San Diego State Aztecs

It’s been a pretty solid year for the Aztecs so far. San Diego State kicked things off on an 18-5 run with losses to BYU, Grand Canyon, New Mexico, Boise State and Colorado State. It’s been a 2-2 stretch since then with losses to Nevada and Utah State around wins versus Colorado State and New Mexico.

In the Utah State game on Tuesday, the Aztecs came out of the break with a 31-26 deficit. San Diego State kept the pace from there on a 37-37 run but ended up losing 68-63 in the end. Jaedon LeDee topped the team in the defeat with 23 points and six rebounds in 33 minutes.

Fresno State Bulldogs

Over on the Fresno State side, they managed to go a spotty 9-11 over their first 20 games of the season. The Bulldogs have sine been on a 2-4 stretch with losses to UNLV, Colorado State, UNLV again and Boise State. The wins in that time were over San Jose State and Air Force otherwise.

Matched up against Boise State last weekend, the Bulldogs were down 48-33 by halftime. Fresno State was outscored 42-33 the rest of the way and limped to a blowout loss 90-66. Isaiah Pope led the way for the Bulldogs on 17 points, two assists and one steal in 30 minutes of work.


I’ll stay with San Diego State. The Aztecs need a good bounce-back effort after a loss to Utah State, though. In that one San Diego State managed to shot a reasonable 42.9 percent from the field with a 34-31 rebounding edge but hit just three of their 19 attempts from 3-point range (15.8 percent). It was the Aztecs’ lowest points total since posting 63 in a one-point win over UC Irvine on December 9.

The Aztecs didn’t have much trouble the last time these teams met up back on January 3, logging a 74-47 blowout win at home. San Diego State shot a nice 52.6 percent with 39 rebounds in that one, but also had trouble from 3-point range with 22.7 percent (5-of-22). Still, the Aztecs should be in control for the road rematch if they play to their capabilities.
