    Brian Carlwell #5 of the San Diego State Aztecs walks to the bench after being injured during a game against the UNLV Rebels at the Thomas & Mack Center February 12, 2011 in Las Vegas, Nevada. San Diego State won 63-57.

    San Diego State says center Brian Carlwell has been denied a sixth year of eligibility by the NCAA.

    Carlwell had applied for the sixth year based on injuries sustained in a car accident when he was a freshman at Illinois and a knee injury the following season.

    After transferring to SDSU, Carlwell sat out the 2008-09 season. He helped lead the Aztecs to consecutive appearances in the NCAA tournament, including last season's run to the regionals and a 34-3 record.

    Carlwell says he was disappointed when he found out he wouldn't be able to come back.

    The 6-foot-11, 300-pound post presence shot 51.4 percent from the floor last year with 3.8 points, 2.7 rebounds and 0.7 blocks in 11.4 minutes per contest.
