One of the best sports day’s in San Diego is upon us. The Aztecs tip off against OU this evening in the Big Dance. This is the real post season of college basketball.
I think it would be easy to make the assumption that SDSU are limping in to the Big Dance, but I would disagree. SDSU has won 4 of their last 7, and 2 of their 3 losses were to New Mexico. They have played well as of late, Xavier Thames is healthy, and Jamaal Franklin can take over a game at any moment.
Experience can be overplayed, but this isn’t one of those cases. OU has all of 12 minutes of March Madness experience. (Romero Osby prior to transfer) San Diego State is doing this for the fourth consecutive season. Watch for the Aztecs to look like the more experienced team right out of the gates.
Calling my shot: 67-59 AZTECS
