Good week to be an Aztec


While we are always proud to be Aztecs, nothing brings the community together more than sports. And these last couple weeks have created a buzz and atmosphere on campus like never before.

The women’s basketball team hosted, and won, a first round NCAA Tournament game over DePaul before being knocked out by perennial powerhouse Stanford.

The men’s team, after being snubbed by the NCAA selection committee, showed them what they are missing by pummeling Weber State, Kansas State and then pulling out a thriller against St. Mary’s to advance to the Final Four of the NIT this week in New York City.

Hundreds of Aztecs will gather together at viewing parties around the country to cheer on their team.

And finally, pitching phenom Stephen Strasburg was featured in Yahoo Sports, ESPN (video) and Sports Illustrated. We’re tracking Stras’s amazing season here. Coach Gwynn’s boys were rewarded for their great play with a #21 ranking by Baseball America this week.
