San Diego State Aztecs Basketball

The San Diego Aztecs basketball team were for many decades little more than an obscure regional team. The Aztecs did not even join Division 1 until 1969 and had made just 3 appearances in the NCAA March Madness postseason basketball tournament when the year 2000 rolled by. Things changed with the turn of the millennium, however, since which the Aztecs have not only qualified for 12 March Madness tournaments but also progressed to the Sweet 16 on 3 occasions. Last year, in 2022-23, the Aztecs not only won their conference title but also took the 2023 March Madness tournament by storm, surprising college hoops fans all over America by progressing all the way to the Final Four. There, they squeaked past fellow upstarts the Florida Atlantic Owls by a score of 72-71 to reach the NCAA championship final. Unfortunately for the Aztecs, they found themselves facing the powerful UConn Huskies, who were in no mood for Cinderella stories and defeated the Aztecs by a score of 76–59. Nevertheless, the run to the final was a huge accomplishment that put the Aztecs basketball program firmly on the radar of college basketball fans everywhere. The Aztecs fans, no doubt multiplying after the heights of last year, will be hoping that 2023 was no flash in the pan and will be hoping for their team to take one more step and bring home a title in the years to come.
