Myli Martinez had many big moments during her five seasons as a Wildcat. But hitting a three-point buzzer-beater in January to nip the then-undefeated No. 1 team in the conference can’t be topped.

An aspiring youth counselor, Martinez made a splash after joining the Wildcats and quickly became one of the team’s most reliable scorers and players. She netted nearly 800 points, over 200 rebounds, and more than 150 assists during her tenure. Her long-distance three-point bombs have placed her in the Chico State record books—she ranks ninth in program history.

The Fairfield native has not only provided the Wildcats and their fans with dozens of highlight-worthy moments but has risen as a leader off the court.

“I know that when she leaves Chico State and goes to whatever community she decides to live in, she’s going to make that community better,” said Head Coach Brian Fogel.
