Trey Kell scored 15 points and No. 15 San Diego State shot its way into the Maui Invitational championship game, romping over Pittsburgh 74-57 Tuesday night.

San Diego State (5-0) had a tough opener against BYU, but cruised through the semifinals with an impressive shooting display.

The Aztecs built a 15-point lead by halftime and had their way inside against the Panthers, shooting 58 percent from the floor to set up a marquee matchup against No. 3 Arizona in the title game Wednesday night.

Winston Shepard had 13 points for San Diego State, and Angelo Chol added 10.

Pittsburgh (3-2) was no match against the athletic Aztecs, unable to stop them defensively or get much going on offense.

The Panthers shot 37 percent and went 5 for 17 from 3-point range. James Robinson led Pitt with 17 points.
