SAN DIEGO (AP) - Mike Mackell and Tony Bland each scored 13 points to lead San Diego State, as the Aztecs topped Utah 58-56 on Saturday to end a 14-game losing streak to the Utes in the Mountain West Conference.
Down 56-54, Utah had a chance to tie the game coming out of a timeout with 19.6 seconds left. But Nick Jacobson missed an open three-pointer from the right side, and the Aztecs' Aerick Sanders was fouled on the rebound with 5.4 seconds left.
Sanders made two free throws in the double-bonus situation to seal San Diego State's first victory over the Utes since Jan. 22, 1994, when the Aztecs prevailed 76-73 at home.
The Aztecs (11-4, 2-0) capitalized on the poorest shooting game of the season by Utah (12-4, 0-1) in ending the Utes' seven-game winning streak. Utah went 35.3 percent from the field (18 of 51).
Jacobson, who entered the game with a team-high average of 12.9 points per game went only 4-of-16 from the field, missing all eight tries from three-point range. He finished with 11 points.
The victory extended a school-record streak of 11 consecutive wins against unranked opponents by San Diego State at the Division I level. Also, the Aztecs put together consecutive wins to open the conference season for the first time in seven years.
Deandre Moore led the Aztecs with nine rebounds and three assists, while also recording eight points. After holding a 29-28 halftime lead, the Aztecs fell behind 37-31 in the first 3:55 of the second half.
But they used a 9-0 run, including five points by reserve Evan Burns, to move back ahead 44-39 with 9:59 to go.
The Utes came back for a 50-50 tie with 3:04 left but could never regain the
