San Diego State Aztecs

The San Diego State Aztecs did all they could in the regular season a year ago as they went 16-2 in the Mountain West but the Aztecs failed when it counted most in the conference tournament. Even though the team won 28 games they were left out of the NCAA Tournament and had to settle for the NIT.

If the Aztecs are to have success in 2016-2017 they will have to replace Winston Shepard and Skylar Spencer. The newcomers for San Diego State could be good enough to replace Shepard and Spencer as the Aztecs brought in Montaque Gill-Caesar, a transfer from Missouri and freshman Jalen McDaniels who should see playing time right away. San Diego State also brought in Washington State transfer Valentine Izundu, Indiana transfer Max Hoetzel and redshirt freshman Nolan Narains.

San Diego State does return three starters in Jeremy Hemsley, Trey Kell and Zylan Cheatham.

2016-2017 San Diego State Aztecs Betting

The Aztecs should be really good again this season especially if they get improvement from Hemsley who was the Mountain West Conference Freshman of the Year. The team should also get a better year out of Cheatham who broke his foot as a freshman.

San Diego State also brings back Dakarai Allen and Malik Pope so this year’s team should be even deeper than last year’s squad.

San Diego State Aztecs Picks

The Aztecs have the potential to be even better than they were a year ago under head coach Steve Fisher. The 2016-2017 team looks to be much deeper than last year’s squad.  The Aztecs did schedule some good out of conference matchups as they hope to improve their NCAA Tourney resume as they will play Gonzaga, California and Arizona State.

Look for the Aztecs to win at least 25 games this season and do enough whether it is in the regular season or during the conference tournament to make it to the NCAA Tournament this season.
