Gameday Tidbits

* Today's game will tipoff at 7:15 p.m. PT.

* Of the 70 Division I men's basketball games tonight, the New Mexico-San Diego State game is the only one that features a pair of 20-win teams.

* For the second consecutive season, San Diego State forward Tim Shelton has written and performed a song about the Aztec basketball team. A 45-second version of the 3:10 song will played as the intro video prior to the announcement of the San Diego State starting lineup. This year's song, entitled "Aztec Motto" will be played for the fifth consecutive home game today.

* Former San Diego State linebacker and two-time All-American Kirk Morrison is scheduled to lead the SDSU student section in the pregame "I Believe" chant. Morrison was a member of the Aztec Football team from 2001-2004 and last season played for the Buffalo Bills.
