The 24th ranked SDSU Men's Basketball team had lost 3 games in a row coming into Wednesday nights contest with the Wyoming Cowboys. Suddenly they were on the verge of slipping out of the Top 25 and maybe falling out of contention to receive an NCAA Tournament bid this March. But that is not why the Aztecs 67-58 overtime victory was so important tonight. No, the reason this was a big game is because I am doing a story on the team tomorrow for the Mountain Sports Network.
Laugh if you want, but the prospect of having to do a piece on a team that has just lost 4 in a row, including a must win at home, is not exciting. In fact, it's down right depressing.
Lucky for me, and the Mountain, the Aztecs dug deep and pulled out a victory when they needed it the most. Did the team play harder because I was in the building, tough to say, but if I had to guess my answered would be "of course". What else could it have been?
You're welcome Aztec Nation.
