Game Recap: Fresno State knees SDSU’s season in the groin

The wonderfully obnoxious and arrogant fan chant used to be “We Run Cali.” It started up during an absurd string of 47 consecutive games won by the San Diego State men’s basketball team against California schools — a run snapped three years ago in a loss at Fresno State.

These days, San Diego State doesn’t even run New Cali.

Don’t lump us in with the Fresnoans, Quixotic secessionists!

The Aztecs fell to the Bulldogs again on Tuesday night, 77-73. It’s the second straight season SDSU has lost to Fresno State at Viejas Arena, and the fourth loss in five games against those guys. Such losses were unfathomable not too long ago. Now they don’t elicit much more than mild cursing under the breath followed by a resigned shrug.

Things sure aren’t what they used to be around here.

It all came down to one final shot — an off-balance prayer that had the entire city of San Diego on the edge of its collective seat. The attempt was true, rattling home and sending the raucous crowd at Viejas Arena into hysterics.

Unreal.

Red Panda had done it.

Five bowls, flipped onto her head from atop a god damn unicycle.

Savor the moment, SDSU men’s basketball fans. Because Red Panda’s halftime show Saturday was the closest thing to national relevance that we’ll get to experience for the rest of the regular season.

The Aztecs suffered a last-second 63-62 home loss to a brutally bad Cal team, essentially changing the font on their NCAA tournament resume to Comic Sans.

Game Recap: It’s, uh, not looking good

threepio

It’s pretty silly to freak out about any single loss. Especially if it comes in the second game of the year. Especially especially when that loss is in a true road game against a veteran Pac-12 team that beat you pretty handily last year.

But if you really must freak out now, well, be my guest. Because whatever the hell just happened to the Aztecs men’s basketball in Tempe — officially a 90-68 loss to Arizona State in a game it led by six at the half — was pretty damn appalling.

Perhaps its fitting that Sun Devils’ head coach Bobby Hurley looks like Vladimir Putin because the second half of this game was a veritable pee tape —  a vulgar display debasing everyone involved that will now serve as Kompromat before the NCAA selection committee.

Or the NIT selection committee, whatever.
