San Diego State Basketball seniors Winston Shepard III, Angelo Chol and Skylar Spencer were honored before the team’s 92-56 win over rival University of Nevada, Las Vegas.
In what was their final game at Viejas Arena, the trio combined for 28 points — 18 of those coming from Shepard — along with 17 rebounds in 62 minutes of play on Saturday night.
Each player was given his respects as they made their way to center court, where they raised their framed jerseys, immortalizing each of their legacies at SDSU.
For Shepard, that legacy will be that he is one of only 11 active players in the NCAA to have 1,000 points, 600 rebounds and 250 assists in his career, and the only such Aztec to record those numbers.
The 6’9″ Spencer leaves as the greatest shot-blocker in Mountain West history with 283 swats.
Likewise he, along with Shepard, hold the distinction of having the most career wins in MW history, surpassing BYU’s Jimmer Fredette late this season.
With only four more games played, Spencer could also hold the record for most games played in MW history.
Together, Chol, Shepard and Spencer had a hand in 104 wins, three MW regular-season titles and three NCAA tournament appearances, including the sweet 16 reached in 2014.
The seniors will have the opportunity to make their fourth tournament in as many years when they play as the No.1 seed in the upcoming MW tournament, which begins on March 9.
