Utah State takes San Diego State to the edge

LAS VEGAS (KRQE) – The top men’s seed in the Mountain West Tournament has survived. San Diego State is almost sent packing by 9 seed Utah State.

The Aztecs snagged the lead late in the game and was able to hang on for a  71-65 victory. A loss would have more than likely knocked the Aztecs out of consideration for the NCAA Tournament.

They came into the tournament on the bubble with no room for error in a conference many considered down this year. San Diego State will get the winner between the Lobos and Nevada in the Mountain West Tournament semifinals Friday.

The Lobos and Nevada are the second of four quarterfinal games scheduled for Thursday.
