The Fresno State Bulldogs basketball teams held their annual Red & White Hoops Night Tuesday to give a glimpse of the upcoming season. Check inside to see the results of the scrimmage, 3-point competition, and dunk competition…

The Fresno State men’s basketball team comes into the season with many new faces and a lot of unknowns. For the first time, the public got a chance to see new head coach Rodney Terry, and the many new faces on the team, on the basketball court.

The team started with a 10-minute scrimmage. Sophomore guard Kevin Olekaibe led all scorers with nine points. The White team held a 23-20 advantage, until Steven Shepp made a three-pointer in the final seconds, ending the scrimmage in a 23-23 tie.

The team then held the 3-point competition. The competition featured Olekaibe, Allen Huddleston, Garrett Johnson, and defending champion Jonathan Wills. Garrett Johnson won the competition with 17 out of the possible 30 points.

The event concluded with dunk competition, featuring a judging panel including former Bulldogs Paul George and Jaleesa Ross. The participants were Olekaibe, Tyler Johnson, Daquan Brown, Jerry Brown, and Grant Hefeng.

Hefeng’s dunk in the final round stole the show, as he turned his back to the hoop, bounced the ball between his legs and off the backboard, and turned around to two-hand catch and dunk it. Hefeng earned a perfect score of 50 to win the competition.
