Taylor Thompson led Fresno State last week to a pair of victories, including a win over Colorado State as the Bulldogs gained a game on CSU for first place early in the conference race. Thompson averaged 18.5 points, five rebounds, had five assists and three steals on the week when she shot 68.8 percent from the field and hit 5-of-7 of her 3-point attempts. On Wednesday at Air Force, Thompson scored a game-high 18 points in just 23 minutes of action on the court in the 34-point victory. She was 5-of-7 from the field, 3-for-3 from 3-point land and a 5-for-5 from the free-throw line. Then in the victory over Colorado State, Thompson surpassed the 1,000 point total for her career, becoming the 20th Bulldog in school history to surpass 1,000 points. Thompson finished the CSU game with 19 points, had a team-high nine rebounds, four assists with no turnovers and two steals playinig in all 40 minutes of the game. She was 6-for-9 from the field against the Rams, 2-of-4 from behind the 3-point arc and 5-of-6 at the free-throw line. In addition to her hitting the scoring milestone, Thompson also went over 400 assists in her career with her four dimes vs. CSU and she now ranks fourth in school history with 403 career assists. She now needs just three more steals to become Fresno State's all-time leader in steals.
