From Spokane — Former Washington State athletic director Jim Sterk is now performing the same job at San Diego State but his duties have brought him back to the Inland Northwest this weekend for the NCAA tournament. He watched his Aztecs cruise to the Sweet 16 by winning a pair of games over New Mexico State and North Dakota State at the Spokane Arena.
