The skinny: Fresno State plays San Diego State for first time since 76-70 victory at 2013 Mountain West tourney locked up Bulldogs' sixth straight NCAA bid. Senior Taylor Thompson is averaging 16.3 points, 5.0 rebounds and 4.0 assists in perfect start to conference play that has seen team shoot 45.5% and hold teams to 54.8 ppg. … Aztecs, who had conference's best regular-season record a year ago and tried to hire Bulldogs coach Raegan Pebley away in offseason, are led by senior center and Louisville transfer Cierra Warren (13.1 ppg, 5.7 rpg). San Diego native Stacie Terry was lured from an assistant's job at Louisiana State after all-time program winningest coach Beth Burns unexpectedly retired in April following 16 seasons with the Aztecs.
