The Aztecs (24-6) are the top seed and have played well all year. They have already beaten the Rams twice this year. The Rams (15-17) are the eighth seed, coming off a 67-65 victory over Fresno State. Can CSU win again and advance, or will the Aztecs prove to be too much and roll through the Rams?

San Diego State is the better team, undoubtedly. They have a talented bench and play smart basketball. The Aztecs have dominated the Rams this year, and I think that trend continues today.

They have been solid all year and have more than one weapon in their arsenal. For more NCAA Men’s Basketball News, CLICK HERE.
