Bullard Gets Robbed, Season Over; Ki-KI Calls it Quits

Posted: Updated:

Bullard's season comes to an end in the first round of the CIF State Basketball tournament on what looked like a missed call. Calvin Young made a shot with 0.2 left on the clock, that would've forced overtime, but the refs said that time had expired. There was no review, and the 4th seeded Knights' season ends at the hands of 5th seeded Westchester, 60-58.

 

FRESNO, Calif. - Junior guard Ki-Ki Moore of the Fresno State women's basketball team announced Friday that this season will be her last at Fresno State, as she is ending her career.

Although she does have one season of eligibility remaining, Moore has chosen to forgo that year due to lingering injuries and constant pain. This decision was one she pondered throughout the season and was finalized on Wednesday when she told head coach Raegan Pebley. She is graduating this spring with her bachelor's degree in communications.

Moore played at Washington State as a freshman in 2009-10 and then transferred to Fresno State. After sitting out a season in accordance with NCAA transfer regulations, Moore played these last two seasons for the Bulldogs and scored 1,040 points in 62 games.

Moore will talk about her decision with the media following Saturday's regular season finale against UNLV. In the meantime, she offered the following statement:

"I feel like it is never easy leaving something so special when the team and coaches are supporting you, but that's how bad the pain was. It is the best decision for me.

"I would like to thank Fresno State for giving me a second chance when I transferred here. I want to thank my teammates for supporting and having open arms for me when I decided to come here. I want to thank the fans for all the support of the program through our ups and downs and for always being there for us. I want to thank Kelli [Eberlein] for keeping me healthy and for showing concern for everyone, not just me.

"Now, I look forward to just finishing off the conference season strong and go into the Mountain West tournament playing with the same confidence we've been playing with all season, but not look past any team and try to get our first Mountain West championship."
