“Cal senior point guard Justin Cobbs underwent successful surgery to repair a broken foot he sustained in a San Francisco summer pro-am game nine days earlier, the school announced.
Cobbs had a screw inserted into his foot to stabilize a fracture in his fifth metatarsal bone.
His recovery timetable is six to eight weeks, according to Cal basketball coach Mike Montgomery. The Bears begin practice Sept. 27, but do not play their regular-season opener until Nov. 8 against Coppin State.
A second-team all-Pac-12 selection last season, Cobbs averaged 15.1 points and 4.8 assists. He is the league’s career active assist leader.”
“July underlines the importance of the recruiting coordinator, as he’s the assistant who addresses the task of determining where the program’s recruiting targets will be and which coach (or coaches) need to be present.”
"Kamp was a natural leader — smart, vocal, selfless, willing to tell his teammates what he needed from them. Gutierrez, at first anyway, was far from that. Because he didn’t speak much English immediately, he was far quieter, less likely to say something to his teammates. Gradually, that changed, to the point where Gutierrez complemented Kamp, giving Montgomery two excellent senior leaders. There is no clear replacement for either of them. Cobbs is the most obvious candidate, as the starting point guard and one of the team’s best players. But he’s still becoming the player Montgomery wants, and not yet a guy who can be Monty’s alter-ego on the floor."
