Led by head coach Steve Fisher and his experienced core of upperclassmen, the Aztecs have been one of the best teams in the country this season. They have posted an impressive 24-5 record, with notable wins over top-ranked Duke, Arizona, and UCLA. On the offensive side, San Diego State has been led by senior guard Trey Kell and sophomore guard Jeremy Hemsley. The pair have combined to average over 25 points per game and have been the driving force behind the Aztecs’ offensive success.

The Aztecs have also been successful on the defensive end, ranking in the top 20 nationally in both points allowed per game and field goal percentage allowed. The team has been anchored by senior forward Malik Pope, who leads the team in rebounding and blocks.

With their strong regular season performance, the Aztecs have earned a No. 3 seed in the NCAA tournament. This gives them a great opportunity to make a deep run and potentially compete for the national title. The Aztecs have the talent, experience, and coaching to make a run, and will be a tough out in the tournament.
