USA, Germany game "almost like a final" for Alex Morgan

Montreal (AFP) - US striker Alex Morgan described Tuesday's semi-final clash against Germany at the Women's World Cup as "almost like a final."

"It's the number one and the number two team (in the world). It's almost like a final in itself," said 25-year-old Morgan.

"Germany have had a great run in this tournament, we've done pretty good as well and have been continuing to get better and better.

"It's going to be a great game for the fans. We've been watching Germany this tournament a lot knowing that we could well meet them in the semi-final and the day has come, tomorrow, and we'll be ready."

Missy Franklin

Capping her Cal career with perhaps her greatest honor as a Golden Bear, Missy Franklin received the 2015 Honda Cup as the top female collegiate athlete in the country during a ceremony at the Galen Center Monday night.

Franklin is the second Golden Bear to earn the Honda Cup, joining fellow swimmer and multi-time Olympic medalist Mary T. Meagher, who was honored with the award in 1987.

"I can't even put it into words," Franklin said after she was presented the Cup. "I honestly did not expect this listening to these other women's stories and everything they have done. To be here and to receive such a prestigious honor, I'm so incredibly thankful. I couldn't have dreamt of anything more."
