Sweet Sixteen Preview: SDSU vs. Uconn

How sweet it is to be in the Sweet 16. For a team like San Diego State, this may be an unimaginable dream as they prepare to face the thrashing #3 Uconn Huskies tonight at 7:15. This is a battle between the #2 and 3 seeded teams, however that fact gets thrown out the window tonight because this is where pride and true skill are put to the test. The team I chose since day one to blast onto the college basketball scene (which they did) and make a statement is SDSU. Led by Kawhi Leonard and forward Malcom Thomas, the Aztecs are one of the hottest teams in basketball. After a dominating season, beating teams like Utah and UNLV (who aren't the toughest opponents, San Diego State suffered two losses to "Jimmer and the Gang". Round 3 between these two heavyweights went to the Aztecs which boosted their confidence level heading into the tournament. After beating Northern Colorado and surviving a scare from the Temple Owls, the Aztecs now understand what it means to be a worthy tournament team. I believe this team has not received the the amount of credit they deserve, but then again being the "underdog" against Kemba Walker and Uconn could play into their hands. Uconn hasn't had too much trouble throughout March Madness so far, as they steam rolled through Bucknell and handled the Cincy Bearcats with ease. However, tonight's game will give the Huskies their first true test of the tournament. They have proven to be one of the most balanced and highly efficient teams late in the season as they were projected to finish tenth in the Big East and ended up in third place. Kemba will show up to play, but can the Aztecs spear him down? Not to mention this game is being played in Anaheim in the home state of SDSU. A long trip for Uconn may mean an even longer trip home as San Diego State looks to strike down a dangerous Big East opponent and show that they too can play with the best. Do not miss this game tonight! It's sure to be an incredible battle under the lights.

Go Aztecs!
