The 2015-16 San Diego State Aztecs return three starters and will enter their 2015-16 campaign fresh off a back-to-back Mountain West regular-season championship and their sixth straight NCAA tournament berth. SDSU is one of eight schools nationally to have reached the NCAAs six years in a row and one of nine programs in America to reach the Round of 32 three straight seasons. Overall, San Diego State finished 2014-15 with a 27-9 record (14-4 Mountain West), its 10th consecutive 20-win campaign and seventh straight with at least 23 victories.
The 2015-16 University of San Diego men’s basketball team begins a new era with head coach Lamont Smith. A 1998 USD alum and former Torero basketball player, Smith has two returners and seven letterwinners back from last year’s 15-16 ball club. He will look to senior center Jito Kok and senior wing Duda Sanadze to provide both leadership and experience for a youthful squad that has ten underclassmen. Besides the return of junior center Brandon Perry and junior forward Brett Bailey, Smith is also excited with the three scholarship freshmen his staff has brought in.
