No. 22 San Diego State prepares to open league play

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (AP) - No. 22 San Diego State will quickly have an idea where it stands in the Mountain West Conference.

Last season's defending co-regular season and MWC tournament champions, the Aztecs (14-2) open conference play at home Saturday against No. 12 UNLV. On Wednesday, San Diego State travels to Albuquerque, N.M., to face New Mexico.

The Runnin' Rebels (16-2) and Lobos (14-2) were the only programs picked to finish ahead of the Aztecs, who lost four starters and one key reserve off a team whose school-record 34 wins included SDSU's first two NCAA tournament victories.

SDSU coach Steve Fisher knows his team will immediately face its biggest challenges in conference play.
