San Diego State Men’s Basketball

Throughout the years, the San Diego State men’s basketball team has played some of the best mid-major teams in the nation. They have made back-to-back appearances in the NCAA Tournament, including a Sweet Sixteen in 2014. In 2010, the Aztecs were the fourth-best team in America. They finished the season with a record of 32-2 and shared the Mountain West Conference championship with Nevada. In 2011, they advanced to the Sweet Sixteen.

The Aztecs play at home in Viejas Arena. They are members of the Mountain West Conference, which includes Nevada, Boise State, and Utah State. San Diego State also plays a number of top-tier schools in non-conference play.

In the preseason Associated Press Top 25, the Aztecs checked in as the 19th-ranked team. They are returning multiple starters from last season. In addition, they have new playmakers in the mix. They also have a strong defense. As a result, the team is coming into this season with a lot of expectations.

Senior guard Trey Pulliam led the team in assists with 3.4 per game. His 22.9 percent assist rate led the team. The team was 11th in adjusted offense nationally last season.

Senior guard Jordan McDaniel is also coming off a disappointing season. He averaged 17.3 points last year, but has only scored 38 percent of his points in the first six games. He’s expected to improve his field-goal percentage.

Former Buckeye Jaedon LeDee has been impressive in his first year with the Aztecs. He’s a multi-time transfer from Arkansas, and his first game looked fluid. He’s also hitting multiple three-pointers during exhibition games.
