Forward Matt Mitchell will return to San Diego State for his senior season after exploring his chances in the NBA Draft. Mitchell didn’t hire an agent, so he retained his college eligibility. He was named first-team All-Mountain West last season, when SDSU went 30-2, won the MWC regular-season title and would have been a No.
Former San Diego State University point guard Malachi Flynn was named the 2019-20 Mountain West Male Athlete of the Year this week. He is the third SDSU student-athlete to receive the award, following in the footsteps of football's Rashaad Penny and track and field's Shanieka Thomas, who were the 2017-18 MW Male Athlete of the Year and 2012-13 MW Female Athlete of the Year, respectively. The announcement was made Wednesday at the conference's office in Colorado Springs, Colo.
