NCAA Tournament Predictions -- New Mexico State vs. San Diego State : Aztecs Look to Stand Tall in Land of the Giants

At any given time on the floor, they will have forwards who stand 6' 10" and 6' 9", and that's not all. The guy in the middle is 7' 5" Sim Bhullar, a Canadian import who rejects a ton of shots.

San Diego State, which is ranked 11th in the country by the USA Today coaches poll, is a seven-point favorite in the game, and Final Score Network is finalizing its NCAA Tournament prediction on this contest for customers throughout the world.

Steve Fisher would love to get back the Final Four. If you recall, he has coached Michigan to a national title, and was also at the helm of the "Fab Five" of freshmen (including Chris Webber and Jalen Rose) who made it to the national final. At San Diego State he has a very disciplined, defensive-oriented team, with a star offensive player in Xavier Thames, who was player of the year in the Mountain West. The Aztecs are not necessarily an explosive shooting club, and they probably do their best work in transition. Basketball bettors have come to realize that they will need the contributions of St. John's transfer Dwayne Polee off the bench if they are going to go far in this tournament.

Also, if they play a slowdown game in the half-court they are going to be in trouble, because that is where the size of the Aggies will come into play. The big people, especially Bhullar, are going to have a hard time running up and down the court for the better part of 40 minutes. In fact, don't be surprised if Bhullar's minutes are limited here. Thames will have a heck of a time dealing with Daniel Mullings, New Mexico State's star backcourt man, but we also must recognize that Mullings that does not have a lot of touch from long range.

San Diego State was stunned in the Mountain West tournament when it lost its second out of three games against New Mexico. By the way, the Aggies defeated New Mexico in Albuquerque this season, and that, along with the fact that Marvin Menzies, the New Mexico State coach, is Fisher's former assistant, should assure basketball bettors that the Aztecs will not be looking past this opponent.
