Men's Basketball in AP Poll for 18th Straight Week
Dec. 10, 2012
SAN DIEGO - The San Diego State men's basketball team remained in both college basketball top-25 polls, which were released earlier today. The Aztecs, who went 2-0 last week, dropped one spot in the Associated Press poll to No. 18 and stayed at their No. 15 position in the USA Today Coaches' poll.
SDSU finds itself in the AP Top 25 for the 18th consecutive week, which is the 11th-longest streak nationally and one week shy of the program record established in 2010-11. The Aztecs earned 491 points this week up from 410 seven days ago. San Diego State's point total is its most since Feb. 13, 2012, when they earned 688.
In the Coaches' poll, the Aztecs held steady at No. 15 and picked up 22 additional points to bring their Dec. 10 total to 292, their most since Feb. 6, 2012 (332). San Diego State has been ranked in this poll 17 of the last 18 weeks and is the highest-ranked Mountain West team.
SDSU, winners of seven straight games, returns to action on Saturday when it plays host to cross-town foe, USD. The City Championship game is set for a 7 p.m. PT start and will air live on 4SD.
