San Diego State Prepares to Face Washington in NIT

The San Diego State men’s basketball team meeting with the media on Friday to talk about their second round NIT match up against the University of Washington. Monday night’s game will be 6 days since they won in the opening round against IPFW in a 79-55 rout. Plenty of time to prep for the Huskies.

"They are a team that is really athletic and they are up tempo. They got a lot of good players. A lot of talented young players too. So it’s going to be a good game," said guard Trey Kell.

Washington owns the series record 3-1. The last time they played was ugly for the Aztecs, a 49-36 defeat. Something the seniors remember all too well.

"Hopefully that doesn’t happen again. It was a really bad game for us," said Skylar Spencer.

Coach Fisher sees parallel’s between this year’s team and the 2009 Aztec’s squad that made it to the NIT semifinal game at Madison Square Garden.

"Both of us we’re on the cusp of playing in the NCAA and both team’s responded to disappointment the appropriate way," said Fisher.

And if you are wondering if the Aztecs are watching any of the March Madness.

"I don’t even know who is playing," said Fisher.
