Girls' Basketball: Reshanda Gray may have picked Cal for a different reason than you suspect...

November 10, 2010 |  8:43 pm

When Reshanda Gray visited Cal, she thought it was perfect. She immediately felt at home with the basketball team, marveled at the players' palpable chemistry and even liked the idea of being far away from her Los Angeles home. When signing day approached Wednesday, the Washington Prep star said becoming a Golden Bear was the obvious choice.

"I'm excited because that means I'm going to be semi-independent," she said. "Let's just say I'm going to have a good time; I'm going to enjoy my college experience."

But aside from those reasons, there may have been another factor that helped determine her decision.

Gray said Gushers are her favorite candy, and the Cal coaching staff made sure her sugar craving was satiated.

"Everywhere I went, there were Gushers," Gray said, incredulously. "They filled every room up with Gushers."
