FRESNO, Calif. - Head coach Raegan Pebley and the Fresno State women's basketball team are looking for male basketball players to practice with the team on a regular basis.

"We utilize the male practice squad to replicate what we will see offensively and defensively from our opponents, as we prepare for games," Pebley said. "We need these guys to be competitive, skilled and have a great understanding of what it means to be a Bulldog. If you have a love of basketball and respect being a part of a team, then this is a great experience."

The practice team offers the Bulldogs a chance to practice against someone other than themselves, which is a valuable component of preparation for the 2013-14 season. Players will be expected to be competitive, knowledgeable and able to take direction from coaches. They will also be given Fresno State Nike gear.

All players must meet NCAA qualifications. It is preferable that athletes have high school basketball experience.

Fresno State's scheduled practice time for the 2013 fall semester is from 8-11 a.m.

If you are interested in helping the Bulldog women's basketball team improve, please contact assistant coach Hanna Howard at 559-389-1921 or at hhoward@csufresno.edu.

"Catch the Wave" - ESPN2 790 AM is the home of the Fresno State women's basketball team.
