AztecReport.com hands out grades for the San Diego State players after cruising pass Arkansas-Pine…
The Facts: Arkansas-Pine Bluff at #25 SDSU
QUOTABLE: "Chase (Tapley) got us off the snide with his perimeter shooting when we had open looks and didn't make them early, and then he started making a couple. And often, when one guy makes one, then the next guy can make one and we had a stretch where we made four, five, six in a row I think - and it was keyed by Chase."
-- SDSU head coach Steve Fisher on the Aztecs breaking their shooting woes.
THE STAT: The Aztecs shot a season-best 40.7 percent (11-for-27) from three-point range.
TURNING POINT: Game was tied 6-6 at the second media timeout (11:45 in first half). San Diego State closed the half on a 30-8 run.
THE NUMBER: 7. The amount of turnovers by the Aztecs.
QUOTABLE II: "It feels good. Finally, after so many games getting nine rebounds, I think, but it felt good. I should be doing it all the time. I just have to keep working hard."
-- SDSU forward DeShawn Stephens on his first career double-double.
HOT: Tapley broke the outside shooting drought for SDSU by going 5-for-8 from beyond the arc.
NOT: James Rahon couldn't buy a bucket; missing on 11-of-13 attempts including 0-of-6 from downtown.
FRESHMAN WATCH: Skylar Spencer had 12 points, 5 rebounds and 2 blocks in 16 minutes of play. He made 4-of-5 field goal attempts and connected on 4-of-7 from the line.
NOTABLE: SDSU allowed 14 first-half points. It's the fewest it has allowed since giving up 13 in the first half to Wyoming on Jan. 19, 2008.
UP NEXT: For San Diego State: Sunday at USC and next Saturday vs. UCLA (in Anaheim, CA). Arkansas-Pine Bluff: Saturday at Washington State and Wednesday at Arizona State.
