Aztecs play complete game, rout Nevada – San Diego Union-Tribune
The Aztecs played the game everyone has been awaiting in a season sodden by enormous (and perhaps unreasonable) expectations, waxing Nevada 70-56 by doing all the things they had shown in spurts but not for 40 minutes, by diving for loose balls, by rotating on defense, by attacking the rim, by making the extra pass, by blocking shots into the cheerleaders – by taking a double-digit lead and, yes, actually extending it.

“It’ll be fiercely competitive. We knew that coming in,” Dean Spanos said. “With success here there’s great upside. We have a lot of consultants, [Fabiani] being one, but I think one of the big things for us is we have to keep being engaged with the media as best we can. We want our players up here. We’re going to have a presence up here as best we can until we actually get moved in.

“If I could move tomorrow, I would move tomorrow.”

That move won’t happen until well into the summer, but in the meantime, the Chargers are committed to taking one of Los Angeles’ biggest challenges — visibility — head-on.

“It’s crazy,” Myers said this week as he sat in his condominium in downtown Charlotte, exactly a week before heading to spring training. “The Chargers left, and I signed right after that.

I’m excited for it.”
