The Bulldogs’ Senior Leader’s Career Has Completed
Hopkins suffered a season-ending foot injury Saturday against Wyoming
Fresno State will have to close the season without its senior guard
Fresno State guard Jaron Hopkins has suffered a season-ending foot injury, per reports.
Hopkins hurt his right foot in Saturday’s 78-68 loss to Wyoming. He was forced to leave in the first half after playing just 12 minutes. Hopkins did not return to the floor the remainder of the night.
Hopkins spent his first two collegiate seasons with Colorado before transferring to Fresno State. He will finish his career with per-game averages of 8.6 points per game, 4.2 rebounds per game, 2.2 assists per game and 1.3 steals per game.
Entering the year as the No. 12 overall player in the Mountain West Wire Top 25 player rankings, Hopkins enjoyed his strongest season as a senior. He shot a career-high 50.7% from the field, while also recording 5.7 rebounds per game, also a career-best. Hopkins was also forced to miss four games earlier in the year due to a back injury.
Fresno State has one game remaining on its regular season schedule. The Bulldogs travel to Albuquerque to take on New Mexico in Saturday’s season finale. Fresno State can wrap up a No. 3 seed in the Mountain West Tournament with a victory.
