|Career highlights and awards|
Guttero, a 6 ft 2 in (1.88 m) center from California, played for the Trojans from 1932–33 to 1934–35 and led the team in scoring every season. He guided them to three consecutive Pacific Coast Conference championships, and during his tenure USC compiled an overall record of 54–19. Guttero was named an All-American in 1934, then a consensus All-American in 1935. He also earned three all-conference selections, and in his senior season of 1934–35 he set a still-standing school record by scoring 34.6% of his team's points. USC enshrined him into their Athletics Hall of Fame in 2002.
He died on August 29, 2004 due to kidney failure.
