SAN DIEGO (AP) - Kawhi Leonard had 17 points and 12 rebounds, and No. 9 San Diego State beat Colorado State 66-48 on Saturday night to share the Mountain West Conference title with No. 3 BYU.
The Aztecs (29-2, 14-2) will be the No. 2 seed in the MWC tournament at Las Vegas. BYU will be No. 1 because of its two 13-point wins against the Aztecs. SDSU got the chance to share the title when BYU lost to New Mexico by 18 points on Wednesday night, a day after forward Brandon Davies was kicked off the team for breaking the school's honor code.
Students rushed the court at the buzzer to celebrate the second conference title in coach Steve Fisher's 12 seasons at SDSU, and the first for this group of players.
Leonard, a sophomore forward, had his 21st double-double of the season and 38th of his career.
Andy Ogide scored 11 for Colorado State (19-11, 9-7), which lost for the fourth time in five games.
