Fans of college basketball here in the Central Valley got their first look at this year's Men's and Women's basketball teams albeit in a much for casual setting.

The college kids showcased their talents at the Save Mart Center on Red and White Hoops Night on campus.

This event included a Dunk Contest and a Superstar 'Dogs Shooting Challenge.

Fans got the chance to get on the court and meet their favorite players and coaches.

Both squads told Action News they're excited about the new season.

"I mean it's just great for our girls and the men to be able to get out on the floor. And just get out and calm some of those nerves and jitters out but it's also just a great time for the fans to be able to interact with the players. Getting autographs and meeting our women that represent Fresno State." Said Women's Head Coach Raegan Pebley.

"Every team that comes in here, every team that plays us is going to know that they'll be in for a fight and we're not going to lay down no matter what even if we're in our first year in the Mountain West. We just need your support. Get ready for the season. Thank you." Said Bulldogs Guard Kevin Olekaibe.
