stumbled across this story from back in 2006

Victoria, not Victorious

At last Saturday's Cal men's hoops season finale versus USC, Bears boosters pulled a prank that straddles the fuzzy gray line between "Crap-Yer-Pants Hilarious" and "Inexcusably Cruel."

When USC guard Gabe Pruitt took his first trip to the free throw line early in the game, the Cal student section hollered in unison: "VIC-TOR-IA, VIC-TOR-IA," and then yelled out a telephone number. Pruitt glanced back at the crowd in horror and bewilderment before clanking his free throws.

It turns out that a couple of mischievous little bastards from the Cal student section had been IM'ing with Pruitt all week under the identity of "Victoria," a fictional UCLA hottie, and Pruitt was eagerly anticipating a date with this nubile co-ed back in Westwood after the game. In preparation for the date, Pruitt had handed over his digits, which the Cal student section recited back to
him in unison.

Pruitt, a 79% free throw shooter this season, missed both shots after the "VIC-TOR-IA" chants began, and hit only three out of 13 shots the whole game. Cal beat USC by 11 for the season sweep, in part due to the Cal fans' devious
psy-ops.

definitely not anecdotal the guy who I sit (stand) with front-row at every Cal game was the guy who masterminded this--the anticipation of letting loose this hilarious prank was bubbling up before the game we were so giddy, even the security guards were excited. After Pruitt finally made a shot well into the game, he ran by us and yelled,
"Bitches!" to which I promptly replied back, "Victoria won’t like that language!" We were yelling stuff all game—“IM me Pruitt!” “Send me a picture Gabe!” etc. Fortunately, he realized he got punked and took it rather well and was cracking a smile practically the whole game.

"Catfishing" is never funny. Just ask Manti Teo.

SALT LAKE CITY - Utah men's basketball head coach Larry Krystkowiak has announced the addition of Chris Reyes for the 2014-15 season.

"We are extremely excited to welcome Chris Reyes and his family to our Utah basketball program," Krystkowiak said. "Chris' hard work and passion for the game caught our eye early on. He has an element of toughness and athleticism that is needed with this team. He rebounds the ball relentlessly on both end of the floor and also bring tremendous versatility to our roster. Most importantly, Chris is a great person, and has high character with a phenomenal family upbringing."

Reyes, a 6-7 forward, will have three years of eligibility remaining upon arriving in Salt Lake City. He began his college career at St. Mary's and redshirted during his freshman year. Reyes then transferred to Citrus College, a junior college located in the Los Angeles suburb of Glendora.

While attending Citrus, Reyes averaged 18 points and 12 rebounds per game. He was named the Western State Conference South MVP and was also named a First Team All-State selection. Described as "an immediate impact guy" by college basketball analysts, Reyes will give Utah added depth and versatility. Reyes selected the Utes over Arizona State, Utah State, and Boise State.

Of course Corbin will figure out a way to screw it up.
