Frank, first time I had watched SDSU all season. Scary good defense, outstanding rebounding team. Thames is a a tremendous scorer. AZ's Johmson was off most of the night, but a lot of that was due to SDSU's D. I didn't think AZ was going to pull it out. Very gritty win for AZ. SDSU has nothing to be ashamed of in that game.
There is definitely reason to be optimistic for next year, with much of the team returning and a much ballyhooed freshman class coming in, along with transfer Chol becoming eligible. However, they are losing one of the best players in the country in Thames, and one of the best rebounders, particularly offensively (Davis) that I have ever seen. These are very big shoes to fill.
Top ten? maybe, but there are still some big question marks.
