Darrion Trammell recorded 21 points (9-16 FG, 3-5 3Pt), five rebounds and two steals across 30 minutes during Friday's 71-64 win over Alabama. Trammell led the Aztecs in scoring in their Sweet 16 win over No. 1 Alabama. His 21 points also tied a season-high. The senior guard is averaging 13.0 points, 3.7 rebounds, 1.0 assists and 1.0 steals in 26.0 minutes across his three NCAA Tournament games.

Ryan Kalkbrenner notched 22 points (9-12 FG, 4-4 FT), five rebounds, two assists and one block across 34 minutes during Friday's 86-75 win over Princeton. The center led the Bluejays in scoring with 22 points in Friday's Sweet 16 win over Princeton.

Creighton vs. San Diego State CBB Prediction:
The Aztecs have covered in five straight games overall, are 13-3-2 against the number in their last 18 games when facing an opponent with a winning record and are 12-3-2 against the number in their last 17 games when taking on a foe that has a winning percentage above .600. San Diego State is also 7-3 at the betting window in its last 10 NCAA tournament games, is 5-0 against the number in its last five games coming off a win and has cashed in all four of its last four games following an ATS victory. The Aztecs will get knocked for being in the Mountain West and not having the most efficient offense, but that offense has been good enough to get them to this point and I see at least one more upset in SDS’ near future.
CBB BETTING PREDICTION: SAN DIEGO STATE AZTECS +2.5
