The Aztecs team is led by captain Chelsea Hopkins who was named the 2013 Mountain West Conference Player of The Year. This season Hopkins posted four triple-doubles, which is the most in the nation (NCAA both Women’s & Men’s) and in MW history. San Diego State head coach Beth Burns was named the 2013 Mountain West Conference Women’s Basketball Coach of The Year. The Aztecs have only lost five games this season. Those losses came against UCLA, Colorado, Oklahoma State, Washington and Fresno State. The Aztecs finished the Mountain West Conference season with one of the best records in Mountain West Conference history at 15-1.

Many Aztec fans believe that San Diego State deserves to be ranked with a record of 26-5. The prior argument against ranking San Diego State was the ranking of the teams they have lost to UCLA, Colorado, Oklahoma State and Washington were all ranked ahead of San Diego State. That argument is now invalid as Oklahoma State and Washington have dropped out of the top 25. At the beginning of the week San Diego State was receiving votes in both the in AP Top 25 poll (13 votes good enough for 31st place) and USA Today Coaches Poll (20 votes good enough for 27th place).The Aztecs deserve to be ranked and will be ranked on Monday when they win the Mountain West Conference Championship.
