Aztec Basketball Plays Host To Showdown With First-Place Utah Wednesday
Both sides will have lengthy win streaks on the line. The Aztecs are 11-0 at home this season and have won 13 in a row overall, tying as the 11th-longest home win streak in the nation. SDSU has also claimed seven consecutive league games in San Diego.
The Utes, meanwhile, have won 25 straight regular-season conference outings, the longest active streak in the country, including a 9-0 start in 2009. Included in Utah's streak is a six-point victory over the Aztecs in Salt Lake City earlier this year (58-52) that saw the host school double-up the visitors in the rebounding department.
San Diego State boasts the best overall winning percentage in the Mountain West at 16-5 and is 7-2 in conference action with its only losses coming on the road at Utah and at TCU. The Aztecs have already matched their regular-season win total from a year ago and their seven MWC victories tie last year's total, which is the school's most in the 10-year history of the league.
SDSU comes into Wednesday's game on a three-game win streak, including a 55-37 victory at Air Force last Saturday that gave head coach Beth Burns her 200th win on The Mesa.
The Utah contest will feature a live audio/video feed with Chris Ello, along with live stats on goaztecs.com.
