What to Know
The San Jose State Spartans haven't won a game against the #20 San Diego State Aztecs since Feb. 7 of 2017, but they'll be looking to end the drought Friday. SJSU and the Aztecs are set to clash at 9:30 p.m. ET March 10 at Thomas & Mack Center in the third round of the Mountain West Conference Tournament. The two teams each escaped (but just barely!) with wins against their previous opponents.
The Spartans came out on top in a nail-biter against the Nevada Wolf Pack on Thursday, sneaking past 81-77. SJSU's guard Omari Moore did his thing and dropped a double-double on 26 points and ten dimes.
Speaking of close games: San Diego State earned some postseason bragging rights after a successful outing on Thursday. They had just enough and edged out the Colorado State Rams 64-61. The top scorer for San Diego State was guard Lamont Butler (16 points).
SJSU is expected to lose this next one by 8.5. They might be worth taking a chance on against the spread, however, as they are currently on a four-game streak of ATS wins.
With both teams having displayed their playoff mettle, spectators can expect a high-quality contest. Check back with CBS Sports for more details during and after the game.
