Even though they did not get the autobid for the Mountain West Conference I was surprised that the Aztecs did not have their name called on Selection Sunday. They would have a been a good addition to the field.
This is a team that is focused on defense and as a result can be a great giant killer. The challenge is that their offense really never came around this season. Don’t be fooled by the 79 and 93 points they have scored in their two NIT wins.
Senior forward Winston Sheppard is looking to go out with a bang. He had a triple double in the win over IPFW and was 20/10 when they beat Washington to advance to this one.
He is a versatile player who has been the heart of the program.
Sophomore leading scorer Trey Kell will lead the next generation of Aztecs. He is a pure scorer somewhat hemmed in by the system. In 21 minutes against Washington he scored 16 points but did not register a rebound, assist, steal or block.
Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets
The ACC is dominating the NCAA Tournament but they have also had a presence in the NIT. Three teams made it and all three won their opening games. In the second round it was only Georgia Tech that survived.
The Yellow Jackets are decidedly a notch below the contenders in the ACC but there is some talent there. Marcus Georges-Hunt has gotten better every year on campus and leads the team in scoring at 16ppg.
Inside the Jackets have some beef in the form of Nick Jacobs and Charles Mitchell, the latter of which is averaging 10/9. SDSU like to get physical but they are not going to get pushed around.
Georgia Tech is going to have to have patience if they want to win some. SDSU is great at being disruptive but if you have a good game plan you can hang with them. Even if the ball is ugly.

Free SDSU Aztecs vs. Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets CBB Prediction:
SDSU is all about controlling tempo and killing confidence. When they are at their defensive best they slow things down and force you into the areas of the court where it is tougher to succeed.
Georgia Tech is used to playing against elite teams and have struggled against those that are defensive minded like Virgnia who they lost to by 20 in the ACC tournament.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: SDSU Aztecs -5
The key will be how this game starts. If the Aztecs are motivated and feeling good we will know ealry with their defensive pressure. At this point in the season that can fade if they are not mentally into it.
GT has the talent to push SDSU but similar to the paragraph above are they going to be willing to fight to get where they want on the floor against an intense opponent. Maybe for a while but the Aztecs test your will.
NCAAB Free Score Prediction: SDSU 68 – Georgia Tech 60
If the Aztecs are in control this might not be that much fun to watch but you have to wait a day for the other tournament anyway. Might as well tune in and cash out.
