Cheatham, Shrigley lead Aztecs to 100-67 victory vs Tigers
SAN DIEGO (AP) Zylan Cheatham scored 18 points and Matt Shrigley had 15, all on 3-pointers in the first half, to lead San Diego State to a 100-67 victory against Savannah State on Monday night.
Max Hoetzel added 15, Jeremy Hemsley 14 and Montaque Gill-Caesar 12 for the Aztecs (4-1), who were playing for the first time in a week following a 77-65 victory against California at Sacramento.
Dexter McClanahan scored 13 for Savannah State (2-6).
With the Aztecs leading 99-65, the SDSU student section started chanting ''One more point.'' They got it when Valentine Izundu made the front end of a one-and-one with 46 seconds left.
Shrigley made his five 3-pointers in a span of less than seven minutes in the first half, helping the Aztecs take a 43-24 lead. After Shrigley made his fifth shot from behind the arc, Cheatham dribbled the length of the court for a tomahawk dunk.
