Think back to when the men’s basketball schedule was released. Obviously it was the names like Gonzaga, Cal and ASU that caught your attention first. But when you finally thought about the schedule-filler games on the SDSU slate – games like USD, San Diego Christian and Savannah State – how did they play out in your mind’s eye?
Probably nothing like the way the USD and SD Christian games actually transpired, i.e. a nonexistent Aztecs bench and no offensive threats outside of the three top starters. With every early foul called on Zylan Cheatham or Dakarai Allen causing you to bite your nails down to the quick.
Well, if the Cal win last week officially turned the page on the injury-marred start, tonight seemed like continuation of a new, more exciting chapter.
