No. 18/15 #AztecMBB to Face Indiana State Sunday
Dec. 22, 2012
No. 18/15 San Diego State will meet Indiana State in the semifinals of the 2012 Diamond Head Classic on Sunday at Stan Sheriff Center.
Game time is set for noon HT/2 p.m. PT and the contest will be broadcast nationally by ESPNU. Kanoa Leahy and Sean Farnham will have the call on television. The non-conference tilt can also be heard on radio on AM 600 KOGO and 101 KGB with Ted Leitner providing the description.
The Aztecs are looking to extend several significant winning streaks, including an 10-game overall win streak (7th-longest active win streak nationally), a 23-game December win streak (second-longest nationally) and an 11-game win streak at multi-team in-season events.
SDSU finds itself in the semifinals vs. Indiana State after a career afternoon for senior guard Chase Tapley. The Sacramento, Calif., native went off for a career-high 33 points, which was three shy of the tournament record, on the strength of a personal-record 13 field goals, including a season-high-tying six three-pointers. What is more impressive is that he scored his 33 points in 26 minutes, 33 seconds, after not scoring in the first 7 minutes, 20 seconds of the game and the final 6 minutes, 7 seconds. Tapley led a foursome of Aztecs who scored in double figures in Jamaal Franklin (11 points), DeShawn Stephens (10 points) and Xavier Thames (10 points).
