(AP) -- KJ Feagin scored 18 points and No. 4 San Diego State routed undermanned New Mexico 85-57 on Wednesday night in Albuquerque to remain the lone unbeaten team in the country.

The Aztecs (22-0, 11-0 Mountain West) got off to a 17-0 lead, holding New Mexico (16-7, 5-5) scoreless for the first 4:44 before Corey Manigault, who finished with 12 points, hit a turnaround jumper from the paint.

San Diego State made seven of its first nine shots, including three 3-pointers, to blow the game open early.

The Aztecs’ next game will be a 7 p.m. home contest on Feb. 1 against Utah State. During that game, the school will retire the number of former star Kawhi Leonard.

Leonard played at SDSU from 2009-2011 before declaring from the NBA Draft following his sophomore season.
