Up Close with Taja Edwards
Nov. 24, 2009
FRESNO, Calif. - Taja Edwards has developed into a player for the Fresno State women's basketball team who provides instant energy every time she steps onto the basketball floor. She had a career high 12 points against Hawai'i last year and she grabbed a career-best 13 rebounds against Cal State Northridge.
Edwards has played an important part in the Bulldogs two trips to the NCAA tournament and by the time she and fellow juniors Jaleesa Ross, Hayley Munro, Emma Andrews and Marnique Arnold are seniors they hope to be the winningest class in program history.
