ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — Coach Steve Fisher is almost ready to say it: smooth-shooting point guard D.J. Gay is San Diego State’s best player.
Gay scored a career-high 30 points, Kawhi Leonard had 19 points and 15 rebounds and No. 6 San Diego State beat New Mexico 87-77 on Saturday night to remain one of the nation’s four unbeaten teams.
Fisher said he has maintained all season that Gay is arguably the team’s most important player.
“I somewhat qualified it, probably making him mad, saying he’s not our best player but he’s our most important player,” Fisher said. “He’s inching up to not only be our most important player but our best player. He was fantastic. He plays with no fear, no agenda.”
Chase Tapley added 15 points and the Aztecs (19-0, 4-0 Mountain West) made 13 of 25 from 3-point range to win for the fourth time in their last six visits to The Pit and extend the country’s longest active win streak to a school-record 19 games.
“We’ve had some good fortune here,” Fisher said. “We’ve gotten a little lucky at times, but today was not luck. We were very, very good at both ends of the floor.”
