The Cal State Fullerton women's basketball team will honor Monica Quan at this afternoon's game against UC Riverside at Titan Gym on the Fullerton campus.

Quan, who was killed last weekend in Irvine along with her boyfriend, was in her second season as an assistant basketball coach with the Titans.

The Titan players will speak with reporters after the game. Fullerton athletic officials had planned to make the players available for interviews after practice Thursday, but postponed the media session after the threatening "manifesto" by Christopher Dorner - Quan's alleged killer - went public.

Today's game is the first for the Titan women's basketball team since Quan's murder.

Last night, Walnut High School's girls basketball team honored Quan with a moment of silence. Earlier, Walnut city officials announced that flags at city hall would remain at half staff until after Quan's funeral.

Quan, who grew up in Walnut, played basketball for Walnut High and is in the school's athletic Hall of Fame.

She continued her basketball career at Long Beach State before transferring to Concordia University in Irvine.

Quan graduated from Concordia with a degree in exercise and sport science in 2007, and earned a master's degree two years later.

She began her college basketball coaching career in 2009 as the lead assistant at Cal Lutheran University.
