Carrega Named To All-MPSF First Team

BERKELEY - Sophomore driver Carla Carrega, who ranks third in the MPSF in scoring at 1.81 goals per game, was named to the All-MPSF First Team, the conference announced Tuesday.

Senior driver Pippa Saunders and junior center Emily Loughlin earned second team honors while freshman Sarah Siepker was picked to the All-Newcomer Team.

Carrega was asked to shoulder more of the scoring burden this season with the temporary departure of Olympians Dora Antal, Anna Illes and Roser Tarrago, and she certainly delivered. Carrega ranks second in total goals with 56 and scored in every game this season except six. She scored five goals in a victory over No. 10 UC Irvine and four in a win over No. 21 Long Beach State.

No. 13 Cal Hosts NCAA First, Second Rounds

BERKELEY - Riding a late-season surge into the postseason, California earned the 13th seed and the right to host first- and second-round matches on Tuesday, when the NCAA announced the 64-team field for its national team tournament. The Golden Bears - ranked 12th in the latest Oracle/ITA poll - will play Army West Point at 12 p.m. while Mississippi takes on Denver at 9 a.m. on May 14 in the NCAA first round at the Hellman Tennis Complex. The two winners will play in the NCAA second round on May 15 at 1 p.m. for the right to advance to Tulsa, Oklahoma, for the rest of the NCAA Championship.

Cal's Ivan Rabb explains his decision to return to school

Ivan Rabb was gone.

That was his mindset entering the season as the highly touted recruit who made it cool again to stay in the Bay Area and go to Cal. Nothing changed after Rabb's freshman season ended with a disappointing loss to Hawaii in the first round of the NCAA tournament. He was headed for the NBA draft.

Then came the validation that made his decision even easier.

Cal coach Cuonzo Martin relayed the feedback he received from NBA personnel.

"Six to 14," Rabb said.

Multiple NBA executives told ESPN that the 6-foot-10 Rabb, with his combination of size, skill and athleticism, was unlikely to fall past the 10th pick.

"Yeah, I heard that also," Rabb admitted.

Trevor Davis Impresses Packers With More Than Just Speed

The only skill-position player Thompson picked was one of the fastest in the draft. Davis' 40 time of 4.42 seconds was bettered by only two receivers at the combine. One of them, Will Fuller, was a first-round pick. Wolf said the Packers actually timed Davis in the mid-4.3 range.

Wolf said Davis' speed was one of the main attractions, but something else stood out when the Packers watched him work out.

"His pro day was unbelievably good with the ball skills," Wolf said. "His tracking ability down the field, effortless catching, very smooth."
