Dutcher named national coach of the year, Flynn second-team All-American

San Diego State men’s basketball head coach Brian Dutcher was named national coach of the year by USA Today Sports Monday and junior guard Malachi Flynn was given numerous All-American accolades throughout the past week.

In his third year at the helm, Dutcher led the Aztecs to a 30-2 record, including a program-best finish to a regular season (28-1). The Aztecs were the last undefeated team in the nation at 26-0 and won the Mountain West Conference regular season title with four games remaining in conference play.

Dutcher also reached the conference tournament championship game for the third straight year and was one of four teams in Division I to reach 30 wins.
