FULLERTON (DAILY AZTEC) - San Diego State men’s basketball appeared on its way to becoming the first school to win two Wooden Legacy championships on Sunday night in Fullerton, Calif., before senior guard Trey Kell crumpled to the court grabbing his right ankle with under seven minutes to play.
SDSU was already missing senior forward Malik Pope, who hurt his ankle early in the game and sat out the entire second half, and saw its 75-70 lead quickly evaporate against Washington State University, which went on a 23-11 run to win the game, 93-86, and claim the schools first ever Wooden Legacy Championship.
