The San Diego State Aztecs managed to beat the Colorado State Rams in their first MWC game of the season by the score of 71-61. This game was played on the road for the Aztecs and the victory showed how they are arguably the best team in the conference. Can they be stopped?
There is probably only two teams in the conference who can actually challenge San Diego State for a conference title and Colorado State is not one of them. I was thinking more along the lines of New Mexico and Boise State. I still think the Lobos are the most talented team in the conference, but the Aztecs are proving to be the best team.
San Diego State will have the chance to get a huge win against Kansas next game. That should be quite the test and should have this team more than ready for its next conference game against Boise State.
A win against the Broncos would have it at 2-0 in the conference. Not to mention, both of those wins would be pretty solid. Colorado State may look completely different this year, but they are still going to win some games in the MWC. Boise State should make the Big Dance.
The Aztecs have already beaten the likes of Creighton, Marquette and Washington. Their only loss came against Arizona, who is having an okay start to the 2013-14 college basketball season–currently ranked No. 1.
Regardless, they won their first conference game of the season and only gave up 61 points in the process.
