College basketball rankings: Aidan Mahaney powers WCC-favorite Saint Mary’s over New Mexico


Most of the top returning players in college basketball are bigs like Purdue’s Zach Edey, North Carolina’s Armando Bacot, Duke’s Kyle Filipowski, Kansas’ Hunter Dickinson and Creighton’s Ryan Kalkbrenner. But there are also some really good experienced guards playing for relevant programs this season, and one of the best was on display late Thursday.
His name is Aidan Mahaney.
The 6-foot-3 sophomore made five 3-pointers and finished with a game-high 25 points and four rebounds in Saint Mary’s 72-58 victory over New Mexico. He’s the centerpiece of a SMC roster that returns four of the top five scorers from last season’s team that shared the West Coast Conference regular-season title with Mark Few’s Gonzaga’s Bulldogs.
