FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) -- Jamaal Franklin scored a career-high 35 points, including the go-ahead three-point play in overtime, and No. 21 San Diego State claimed a share of its second consecutive Mountain West Conference title with a 98-92 victory over TCU on Saturday night. The Aztecs (24-6, 10-4 MWC) blew an 18-point lead in the second half. Franklin made a driving layup while being fouled with 3:34 left in overtime, then hit the free throw for an 88-85 lead. After a TCU miss, Xavier Thames added another layup for San Diego State. TCU (17-13, 7-7) had won eight straight home games, the last two over Top 25 teams. San Diego State will share the Mountain West regular-season title with New Mexico (24-6, 10-4), which beat Boise State at home earlier Saturday. But the Aztecs, the two-time defending tournament champion, will be the No. 1 seed in next week's conference tournament in Las Vegas.

Dons & Mustangs beat in Aztec Invitational

Both USF and Cal Poly, two teams I have touted in the early season, dropped their opening contest in the San Diego State Aztec Invitational.  USF's loss was particularly bad, considering they led Wisconsin-Milwaukee (really?) 5-1 headed to the bottom of the ninth, then made three errors (along with two in the first inning) and blew the game.  USF is not a team that dominates...

San Diego St.-TCU Preview

A tie for the Mountain West title was only good enough for San Diego State to gain the No. 2 seed in the conference tournament last season. This time, a tie will earn it the No. 1 seed. The No. 21 Aztecs can clinch at least a share of the Mountain West crown Saturday night if they end TCU's eight-game home win streak. San Diego State (23-6, 9-4) lost its top four scorers from...
