San Diego State vs UConn Picks & Prediction

The tournament committee planned things out nicely with a rematch of last season’s National Championship game in the Sweet 16.

UConn rolled past San Diego State in the title game last April, 76-59 as 6.5-point favorites. The Aztecs were limited to 32% shooting from the floor, including 6-of-23 from 3-point range.

The key for San Diego State here in the rematch is not playing in a large football stadium, instead heading to TD Garden in Boston. The Aztecs knocked out UAB and Yale in the first two rounds, as they avoided 4th-seeded Auburn in the second round.

San Diego State destroyed Yale on Sunday night, 85-57 as 5.5-point favorites, marking only its second cover in the last eight games. The Aztecs own a 2-5-1 ATS mark as an underdog this season, but all five of those ATS losses came as a ‘dog of four points or less.

UConn cruised to a pair of victories in the first two rounds over Stetson and Northwestern, while easily covering each time as a double-digit favorite.

There’s no criticism for Dan Hurley’s team at this point, which has lost one game since late December and has allowed 58 points or fewer in three straight wins.

However, the Aztecs are receiving more points in this game than they did in the National Championship last season, in which they were coming off the buzzer-beating win over FAU in the Final Four.

In the last seven games, SDSU has not allowed an opponent to shoot better than 50% on its 2-point attempts, while UConn is coming off 61% and 81% efforts on 2-point tries in two tournament wins.

Let’s grab the points with San Diego State in this title game rematch.

Pick: San Diego State +10.5 (-110)
