The San Diego State Aztecs will meet the UC San Diego Monday night before a sold out crowd at Viejas Arena on the Campus of San Diego State University. The San Diego State Aztecs are ranked 20th by the AP to start of the season. This is perhaps the most hyped team in SDSU history even more so than the 34-3 team two years ago. The afternoon on game day the Aztecs and Tritons take the court we still do not know the starting five for this deep San Diego State squad.
Everyone is not going to see the Aztecs new freshmen Winston Shepard, Matt Shrigley and Skylar Spencer get a lot of minutes as they did the last weekend. The Aztecs are now getting ready to batte No. 9 Syracuse this coming Friday and we should see who will be playing against Syracuse reflected in tonight’s starting roster for the Aztecs. SDSU Coach Steve Fisher has said this offseason these freshman are so good we don’t quite now who will red shirt. We will however now after the upcoming preseason game against UCSD who will be red-shirted their freshman season or not. The San Diego State Aztecs last met UCSD in the 2009 season. The Aztecs blew out the Tritons that year 77 -52.
The Tritons have some height on their team with Colin Porter (6-6), Drew Dyer (6-6), Zach McMillan (6-7) and Brandon Blanchard (6-8). The shortest player’s on the UCSD team is Matt Bailey (5-11) and James McCann (5-11).
The height will be good practice for SDSU as they struggled against North Carolina State in the NCAA tournament due to the high differential. Unlike Cal State San Marcos we do not expect that UCSD is going to run the zone to help San Diego State prepare for the game against Syracuse by running the zone against SDSU for the first half of the game.
