SAN DIEGO (AP) -- Chase Tapley scored 12 of his 19 points in overtime, including two 3-pointers and a layup off a steal, and No. 16 San Diego State held off Colorado State 79-72 Saturday night.

After Colton Iverson made two free throws for a 65-63 lead 57 seconds into overtime, Tapley re-energized the Aztecs (14-2, 2-0 Mountain West). He made a jumper for the Aztecs' first field goal since 7:43 left in regulation and then hit a 3-pointer for a 68-65 lead with 3:14 left.

CSU's Wes Eikmeier made a 3-pointer to tie it before the Aztecs regained the lead on JJ O'Brien's tip-in.

Tapley then stole the ball went coast-to-coast for a layup and then made another 3-pointer for a 75-68 lead with 1:18 left.

Jamaal Franklin had 23 points, including five 3-pointers, and Xavier Thames 14 for SDSU.
