Golden Nuggets: A Potpourri of (Mostly Old) Articles From a Very Slow News Week

A high honor for Evan Weaver

NCAA Football: California at Washington State James Snook-USA TODAY Sports

Its been a long week for me work wise, but the one time I had a day off on a GN day, I scoured my typical news sites and didn’t find any headline worthy posts. After a whole week of waiting around, a few have showed up. However, I didn’t want to throw away some good articles about past events, even if those events have long passed. I did have to throw away some basketball ones, though. So here’s a list of some, mostly outdated, articles about Cal sports.

Football

37. Evan Weaver, LB, California

Weaver was all over the field for a California defense that limited teams to just 20.4 points a game in 2018. The Washington native recorded 158 stops (nine for a loss), 4.5 sacks, six pass breakups,and two interceptions last fall. Weaver’s interception return for a touchdown was instrumental in California’s upset of Washington.

Women’s Basketball

  • Colleen Galloway praised Kristine Anigwe prior to her record setting performance against Oregon on February 8.
  • Kristine Anigwe then set the rebounding record against Oregon State, and Asha Thomas set a Cal record for made threes. However, all these record setting performances came in losses.
