Basketball Set To Defend Surf `N Slam Title Tuesday vs. UTSA
Dec. 27, 2010
The San Diego State women's basketball team plays host to the San Diego Surf `N Slam Classic for the sixth straight year, starting Dec. 28, at Viejas Arena. The Aztecs will face UTSA (4-7) in the first of two games on Tuesday at 5 p.m. PT, followed by the Drexel vs. No. 7/5 Texas A&M contest at 7 p.m. The consolation (5 p.m.) and championship (7 p.m.) games will follow two days later on Thursday, Dec. 30.
San Diego State returns to action for the first time in seven days after downing Washington State, 66-57, for its first home victory of 2010-11 on Dec. 21. The Aztecs, who will play their final two non-conference contests of the season, are seeking their third consecutive Surf `N Slam title. The team pulled off one of the biggest upsets in program history, defeating No. 4 Texas to claim the 2008 crown, and then beat Auburn by 11 points (66-55) for first place last year. SDSU ended up in second place in 2006, and took third in both 2005 and 2007.
UTSA, meanwhile, is 4-7 on the campaign with a 72-55 win over Kansas State last week. The Roadrunners have a 1-0 advantage in the all-time series with the Aztecs, as the two sides met on a neutral court in Malibu back in December of 1989.
