The fifth-ranked San Diego State Aztecs will in fact not run the table in the Mountain West Conference for the 2013-14 college basketball season as they were upset on Tuesday night by the Wyoming Cowboys, 68-62.
San Diego State came into the contest not just unbeaten in the Mountain West, but not having lost a game since the beginning of the year against the then top-ranked Arizona Wildcats. Up to this point, they seemed invincible, but Wyoming proved that theory to be incorrect.
Wyoming got off to a fast start in this one, taking a nine-point lead into the half at 32-23, and they were able to fend off the Aztecs the rest of the way.
Guard Riley Grabau led the way for the Cowboys in the team’s 15th victory on the season, dropping in 17 points while adding in three rebounds and four assists. Larry Nance Jr. was the second leading scorer with 14 points and six rebounds.
With the win, Wyoming improved to 15-9 on the season and 6-5 in the Mountain West, while San Diego State drops to just 21-2 on the season and 10-1 in conference play.
