Series Record: Fresno State leads 3-0 Last Meeting: 1/30/13 - FS 60, AFA 47 in Fresno, Calif.Fresno State Game Notes
Fresno State seniors Rosie Moult and Jeanna Furst will be going for the 100th victory in their careers at Fresno State on Saturday. After leading the 'Dogs to a 80-21 (.792) record over their first three seasons - the best record in any three-year stretch in school history - the duo now seeks their fourth 20-win season.
That would also be the sixth-straight 20-win season for the Bulldog program.
Fresno State defeated Air Force 60-47 at home back on Jan. 30. Moult did not play in that game due to illness, but has since averaged 13.3 points per game and has hit nine 3-pointers in her last two outings. Her 43 made 3-pointers in Mountain West games already ranks fifth in conference history and she still has two games remaining to add to her total.
Defensively, Fresno State has held its last five opponents to just 52.8 points per game and forced an average of 19.7 turnover per game. In three of the last five games, the 'Dogs have limited the opposition to 50 points or less.
The Bulldogs have won five-straight road games and are 6-1 away from home in Mountain West play. This will be Fresno State's final road game of the regular season.
The 'Dogs host UNLV next Saturday, March 9, at home on senior day before heading to the 2013 Reese's Mountain West Tournament in Las Vegas, Nev.
► Rosie Moult and Ki-Ki Moore were both honored before Wednesday's game for reaching a couple of milestones in their careers. Moult has become Fresno State's all-time leader in career steals with 255 and Moore has become the 18th player in program history to score over 1,000 points in a Bulldog uniform.
► Rosie Moult entered the week tied for 13th in the nation with 3.0 made 3-pointers per game. She has hit nine three's in her last two games.
► This will be Fresno State's second-ever trip to Air Force and just the fourth overall meeting between the two schools.
