SDSU needs to keep up the hustle, and keep on winning. I said it before and I will say it again, SDSU lacks respect…
San Diego State Aztecs coming off 5 wins in 11 days, edging out its two opponents last week in the late minutes of the game. SDSU’s drop was probably attributed to the 1-point win over University of San Diego Toreros, who have historically been a losing program. A missed 3-pt shot as time expired sealed the victory for the Aztecs.
Still, San Diego State sits at 7-1 with its only loss of the season coming at home to the now #1 team in the country Arizona. State has a favorable record moving forward and could see itself 11-1 by the time they take on Kansas.
Steve Fisher’s team gets a ten day rest as their next game is not until December 18th vs. Southern Utah at Viejas Arena. They will not play this entire week, which may or may not effect their overall ranking in the polls. One positive to point out is that Steve Fisher is finally getting recognition in the Coaches’ Poll. Unranked in last week’s Coaches’ Poll, SDSU now sits at #24.
Not playing a game should theoretically not hurt their ranking, but it depends on how other teams in the nation play.
When it really comes down to it, rankings mean nothing. The goal of this season is to get into the NCAA tournament. What the Aztecs need to do is just continue to win and everything else will fall into place.
