SAN DIEGO (AP) -- Malachi Flynn hit a 3-pointer with nine-tenths of a second left to give cold-shooting San Diego State a thrilling 59-57 victory over San Jose State for the Aztecs' first 10-0 start in nine seasons.
The Aztecs are off to their best start since they opened 20-0 behind Kawhi Leonard in 2010-11. That team finished 34-3 after reaching the Sweet 16 for the first time.
The Aztecs were in trouble after a flurry of 3-pointers by the Spartans in the final five minutes, including one by Brae Ivey for a 55-54 lead before SDSU clawed back.
