet had its own Facebook profile, Bak Bak was one of our many friends. There was never anyone who was on Facebook Chat as much as this man. He is desperate — DESPERATE — for someone to chat with. Please talk to him. For everyone’s sake.

#21 G (Fr.) Jeff Powers

-Transferred to Cal from Denver halfway through last season.

-After he graduates, he wants to start his own business. Hopefully, it does not involve teaching kids how to play basketball.

-Here is a picture of Jeff dressed up as a Pirate-Nun:

#22 F (Jr.) Harper Kamp

-Along with Jeff Powers, Harper is an American Studies major.

-A Facebook group entitled Harper Kamp Can’t Dunk exists. You should become a fan.

-Harper is very intellectual; his interests include playing chess.

-Harper was Top-10 in his age group at chess as a kid. Bobby Fischer?

#23 G (Fr.) Allen Crabbe

-This is one ugly dude; he is definitely a member of the All-Pac-10 Ugly Team. Make sure to ask him if he gets HBO with those satellite dish ears he has.

-Mickey Mouse jokes never get old either.

*Editor’s note: Lorenzo Mata likes this.

#25 F (Fr.) Richard ‘Dick’ Solomon

-Dick has a girlfriend, but he’s trying to keep her name a secret.

-Dick was high school teammates with Allen Crabbe and they followed each other to Cal.  Apparently, they like each other a lot.

#31 G (Fr.) Emerson Murray

-When asked what his favorite sport to play as a kid other than basketball was, Emerson responded, “I’ve never played ice hockey in my life.”

-His brother Leo was the top Canadian long-jumper.

#33 G (Fr.) Alex Rossi

-A-Ross recently underwent hernia surgery to treat a groin injury. Ouch!

-Alex will return next season as a redshirt freshman.

#34 F (So.) Robert Thurman

-Thinks he has a shot at making the NBA. He’s currently averaging 2.2 minutes per game.

-Robert is an avid beat-boxer.

-He says the best concert he ever went to was The All-American Rejects.
