The top-seeded Arizona Wildcats are widely picked to reach the Final Four at minimum. Before they can leave the Sweet 16 in the rearview mirror, they have to defeat the San Diego Aztecs who are by no means a slouch opponent. A great 2014 NCAA Tournament basketball game awaits tonight when we watch Arizona vs San Diego State online free live streaming on the TBS TV channel.
The Wildcats and Aztecs were in a similar situation three years ago as each squad advanced to the Sweet 16 and had a shot at moving up to the next round. However, both schools lost that year so they see this as a chance for redemption. For one of these schools it will be while the other will be forced to pack their bags.
The last Arizona San Diego State basketball game was back in mid-November. The Wildcats pulled out that game 69-60 on the road with Nick Johnson scoring 23 points and Aaron Gordon chipping in an 16 points. Arizona was leading by as many at 14 points in the first half until SDSU cut it to four in the second. The Wildcats eventually pulled away for the win.
Tonight’s Wildcats Aztecs game should be another defensive battle with both teams scoring under 70 points. These two teams put up similar defensive numbers over the season with Arizona holding its opponents to 87.2 points per 100 possessions, while the Aztecs aren’t too far behind at 90.3. Both teams hold opponents to under 40 percent shooting per game.
While the Aztecs are known for thriving off steals as they double up their opponents in that category, it was AU who used 21 turnovers – including 15 steals – to blow out Gonzaga in the previous game by 23 points. In comparison, the Aztecs have only given up 17 total turnovers through the first two games of the 2014 NCAA Tournament.
San Diego State is a formidable opponent for the Wildcats to face, but it seems like Arizona is clicking on all cylinders and destined to advance. I expect a final score favoring the team from Tucson.
