SAN DIEGO (AP) - Expectations have never been higher for a San Diego State basketball team than the one Steve Fisher will unveil during Friday night's Madness on the Mesa.
After reaching the NCAA tournament for the third straight season, the Aztecs return four of their five starters and welcome a highly touted recruiting class that includes three Division I transfers and three freshmen.
Fisher hasn't been a big fan of Midnight Madness and will save the serious stuff for practice on Saturday, which will be closed to the public.
But the hoops team is now the biggest thing going on Montezuma Mesa.
