SDSU Beats UNLV in OT: Box Score of the Day

    
February 4th, 2009

CHN now features a live scoreboard, stats, standings, etc.. here. Occasionally, we'll be featuring a box score of the day, with some commentary on why the box score is interesting. It might be involve a huge upset, a big personal effort, some odd statistical occurrences, or other intriguing tidbit.

 

Box Score of the Day:

Today's pick is.. SDSU's Overtime Win over UNLV.

 

The MWC had a very successful non-conference season, which has led to high computer rankings, and the assumption that the league will get at least two bids. However, the main teams you hear about receiving those bids are UNLV, BYU, and even Utah. However, after knocking of UNLV in Thomas & Mack last night, it is San Diego State that leads the conference with a 6-2 record. The Aztecs, 16-5 overall, were the 48th ranked team in CHN's preseason preview and are hovering around that number in the RPI right now. This was however, their first true "big" win away from home, and a very important one if SDSU should be fighting with UNLV for the final Tourney spot.

 

For UNLV, it simply came down to not hitting shots. Most of the stats were relatively even, with UNLV getting a couple extra possessions due to better offensive rebounding and forced turnovers, but they couldn't buy a bucket. The Rebels leading scorers, Wink Adams & Tre'Von Willis combined for just 5-23 shooting. Ouch. Adams had finally hit a groove the past few weeks after a sluggish start to the season, so this bad game was unexpected.

 

For SDSU, the star of the game was forward Kyle Spain, who led the team with 17 points, 8 coming in OT. Besides the points, he also added 5 boards, 5 steals, and 4 assists.
