No. 5 San Diego St. hits road to Laramie looking to set school record with 21st straight win

Going to Wyoming has always been the least-favorite road trip for San Diego State's basketball team.

Two years ago, the Aztecs chartered a plane to Laramie with nightmarish results — it took 20 hours because the plane was grounded overnight in Utah by a snowstorm.

Last year, the Aztecs scored only 9 points in the first half of a 58-45 loss in Laramie.

So if the Aztecs can extend their winning streak to 21 games by beating the Cowboys in Laramie on Tuesday night, it will be a school record well-earned.

The great 2010-11 SDSU team also won 20 in a row but was denied a 21st straight by Jimmer Fredette and BYU.

Star point guard Xavier Thames missed the game at Wyoming last year with a back injury.
