SAN DIEGO (Daily Aztec) - San Diego State men’s basketball rained down buckets on Tuesday night, defeating visiting San Jose State University, 85-49, as rain fell outside of Viejas Arena.
The Aztecs earned redemption after losing on the road to the Spartans last season, something which gave this years team a bit of extra motivation.
“We just wanted to get one this year. Just wanted to get this W,” junior forward Devin Watson said. “We lost to them last year at their place. We knew we had momentum here.”
The win was the third straight for the Aztecs, who improve to 11-4 overall, 3-1 in conference and 7-1 at home.
The loss drops SJSU to 3-13 on the season, and the team remains winless in Mountain West Conference play at 0-5.
The game was close for much of the first half, and SDSU carried a 32-23 lead into intermission.
The Aztecs came out of the break on a 16-2 run, however, to put the game out of reach for the visiting Spartans.
