San Diego State is in the third round of the NCAA Tournament in as many years, and they are looking to head back to the Sweet 16, but they first must get back No. 1 seeded Duke Blue Devils.
These two teams play opposite brands of basketball with the Aztecs wanting to slow the game down and limit possessions all while playing great defense. Duke is a top-five offense and wants to push the tempo as they average 80 points per game and shoot 50 percent per game.
The Aztecs made it this far by topping St. John's on a barrage of three-point shots with nine, and Duke had very few issues defeating No. 16 seeded Richmond.
San Diego State will need to replicate that effort on the offensive side of the ball, not necessarily from three-point range but the scoring does. The Aztecs will get Ageel Quinn back at full health who was suffering from a stomach bug in the St. John's game and was limited with 19 points and just two points.
