FULLERTON, Calif. (AP) - Jessica Palmer only made it a few seconds into the moment of silence before she had to wipe away tears. A teammate beside her couldn't help it, either, and brought an arm up to her face.
As much as the Cal State Fullerton women's basketball team tried to return to normalcy Saturday, its first game since the killings of assistant coach Monica Quan and her fiancée, Keith Lawrence, was almost too much to take.
The 64-45 loss to UC Riverside came six days after the 28-year-old Quan and Lawrence, 27, were found shot inside a parked car in the parking structure of their Irvine condominium. Police suspect Christopher Dorner, a fired Los Angeles police officer who was reportedly represented in a disciplinary hearing by Quan's father, Randal, a former LAPD captain.
Additional security presence was noticeable in Titan Gym. Inside the entrance was a memorial, including Quan's picture inside of a wreath along with flowers and a guestbook for fans to write messages for the coach they called "Coach Mo."
