Aztecs Dancing With No. 2 Seed

They'll face Northern Colorado first



    San Diego State’s road to the Final Four will start in Arizona.

    The Aztecs are a No. 2 seed and will travel to Tuscon to face Northern Colorado on Thursday in their first game of the NCAA Division I men’s basketball tournament, the selection committee announced Sunday.

    The Mountain West Conference Tournament champs will play out of the West Region, which features Duke as its top seed and No. 3 Connecticut and No. 4 Texas among the top outliers.

    The region's other teams are Arizona, Bucknell, Cincinnati, Hampton, Michigan, Memphis, Missouri, Oakland, Penn St., Temple and Tennessee.
