The Hawks lost 91-58 at San Diego on Friday night and have six more exhibitions against Division I teams.
Earlier Tuesday, SDSU freshman forward Winston Shepard was suspended for three games by the NCAA for violating preferential treatment legislation. SDSU said it has appealed the penalty, but the suspension will be enforced during the process. The school declined to provide specifics, saying only that the player inadvertently violated a rule and that the coaching staff reported it to the compliance staff, which self-reported it to the NCAA.
Shepard was cited for marijuana possession on campus in late June. A school spokesman said Shepard was disciplined by coach Steve Fisher, which did not involve being suspended from games.
San Diego State took a 4-0 lead in the first 23 seconds. The Aztecs got the tip and Franklin made a layup. JJ O'Brien stole the ball and fed Tapley for a layup.
DeShawn Stephens scored seven of the Aztecs' next nine points for a 13-8 lead.
San Diego State made only four of 19 shots from 3-point range. On Sunday, the Aztecs made only one of 18 3-pointers against Syracuse.
