"And the crowd went wild."
That well-worn phrase came to life at Viejas Arena on the San Diego State University campus last weekend when the men's basketball team snatched another Mountain West Conference Championship from the very confident and very tall New Mexico Lobos.
Here are some of the highlights:
- SDSU's Steve Fisher was named the Mountain West coach of the year on Monday, with Aztecs forward Xavier Thames earning player of the year honors.
- Now, the Aztecs go into Mountain West Conference tournament play in Las Vegas this weekend as No. 1 seed and coach Fisher is eyeing a No. 4 seed in the NCAA Tournament.
