Head coach Steve Fisher of the San Diego State Aztecs speaks to his team during their game against the Northern Colorado Bears in the second round of the 2011 NCAA men's basketball tournament at McKale Center on March 17, 2011 in Tucson, Arizona.

San Diego State head coach Steve Fisher engineered the greatest season of basketball our town has ever seen. After a 34-3 season that included the program's first NCAA Tournament wins, Fisher was awarded the Adolph Rupp Cup.

Talk about a no-brainer. The award recognizes excellence in coaching, as decided by a panel of sportswriters, coaches and athletic directors. Past winners include national champions Roy Williams and Rick Pitino, and Final 4 fixture John Calipari.

It's a nice and richly deserved honor for Fisher, and a great sign for the Aztecs. It means the rest of the country has officially put SDSU's basketball program on its radar. For that, we can thank the coach.
