2013-14 #AztecMBB Preseason Accolades

Sporting News College Basketball preseason magazine has once again highlighted members of the San Diego State program as it looks ahead to the 2013-14 campaign. The regional cover, which is on newsstands now, has senior Xavier Thames on the inset.

The publication names Thames as one of the Mountain West's top-10 players and senior classmate Josh Davis as one of the league's top-10 newcomers. Head coach Steve Fisher, who is considered one of the conference's top-5 coaches, also brings in the 66th-best recruiting class nationally. Fisher's incoming class is two deep and ranks 10th nationally among groups featuring two players or less.

SDSU, which returns just two starters and projected to finish in fourth place, is coming off a school-record fourth straight appearance in the NCAA tournament where it advanced past the second round for the second time in three seasons. Last year, the Aztecs finished with a 23-11 record, which represented their eighth-consecutive campaign of 20 or more wins, and their postseason berth was their eighth in a row as well.
