Recap


No. 15 San Diego State 79, Colorado State 72 (OT):
Chase Tapley scored 12 of his 19 points in overtime while playing through the flu and the Aztecs downed the visiting Rams in Mountain West play.

Jamaal Franklin scored 18 of his 23 points in the first half and Xavier Thames added 14 points for San Diego State (14-2, 2-0 Mountain West), which blew an 18-point halftime lead before controlling the overtime.

Wes Eikmeier scored 22 points, Colton Iverson had 18 points and 11 rebounds and Daniel Bejarano had 13 points and 11 rebounds for Colorado State (13-3, 0-1), which owned a 54-38 edge on the boards.

Iverson’s putback with 15 seconds left in regulation forced overtime before Tapley took over the extra session. His 3-pointer gave the Aztecs a 68-65 lead and he later scored seven straight points to make it 77-70 with 16.7 seconds left.

Ten of San Diego State’s 13 first-half baskets were 3-pointers. Franklin hit four and Thames hit three as the Aztecs built a 41-23 halftime lead. Colorado State began the second half with a 12-2 run and whittled its way back into the game, finally catching the Aztecs at 61-61 on Eikmeier’s jumper with 1:42 remaining.
