SAN DIEGO (AP) - The No. 8 San Diego State Aztecs ended the regular season with a nine-point win at UNLV and a thrilling rally at home against New Mexico that gave them the outright Mountain West Conference title.
Now they have to win three games in three days to claim the conference tournament title, which is why coach Steve Fisher doesn't think the Aztecs' trip to Las Vegas this week will be anticlimactic.
Says Fisher: ''Hopefully we'll be more motivated to be greedy and get two championships in the span of a week.''
Rallying from a 16-point deficit to beat New Mexico 51-48 on Saturday night gave the Aztecs the No. 1 tournament seed. They get a first-round bye and will play at noon Thursday against the winner of Wednesday night's Utah State-Colorado State game.
