Aztecs could be undone at point

The cliché says that winning in college basketball starts with the point guard, and in the aftermath of Shabazz Napier leading Connecticut to a national title, there certainly seems to be some truth to that.

In scanning the teams likely to populate the 2014-15 preseason top 25, however, there are two otherwise loaded rosters that give me pause at the point guard position. The first is Kansas, a team my colleague Myron Medcalf addresses today. But I'd contend that when it comes to being vulnerable due to that position alone, you could make a case that San Diego State is equally, if not more, vulnerable at the position.
