Women's Basketball Gives Back Photo Gallery
FULLERTON, CA - With the start of the 2008-09 season just around the corner, the Cal State Fullerton women's basketball team has been busy in the classroom, in the gym, and in the community, giving back through numerous projects.
"The growth and development of this program has always been about the growth and development of the complete player," Head Coach Dr. Maryalyce Jeremiah said. "This year's Titans represent this purpose at a higher level than at any time in the history of the program. They are champions on and off the court."
Each season, individuals on the team have the opportunity to select from a list of events the coaching staff has chosen. This year, the Titans have been on hand to put on a free clinic at the opening of the Fullerton YMCA, participate in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure and they will host their third-annual basketball clinic at Dwyer Jr. High School in Huntington Beach.
In addition, on October 24th, they will participate in their third-annual "Hoops for Heart" at Commonwealth Elementary School.
"It is better to give than to receive," junior guard Jasmine Scott said. "We are very fortunate as basketball players; we have been given a lot. To be able to be role models, to give something back to our community when so many people have done things for us in our lives, it's very rewarding."
Cal State Fullerton returns nine letter winners and four starters back from last season's squad while welcoming four newcomers to the floor in 2008-09. The Titans open the regular season on Nov. 14 against Santa Clara at 7 p.m. at Titan Gym.
