You didn’t think we were done, did you?

The San Diego State softball team defeated UNLV 7-0 on Friday, clinching the Mountain West title and bringing the school’s 2012-13 total to 10 conference championships.

Many were impressed by the statistics in the #SDSUisWinning article, which stated that the Aztecs had won nine conference championships in current academic year.

It also stated that there was potential for more.

SDSU proved that on Friday, shutting out the Rebels and winning its second straight MW championship. Freshmen phenom Danielle O’Toole pitched six scoreless innings and junior Lorena Bauer went 2-for-3 with four RBIs to lead the Aztecs.

With the victory, San Diego State earned the league’s automatic bid for the NCAA tournament, which begins on May 16. Be sure to tune in to the NCAA Division 1 Softball Championship Selection Show on May 12 to find out what seed the Aztecs receive and who they will face.

Go Aztecs!

After securing at least a share of the Mountain West regular-season title last week, the San Diego State women’s basketball team looks to win the conference outright as it travels to Air Force tonight. The Aztecs (22-5, 13-1) defeated the Falcons (4-23, 3-11) handily in the previous meeting, notching a 68-46 victory at Viejas Arena.

In the midst of a 13-game win streak, San Diego State is arguably one of the hottest teams in the country. Behind the stellar play of seniors Chelsea Hopkins and Courtney Clements, the Aztecs are now receiving votes in both the AP rankings and the USA Today coaches poll.

Be sure to keep an eye on head coach Beth Burns and her team this month as they attempt to continue their win streak and keep the momentum going into postseason play.

Tonight’s game tips off at 7 p.m. MT (6 p.m. PT). Although it is not televised, Chris Ello will hold a live audio webcast available on GoAztecs.com.
