Ghana’s budding Basketball star Nathan Mensah has been picked out as a reason for San Diego State University’s tag as favorite to win the Mountain West Conference in the US Men’s College Basketball 2020-2021 season.
In his Preseason Power Rankings, well respected College Basketball Analyst Jon Rothstein put The Aztecs at the top of his rankings largely on the back of the team’s brilliant past campaign where San Diego lost just a game in 28 outings in the regular season.
The post season was cancelled due to the corona virus pandemic preventing the team from competing in the NCAA Tournament.
On top of San Diego’s splendid record, Rothstein noted the return of three starters on that team including Mensah is another reason for the team’s high ranking.
Mensah played 13 games and was on his way to a breakout campaign in his second year at the College before a lung problem ended his season. He is expected to be fully fit to play in the upcoming season.
