Senior guard Isaiah Hill has been a consistent force on the court for the Bulldogs men’s basketball team this month, averaging 10.4 points per game.

On Jan. 21, he also led his team to victory against the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV), with a career-high 28 points.

Although it was his first game back from injury, he only rested for one minute the entire game.

He said doesn’t matter how long he plays.

“If I have to play 40 [minutes] or have to play 20 minutes, I’m going to do whatever it takes to win,” Hill said.

Hill went 7-for-12 from the field and 4-for-7 from beyond the arc, making both of those season-highs for field goals and 3-pointers made. He also contributed points from the line going 10-for-12, with the final three free-throws securing a 76-63 win over UNLV.

During his career at Fresno State, Hill has accumulated 787 points and 83 steals, most recently he was named a part of the 2022 The Basketball Classic All-Tournament team.
