San Diego State has won the Wooden Legacy, defeating Marquette by a score of 67-59. Only one Aztec scored in double figures on Sunday, that being guard Xavier Thames.
Thames earned MVP of the tournament, having scored 29 points in the finals and averaging 22.0 points over the three game holiday tournament.
On paper, this game could not have been any closer, aside from late free throws that salted the win away for the Aztecs, in what seemed more like a home game than neutral site contest for them.
The most glaring statistical difference is SDSU's 6-of-12 three-point shooting, compared to Marquette's 1-of-11 shooting from behind the arc.
George Washington finished third in the tournament, followed by Creighton in fourth. San Diego State was able to notch back-to-back victories over the Big East's top two squads this week and could find themselves in the top 25 come tomorrow.
