The Aztecs and the Sooners both have some real problems that they need to conquer if they are going to get the job done here in the NCAA Tournament. Both played poor ball down the stretch, and both have a lot of holes that they are going to need to fill if they are going to get out of this game and potentially into next week’s action. Head Coach Lon Kruger knows that he has a team that can score quite a few points, as OU put up at least 83 in five straight games from the end of February through the beginning of March. What happened at the end of the year, though? The offense went MIA in games against TCU and Iowa State, and that’s really difficult to believe considering how bad the Horned Frogs are and how fast the Cyclones play the game. G Jamaal Franklin plays like he has a chip on his shoulder; in fact, so do all of the Aztecs. This San Diego State team is a veteran core that has been together now for quite some time. Last year’s NCAA Tournament didn’t go so well, as the team was quickly bounced by NC State in the first round. We don’t think that the Aztecs are poised for a particularly deep run in the dance, but they’ll get through this game and send the Sooners packing.
