SAN DIEGO - Jaedon LeDee scored 21 points and Adam Seiko 14 for the No. 18 San Diego State Aztecs, who celebrated the outright regular-season Mountain West Conference title with a 67-50 victory against Wyoming.

Matt Bradley added 11 points for the Aztecs (24-6, 15-3 MWC), who clinched the conference championship at halftime, thanks to Boise State's 86-73 loss at Utah State. The Aztecs had earned a share of the title a week earlier with a buzzer-beating win at New Mexico, but missed taking it outright when they failed to hold a late nine-point lead and lost 66-60 at Boise State on Tuesday night.

But that gave a sellout crowd of 12,414 at Viejas Arena the chance to celebrate and watch the players cut down the nets on Senior Night. It's the third regular-season title in Brian Dutcher's six seasons as coach.

SDSU heads to Las Vegas as the No. 1 seed in pursuit of its seventh MWC tournament title and an automatic berth in the NCAA Tournament.

Jeremiah Oden scored 17 and Xavier DuSell had 16 for last-place Wyoming (9-21, 4-14), which was coming off an impressive win against Nevada but couldn't keep pace with the Aztecs.

SDSU led by one point six minutes into the game before taking control with a 10-0 run. LeDee started it with a slam dunk, Darrion Trammell and Micah Parrish hit 3-pointers and Aguek Arop scored inside for a 19-8 lead.

The Aztecs pushed the lead to 34-15 before Wyoming scored the last seven points of the half.

SDSU had a season-high nine blocked shots, three by Arop.

BIG PICTURE

Wyoming: The Cowboys lost for the 10th straight time to the Aztecs.

San Diego State: The Aztecs have won a league-record 15 titles, including nine regular-season and six tourney championships. Of the nine regular-season crowns, eight are outright.
