SDSU Aztecs Escape Long Beach with Close 76-72 Win

SDSU Aztecs forward Trey Kell

In front of a large contingent of SDSU Aztecs fans that made the drive up from San Diego to Long Beach, Steve Fisher’s team was able to hold off a late rally from Long Beach State and now head home with a much-needed 76-72 victory.

This game saw the usual offensive inconsistencies that we’ve come to expect from the Aztecs, but Trey Kell got going in the second half and ended up leading the team in scoring with 13 points. Malik Pope added in 9 points and 8 rebounds, and Ben Perez added 10 points with some excellent outside shooting.

Freshman Point Guard Jeremy Hemsley racked up 10 points and 4 assists quickly, but also got into foul trouble early. His absence at the end of the game nearly helped the 49ers get back into this one.

SDSU’s next game will be on Sunday against USD at Petco Park, followed by home games against Nicholls and Grand Canyon. Those games lead up to a 12/22 home matchup against the Kansas Jayhawks that could put SDSU on the fast track to the NCAA Tournament once again.
