For the second time in the last seven years, San Diego State basketball was unable to get out of the National Invitation Tournament semifinals, as it lost to George Washington University 65-46 on Tuesday night.
The Aztecs (28-10), after scoring an average of 81 points per game in the first three rounds of the tournament, were held to 46 points on 28.8 percent shooting at the game at Madison Square Garden in New York City.
Junior guard Dakarai Allen led SDSU with 13 points, and went 1-3 from behind the arc, where his team as a whole shot 3-22 (13.6 percent).
A somber senior forward Skylar Spencer, who will end his career as the winningest player in SDSU history, talked about his team’s struggles after the loss.
“It was just a bad game at the wrong time,” Spencer said. “We’ve been playing really good basketball lately and shots have been falling, and one of the biggest games of the year, we couldn’t buy a bucket. Just real bad timing.”
