All-Time Mountain West Basketball: No. 2 SDSU vs. No. 15 UNLV
Who will win between the 2020 Aztecs and 2011 Rebels
Round 2 of our best of seven series.
Round 2 is another fun matchup, as UNLV was the only team to beat 2020 SDSU in the regular season. Can the 2011 UNLV team pull off the upset?
It’ll be tough. They don’t have the best size in their starting lineup and they do not seem well equipped to take advantage of the Aztec’s weaknesses. Both teams focus on defense, but San Diego State is very well balanced and UNLV’s offense lags behind its defense.
Keys for UNLV: Collect offensive rebounds, as SDSU can struggle on the glass, force turnovers to get the ball out of Flynn’s hands.
Keys for SDSU: Play inside out and use Yanni Wetzell’s size to your advantage, Protect the rim as UNLV doesn’t shoot well from the perimeter.
