Backcourt Aztecs: It’s no question the Aztecs have struggled in the past two games, including two go-to guards Chase Tapley and Jamaal Franklin. Franklin, who averages 20.8 points per game, had 13 in the Aztec loss to Wyoming on Saturday. Tapley has exhibited less-than-average numbers in the past two games also, but still is second [...]

But the Aztecs responded with [...]

He’s averaging 18.6 points and 10.6 rebounds per game, but also turning the ball over five times per game. Junior guard Xavier Thames and senior guard James Rahon have been steady and reliable. The big question is if senior guard Chase [...]
It was as if the ball did not want to go into the basket. Much like their games against Syracuse, San Diego Christian and Missouri State, the No. 25 Aztecs struggled to make outside jumpers.
The exhibition game was all but over against a lowly Division II University of California, San Diego team. The Aztecs led by 28 points and there were few things left for San Diego State fans, players and coaches to cheer for with less than five minutes left in the game.
Hoards of college basketball fans lined up outside of Viejas Arena Friday night for a chance to catch a first glimpse of the 2012-13 Aztec basketball teams.
