San Diego State is college basketball’s last remaining undefeated team this season. But the Aztecs’ perfect record is in major jeopardy.
SDSU is currently trailing UNLV 37-25 at the half. Given the Aztecs on playing on their home-court, this would truly be a stunning upset. But there’s plenty of time remaining for a comeback in the second half.
The Aztecs are currently projected as a No. 1 seed, according to Bracketology expert Joe Lunardi. San Diego State’s made light-work of its regular season schedule thus far, going a perfect 26-0 and annihilating conference opponents along the way. But the 14-14 Rebels are posing a major challenge tonight.
UNLV is shooting light-out from the court, draining 15-of-26 shots in the first-half. Meanwhile, San Diego State is shooting just 33 percent overall and a miserable 2-for-12 from three-point range. Here’s a look at the first-half stats, courtesy of UNLV Men’s Basketball:

If San Diego State loses this game, it’ll be interesting to see how it impacts the Aztecs’ NCAA Tournament seeding. SDSU is currently a projected No. 1 seed, primarily due to its undefeated record.
But a stunning loss to an average opponent, like UNLV, could cost the Aztecs the highest seed-line.
