SAN DIEGO– San Diego State’s Aztec basketball team continued their winning streak in front of a sell out crown Saturday and tied the school record.
The final score was 73-58 Aztecs over the Wolf Pack from Nevada.
“Everyone wants to play us. We are SDSU. We are the fifth in the nation and we are every teams big game,” said sophomore student Josh Taresh.
The Aztecs matched the 20 game win streak by the 2010-11 team, which won its first 20 games before losing at BYU. There are only eight games to go in the regular season and so far SDSU has only lost once.
“Getting an A on a paper is pretty good. Hanging with friends is also good. Being fifth in the country that is incredible and we’ve done it with defense that is even better,” junior Mathew Bain said.
March madness is a month away and some sports analysts are saying this is the best team San Diego state has ever put on the court.
Fans believe the Aztecs have what its takes to go all the way.
“They care about us and they do their best every single time they play,” sophomore Daniel Vaka said.
The Aztecs’ next game is in Wyoming on February 11.
