SDSU made a concerted effort to score inside. Their four post players had 25 of the team’s 61 attempts. They were not particularly effective in part because the referees did not award many free throws. (Don De Mars/EVT) 
SDSU shot better from deep than from inside the three-point line. They were 10-24 (41.7%) from three and 12-37 (32%) from two. (Don De Mars/EVT)
