Fisher gets 300th W at SDSU No 5 Aztecs top CSU
San Diego State's Xavier Thames (2) shoots over the defense
SAN DIEGO (AP) -- Coach Steve Fisher won his 300th game at San Diego State on Saturday when Xavier Thames scored 24 points and Winston Shepard 17 to lead the No. 5 Aztecs over Colorado State 65-56.
The Aztecs (19-1, 8-0 Mountain West) won their 18th straight game and are 8-0 in conference play for the first time in the program's 93-year history.
Jon Octeus scored 24 for the Rams (12-10, 3-6), who lost their third straight game and for the fourth time in five games.
Fisher's first victory at SDSU came on Nov 24, 1999, 73-57 against UC Riverside. The Aztecs were only 5-23 that season, including 0-14 in league play, but Fisher quickly turned a moribund program into a consistent winner.
