The Aztecs don't usually enjoy playing at the Jenny Craig Pavillion, but they did on Friday night. They turned USD's home floor into a real home court advantage, as they dominated Kansas State 70-52 to advance to the quarter-finals of the NIT.
What was just a two point game at the half, turned into a San Diego State rout. They had balanced scoring, and played terrific defense in setting a school record with their 25th win. The Aztecs also won a second post season game for the first time ever, and more importantly moved to within one victory of a trip to New york for the NIT semi finals.
"The fans were great, and so were my team mates," said Williams. " They played with great energy in taking care of business, and setting us up for Wednesday."
