Former Louisville Cardinal standout guard Becky Burke was
brought in as the new Director of Basketball Operations for the Cal
State Fullerton women's basketball program on August 7, 2013.
"Anytime you have a chance to add someone with Final Four
experience to your program it's a good thing," said Head Coach
Daron Park. "When you combine that experience with amazing work
ethic, personal skills, and outstanding energy it's just a no
brainer. Becky compliments this staff perfectly. She was an
outstanding player at Louisville and will no doubt have a positive
impact here at Cal State Fullerton."
Burke joins the Titans' support staff after spending four
seasons with Cardinals as a player. While at Louisville she was a
part of three NCAA Tournament teams, including helping to lead the
Cardinals to the NCAA championship game during the 2009 season, and
again to the Sweet 16 during the 2010 campaign.
Burke led the Cardinals in scoring in both her sophomore and
senior seasons, putting up 13.8 and 11.9 points per game
respectively. During her senior year, (2011-12) Burke led the team
in three-point field goals made (81) and three-point field goal
percentage (38 percent). She also scored a career-high 28 points
vs. Syracuse, while tying the school record for three-pointers made
in a game with eight in that contest.
Burke ended her Louisville career as a member of the school's
1,000 point club and became just the second Cardinal ever to
participate in the State Farm College Three-Point Championship her
senior year, as she placed second.
Before coming to Cal State Fullerton Burke spent a year working
for Homefit Personal Training in Louisville, Ky.
The Clarks Summit, Pa. native earned her undergraduate degree in
sports administration from the University of Louisville and is
