    In a 20-point effort, Watson drilled two three-pointers within the first two minutes of the second half.

    Tears.

    Collectively, the Aztecs' postgame environment in the locker room was dominated by one thing.

    Silence.

    Silence and tears were a few of the emotions emanating from SDSU's 64-57 loss to Utah State in the Mountain West Conference tournament championship game on Saturday at the Thomas and Mack Center in Las Vegas.

    San Diego State women's basketball reached a dead end on March 12 following a 75-70 overtime loss to Wyoming in the semifinal round of the Mountain West Tournament.

    The Aztecs came in as the seventh-seed and defeated tenth-seeded Air Force in the quarterfinals to advance. The following day, SDSU upset second-seeded New Mexico.

    SDSU (14-18, 7-11 MW) had a rollercoaster of a season.

    Head coach Stacie Terry started four underclassmen.

    In the beginning of the year, Terry said she was unsure what the season was going to bring.

    Senior guard Devin Watson looks to attempt a shot over senior forward Trey Porter during the Aztecs' 65-56 victory over Nevada in the MW semifinals on March 15 at the Thomas and Mack Center in Las Vegas

    San Diego State men's basketball entered the Mountain West Tournament seeking its second straight tournament championship and subsequent NCAA Tournament berth.

    Barring its 65-56 semifinal victory over Nevada, the Scarlet and Black faced shooting issues throughout the tournament.

    These issues became the demise of the Aztecs' title hopes.

    In its quarterfinal win over UNLV on March 14, SDSU collectively shot less than 30 percent from the field but were carried by sophomore forward Jalen McDaniels' 25-point, 14-rebound performance.

    Within 30 minutes after the buzzer hit triple zero against Utah State to end San Diego State's season, Jeremy Hemsley sat down in the locker room at the Thomas and Mack Center.

    It was in Las Vegas for the Mountain West Championships where the senior guard would remove his jersey for the final time.

    A jersey that had "San Diego State" written across his chest.

    A jersey that had "Hemsley" and the number 42 on his back.

  • Daily Aztec: Aztecs look to take rubber match against Nevada in Mountain West semifinals

    San Diego State men's basketball watched confetti fall after Nevada used a 81-63 victory to clinch the 2019 Mountain West regular-season title last Saturday.

    Five days later the two teams will meet again in the state of Nevada, but this time 445 miles south at the Thomas and Mack Center in Las Vegas.

    And this time the Aztecs, presumably, would prefer the game not end in another 28-point loss but instead a repeat of the 65-57 victory on Feb. 20.

    Head coach Brian Dutcher said despite the deficit, the Aztecs were within striking distance for most of the game.

    This was no problem for SDSU, which showed: different state, same fan base.

    SDSU fans followed the Aztecs and made their mark in Sin City.

    The loyal supporters grouped together and territorialized an entire section of the arena.

  • Daily Aztec: Men's basketball head to Las Vegas for Mountain West Conference Tournament, face UNLV in quarterfinal

    San Diego State men's basketball came into last year's Mountain West Championship Tournament as the five-seed.

    SDSU had a six-game winning streak and a 19-10 regular-season record before facing Fresno State in the quarterfinal.

    This year, the Aztecs (19-12, 11-7 MW) head into the conference tournament as a four-seed with the same number of wins heading into the tournament when they face UNLV (17-13, 11-7 MW) at 2:30 p.m. Thursday at the Thomas and Mack Center in Las Vegas.

    The difference?

    SDSU has lost its last two games, including a 28-point beatdown at Nevada to finish the regular season.

    With the season on the line and four seconds left, freshman guard Sophia Ramos drove to the basket and made a shot to send the San Diego State women's basketball team to overtime on Monday night at the Thomas and Mack Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.

    The No. 7 Aztecs momentum continued with them into the extra period, where they outscored the No. 2 Lobos 11-2, resulting in a 70-61 victory and a date with No. 3 Wyoming in the Mountain West Tournament semifinals on Tuesday.

    A strong defensive effort by SDSU forced the Lobos to shoot for 30 percent from the field and 10 percent from the 3-point line.

  • Daily Aztec: Aztecs defeat Nevada, 64-61, in nailbiter on Senior Night

    The Aztecs entered the fourth quarter up by six and grew their lead to nine.

    A furious Nevada comeback saw the Wolf Pack regain the lead 59-57 with less than three minutes left. After a seesaw two minutes, the shot of the game went in. It was a three pointer by sophomore guard Naje Murray to give the Aztecs a 62-61 lead. Murray finished with 21 points, four rebounds, two assists and shot 80 percent from the field.

  • Daily Aztec: Aztecs fumble away game on senior night in 76-74 loss to Fresno State

    San Diego State men's basketball looked firmly in control against Fresno State on Wednesday night at Viejas Arena.

    The Aztecs led by six points with 1:18 to play and were all set to win a game which would lock them into the third seed in the upcoming Mountain West Conference tournament.

    Then, in the blink of an eye, things fell apart.

    Back-to-back-to-back Aztec turnovers led to seven Fresno State points, before two free throws from the out-of-towners left SDSU trailing 75-72 with 21 seconds left.

    Senior guard Devin Watson had a chance to be the hero at the end, but his heavily guarded 3-point attempt fell just short as the buzzer sounded - sending the Aztecs away with a 76-74 loss.

  • Daily Aztec: Men's basketball blows by San Jose State in 84-56 victory

    Senior guard Jeremy Hemsley drives past the defense during the Aztecs' 84-56 victory over SJSU on March 2 at Viejas Arena.

    Not a lot went wrong for San Diego State men's basketball on Saturday night against San Jose State.

    Jeremy Hemsley's nine-game streak of recording at least one block ended.

    "I think they knew," Hemsley said. "(I'm) sad to see it come to an end."

    That might have been the worst thing.

    SDSU led the entire way during an 84-56 victory over the Spartans on Saturday night at Viejas Arena.

    The victory helped keep the Aztecs (19-10, 11-5 MW) in the running for a top-3 seed in the Mountain West Conference tournament, while SJSU (4-24, 1-15 MW) remains in the conference cellar.
