A showdown with an NCAA Tournament team and another national brand in Vegas, as well as a trip Kawhi Leonard’s new home highlight the Aztecs 2019-2020 schedule.
San Diego State released their upcoming college basketball schedule Wednesday.
Brian Dutcher’s program will face Creighton, and either Texas Tech or Iowa at the Las Vegas Invitational. The Aztecs will take on the Bluejays at Orleans Arena on November 28. The following day they’ll go head-to-head with a team that made it to the Big Dance last season. The Red Raiders would provide a high-profile matchup, having made it to the NCAA Championship Game in April against Virginia.
SDSU will also head to Staples Center December 21 to race Utah in the Basketball Hall of Fame Classic. The Aztecs will play on Leonard’s new home court, while the former SDSU star’s new team is in San Antonio.
In another notable game away from Viejas Arena, the team will visit former Mountain West opponent BYU on November 9.
Dutcher’s team will head crosstown to take on San Diego at Jenny Craig Pavilion. The Toreros won their meeting on the Mesa last season. San Diego State will also face UC San Diego October 30 in an exhibition.
The season officially begins November 5 with a visit from Texas Southern. They’ll play two conference games in December – at Colorado State December 4, and against San Jose State four days later.
They enter Mountain West play for good with a New Years Day visit from former Aztec assistant Justin Hutson and Fresno State.
San Diego State will have 20 games televised over the course of the regular season.
