BOISE, Idaho (AP) No. 4 San Diego State keeps winning, forcing coach Brian Dutcher to dig deep for creative ways to keep his team focused.

After the Aztecs beat Boise State 72-55 Sunday, he revealed some of his slogans that keep the team on task.

"Early in the year, we had five games in eleven days, so we were like, `Let's win five in eleven,'" Dutcher said. "And then we had five games the entire month of December, so we said, `Let's win five in December.' And we did it. I told our team they don't hang a banner for twenty wins, so we hung a banner with four to go."
