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.

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.
