SAN DIEGO -
Long Win Streaks On The Line As No. 7/7 #AztecMBB Travels To San José State Looking To Start League Play 6-0 For The First Time In 47 Years
Game time is set for 7 p.m. PT and the contest can be seen on the Internet only (ESPN3). The Mighty 1090 and 105.7 The Walrus will have the game on radio.
San Diego State is looking to begin league play 6-0 for the first time in the Division I era (44th season) and the first time since opening the 1966-67 CCAA campaign 7-0. The Aztecs enter Wednesday's game having won 38 straight games against teams from the state of California (2nd-longest active streak in the country by any team against any one state since 1996-97 season), 15 straight games overall (2nd-longest streak in school history, 4th-longest active streak nationally), eight straight games against Pacific time zone opponents (T-3rd-longest streak nationally), eight straight January games (T-3rd-longest streak nationally), seven straight road/neutral games (3rd-longest streak in school history; tied for 2nd-longest streak nationally) and five straight conference games (14th nationally).
On Saturday, SDSU remained perfect in MW play with a 63-52 decision over UNLV. The Aztecs never trailed in the game, holding the Rebels to season lows in points (52), field-goal percentage (30.0) and assists (5). San Diego State was led by Xavier Thames, who tallied a game-high 18 points, seven rebounds and four assists. Josh Davisrecorded his NCAA-high 11th consecutive game with double-figure rebounds as he posted his 38th career double-double with 14 points and 14 rebounds.
The Aztecs shot just 33.9 percent from the field, but claimed its fifth victory of the season when shooting 40 percent or less from the floor. SDSU owned a 49-39 advantage on the glass and 19-7 edge in second-chance points.
Following the game against San José State, the Aztecs will return to San Diego before departing for Logan, Utah, for a Saturday encounter with Utah State. The Aggies are 124-12 at home since March 2, 2006, and are 54-6 in home conference games during that stretch.
