“There will be more recognitions to come, as we have so many great former Bulldogs out there, but this particular opportunity is all about celebrating Paul George and his wonderful achievements.” — Fresno State AD Terry Tumey
“We are proud to honor Paul George for his exemplary contributions to the game of basketball, both while competing as a student-athlete at Fresno State and during his illustrious ongoing career in the NBA,” said Fresno State Athletic Director Terry Tumey.
“One of our goals as a Department is to connect our rich tradition with our promising future by honoring the legends of our past appropriately. There will be more recognitions to come, as we have so many great former Bulldogs out there, but this particular opportunity is all about celebrating Paul George and his wonderful achievements.”

George: ‘I am Humbled’

Said George: “I am humbled by the honor of having my jersey retired by Fresno State. I loved my time there and am so appreciative of the staff and the fans and everyone in the Bulldog family that has been part of my basketball journey.”
George, a native of Palmdale, has become an NBA superstar after shining for two seasons at Fresno State before being drafted No. 10 overall in the 2010 NBA Draft by the Indiana Pacers. George spent his first seven seasons (2010-17) in the NBA with the Pacers, and then two seasons with the Oklahoma City Thunder (2017-19) before becoming a member of the Los Angeles Clippers this summer.

Special Ticket Offer

Nov. 10 will be Paul George Day at the Save Mart Center. George is the second former Fresno State men’s basketball player to be honored with a jersey retirement. He joins former Bulldog coach and student-athlete Jerry Tarkanian, who had his No. 2 jersey retired on March 1, 2014.
A special 4-for-$24 ticket offer, which includes four Nov. 10 game tickets, is available online through the Bulldog Ticket Office.
The Bulldogs’ 2019-20 season schedule is at this link.
