Hall of Fame Class of 2015
One of the finest players in San Diego State history, Anthony Watson played in 110 games in his four seasons from the 1982-83 campaign through the 1985-86 season, with SDSU posting a 66-50 record. The leading scorer on the 1985 NCAA Tournament team and third-leading scorer in SDSU history with 1,735 career points, Watson was the last Aztec player to earn most valuable player league honors until 2006 (1985-86 WAC Player of the Year). He was a two-time first-team all-WAC selection (1985 and 1986)... In both 1985 and 1986 he was named to the all-WAC tournament team and was the first Aztec Division I player to be named to the all-conference tournament team twice. Watson ended his career as the fourth-leading scorer in WAC history trailing only Devin Durrant, Danny Ainge and SDSU’s Michael Cage. He combined for 93 starts during his time at SDSU and his 22.5 points per game average in the 1985-86 season is second in school history, while his 702 career field goals were the most by any Aztec player until 2007. Watson is one of five players in SDSU Division I history to earn league player-of-the-year accolades.
