With the win, Fresno State improved to 3-1 on the season, which marks the Bulldogs' best start since opening the 2006-07 season by winning their first seven games (7-0). The 06-07 team is the last Fresno State squad to qualify for the postseason as the 'Dogs played in the 2007 NIT Tournament.
Under Coach Terry, Fresno State is now 15-7 when playing in the state of California, including a 5-2 record away from the Save Mart Center in those games and owns a 5-1 record against Big West opponents.
Through games of Nov. 19, Mountain West teams boast the nation's best collective win percentage. MW squads are 27-3 against non-conference opponents for a .900 win percentage, ahead of the Big 12's .871 (27-4) clip. Two of the MW's three losses are to ranked opponents (Nov. 9 at No. 24 Texas and Nov. 11 vs. No. 9/9 Syracuse). The Mountain West is the only conference with all teams having winning records.
With a career-best 28 points, senior forward Kevin Foster posted his third career game with at least 20 points and surpassed his previous career-high of 24 points back in a 79-76 triple overtime loss to Nevada last season on Feb. 25, 2012.
With 17 points, junior guard Kevin Olekaibe moved into sole possession of 37th place on Fresno State's all-time scoring list at 959 points - just 41 points away from being the 29th Bulldog to reach the 1,000-point career milestone.
After missing the first three games of the year to injury, Fresno State freshman Robert Upshaw made his Bulldog debut in tonight's game with 4 points (both dunks). Upshaw, a 7-foot center out of Fresno, Calif., is the second-tallest player to suit up for the Bulldogs in program history and just the third to check in at seven feet or taller.
