WALNUT CREEK, Calif. - CALIFORNIA senior forward Davis Paul was named Pac-10 Men's Soccer Player of the Week for the week of Oct. 19-25, Commissioner Larry Scott announced today.

The Upland, Calif., native scored the game winner in the Golden Bears' 1-0 overtime victory over then-No. 11 UCLA on Sunday. Paul struck the golden goal in the 99th minute to give Cal sole possession of the Pac-10 lead over the Bruins, the previous Conference leader. The goal was Paul's team-leading and career-high sixth goal of the season. He also collected his career-high eighth assist of the season on Cal's goal in a 1-1 double-overtime tie with San Diego State on Friday. Paul paces the team with a career-best 20 points and three game-winning goals.

This is Paul's second career weekly honor, second of the season and Cal's 18th all-time Pac-10 Player of the Week.

After going 1-0-1 over the weekend, No. 10 Cal improved to 9-2-3 overall and 5-1-1 in the Conference. The Bears host Oregon State and Washington this week. Cal faces the Beavers on Friday and the Huskies on Sunday.

Also Nominated: Miles Byass, SDSU; Evan Raynr, UCLA
