DeShawn Stephens scored 11 points for SDSU, which had an eight-day layoff for finals.

USD's Ken Rancifer scored 16, while Chris Manresa and Chris Anderson had 11 each. Johnny Dee, who came in leading the Toreros with 15 points, was scoreless in the first half and finished with nine.

The Toreros stayed with SDSU for the opening 10 minutes, using a 6-0 run to lead 18-16.

The Aztecs then scored the next 12 points to take their first double-digit lead of the night at 28-18. JJ O'Brien and James Rahon hit jumpers and Stephens made a layup before Tapley hit his consecutive 3's.

USD closed the gap to 32-26 after Rancifer and Mike Davis made consecutive 3-pointers.

SDSU scored the final seven points of the half to take a 39-26 lead at the break. Franklin made two free throws, O'Brien a layup and Tapley was fouled while taking a 3-pointer and made all three free throws.
