San Diego State Aztec Notes
Matt Bradley finished with 21 points (5-12 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 7-9 FT), six rebounds and two assists in 32 minutes during Saturday’s 72-71 win over Florida Atlantic. Bradley averaged just 6.0 ppg over SDSU’s previous three tournament games, including a 1-for-8 shooting effort in the Elite Eight against Creighton. As the team’s leading scorer in the regular season (12.7 ppg), Bradley bounced back in a big way here, as he was the Aztecs’ only starter in double figures. If San Diego State hopes to bring back the title, he will need to try again in Monday’s national championship game against UConn.
UConn Huskies Notes
Jordan Hawkins Had 13 points (3-8 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 4-5 FT), three rebounds and one block in 25 minutes in Saturday’s 72-59 win over Miami (FL). Despite dealing with an illness in the week leading up to the Final Four, Hawkins managed to start, though he saw minutes below his season and NCAA tournament averages. Through five NCAA Tournament games, the sophomore guard is averaging 16.4 ppg while also shooting 50 percent from long range. With UConn looking unstoppable, the Huskies will now face their toughest defensive game of the tournament on Monday against SDSU for the national title.
