Kelly Hartig will also be honored at the game. A 6-3 post player from Highlands Ranch, Colo., Hartig played two seasons at Virginia before transferring to CSU, where she has been a mainstay on the front line, averaging 5 points and 3.7 rebounds.

Mestdagh, from Leper, Belgium, stands fourth on the school’s all-time scoring list with more than 1,600 points, trailing only current CSU Sports Hall of Famers Becky Hammon, Katie Cronin and Teresa James. She also ranks second in made 3-pointers, fourth in steals and fifth in free-throw percentage in CSU history.
