Projected seed: 5

San Diego State has pieced together a formidable season, highlighted by a big win on the road against a powerhouse Gonzaga team and solid victories against notable conference rivals such as New Mexico, Nevada, and Boise State. They've also made their case with respectable defensive metrics, anchored by their consistently tough defensive play. Though the squad stumbled against UNLV and Boise State, their ability to bounce back in rematches, especially in the heated environment of conference play, speaks to their resilience and adaptability. Their propensity to handle business against lesser-ranked opposition, only faltering a few times in matchups which might be considered trap games, suggests they have the focus and discipline necessary for the big dance. With a few blemishes against stronger opponents like BYU and Grand Canyon, San Diego State's performance throughout the season does, however, present a level of volatility that could turn heads or break hearts come tournament time.
