San Diego State wins Mountain West Men’s Basketball Regular Season title

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – With four games to play during the 2019-20 regular season, No. 4/4 San Diego State has claimed the Mountain West Men’s Basketball regular season title and the No. 1 seed in the 2020 MW Men’s Basketball Championship.

This marks the Aztecs seventh MW regular season title and first since the 2015-16 season. SDSU has won the regular-season crown outright four times, while sharing the Conference title three times.

Since the inception of the league, San Diego State has earned the No. 1 seed five times. The last time the Aztecs entered the postseason as the No. 1 seed was during the 2016 MW championship.

SDSU, the only unbeaten team in Division I, is ranked in the national polls for the 10th consecutive week this season. After initially appearing in the No. 25 spot in the AP Poll on Dec. 9, the Aztecs climbed to No. 20, No. 15, No. 13, into the top-10 with back-to-back weekly rankings at No. 7 and now four-straight weeks at No. 4.

In addition, the latest NET (NCAA Evaluation Tool) ranks the Aztecs No. 1 in the nation. San Diego State has spent the most days at No. 1, 34 in total and 17 in a row from Dec. 22, 2019 to Jan. 7, 2020. NET relies on game results, strength of schedule, game location, scoring margin, net offensive and defensive efficiency, and the quality of wins and losses to create its rankings.

The 2020 Mountain West Men’s Basketball Championship is scheduled for March 4-7 at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas. All-session tickets are currently on sale at MW institutions athletic ticket offices and provide fans with savings versus buying multiple single-session tickets. Also included in the all-session ticket package is a coupon for a complimentary tournament program.

Additionally, Single-session tickets are available online at MWTickets.com or by visiting LaBonita Supermarkets in Las Vegas, as well as the Thomas & Mack Center box office.

San Diego State Aztecs holding firm at #4 spot in Men’s Basketball Polls

SAN DIEGO – For the fourth straight week, San Diego State men’s basketball is the fourth-ranked team in both the Associated Press Top-and USA Today Coaches Polls.

SDSU, the only unbeaten team in Division I, is ranked for the 10th consecutive week this season.  After initially appearing in the No. 25 spot in the AP Poll on Dec. 9, the Aztecs climbed to No. 20, No. 15, No. 13, into the top-10 with back-to-back weekly rankings at No. 7 and now four-straight weeks at No. 4.  The Aztecs 1,442 points equals the program’s second highest total, matching the amount garnered in the Jan. 20 poll, and five behind last week’s total of 1,447. The Aztecs’ No. 4 ranking in the AP Poll continues to be the highest in program history.

This week also marks the fourth week in a row, and sixth week in program history, the team has been No. 4 in the Coaches Poll.  In addition to this season, the team was No. 4 on Jan. 24 & Feb. 21, 2011. San Diego State’s 712 points in this week’s Coaches Poll are just three behind No. 3 Kansas (715).

Today’s poll ranking, released on Feb. 10, marks the third time that SDSU has appeared in the AP Top-25 on this date and is the highest ranking for the program on this date.

Feb. 10, 2011   No. 6 (NCAA Tournament Sweet-16 appearance w/ Kawhi Leonard)
Feb. 10, 2012   No. 13
Feb. 10, 2014   No. 5 (NCAA Tournament Sweet-16 appearance)

Overall, this marks the 76th week the program has been ranked in the AP Top-25 and all have come since the start of the 2010-11 season. Those 76 weeks are the 21st most for any school in the nation in that time frame; ahead of Maryland and Oregon (69 weeks), Indiana (62 weeks) and UCLA (44 weeks).  This week’s No. 4 ranking marks the 27th time the program has appeared in the AP Top-10. Prior to this season San Diego State has spent a total of four weeks in the top-5, which the team has matched in the last month.

The Aztecs 24-0 start is currently the longest winning streak in the nation and the longest to open a season in program history, passing the 2010-11 team that started 20-0. In addition, the 24-game win streak is also the longest in school history, eclipsing the 2013-14 team’s 20-0 mid-season streak.  Both those teams won Mountain West regular-season championships, the 2010-11 team won the tournament championship, and each reached the Sweet-16 of the NCAA Tournament.

In addition, the latest NET (NCAA Evaluation Tool), which replaced RPI this year as the primary sorting tool for evaluating teams during the Division I men’s basketball season, ranks the Aztecs No. 1 in the nation.  San Diego State has spent the most days at No. 1, 33 in total and 17 in a row from Dec. 22, 2019 to Jan. 7, 2020. NET relies on game results, strength of schedule, game location, scoring margin, net offensive and defensive efficiency, and the quality of wins and losses to create its rankings.
