LAS VEGAS (AP) Trey Kell scored 15 points as San Diego State never trailed and beat Nevada 67-55 on Friday night in a Mountain West Conference Tournament semifinal.

The top-seeded Aztecs (25-8) face No. 2 seed Fresno State (24-9) in Saturday's championship game at the Thomas & Mack Center.

Winston Shepard added 13 points for San Diego State, which shot just 66 percent from the line.
