March Madness: Third seed UConn Huskies take on the second seed San Diego State Aztecs in Sweet Sixteen matchup

Sweet 16: UConn Huskies (3) vs. San Diego State Aztecs (2) Thurs. March 24, 2011 7:15 p.m. EST

Coming into the 2011 NCAA Tournament, the UConn Huskies (3) were arguably the most entertaining college basketball team in the country as they had won five straight games in dramatic fashion in order to win the Big East tournament. With Jim Calhoun trying to win another NCAA title and the Huskies having one of the best all-around players in the country in high scoring guard Kemba Walker, UConn (3) looks like they have a legitimate shot of going the distance in the Big Dance.

In their first two games of the 2011 NCAA Tournament, the UConn Huskies (3) were able to make easy work of the Bucknell Bison (81-52) and get the best of the Cincinnati Bearcats (69-58), but they will have their work cut out for them on Thursday night as they will go head-to-head against the San Diego State Aztecs (2) in the Sweet 16.

Obviously, with a superstar caliber player like Kemba Walker, the UConn Huskies (3) have gotten a lot of exposure over the last month or so, but they will be facing off against a very good SDSU (2) squad that has made history for their college basketball program with every passing game. Not only is this the furthest that the Aztecs have ever gotten in the NCAA Tournament, but they are talented enough to go the distance, but will first have to get past Jim Calhoun’s squad.

As of right now, the consensus around the country is that the UConn Huskies (3) could very well be headed towards the National Championship game, but they will be slight underdogs in this game as the San Diego State Aztecs are favored at -1.5.

Take the Huskies at +1.5.
