San Diego State University Stuns No. 1 Alabama

SDSU will be making their first appearance in the Elite Eight folliowing a shock upset win over No. 1 seed Alabama in the NCAA Men's College Basketball Tournament.  The Aztecs won 71-64.

"San Diego State is a very good team," Crimson Tide coach Nate Oats said. "When you get to the Sweet 16, you know all the teams are good at this point. You know, they're tough, physical, veteran group. It's a huge accomplishment to get to the Sweet 16."

Darrion Trammell led the way for the Aztecs with  21 points.

SDSU entered the tournament with the nation’s 6th best defense.  They held Alabama star Brandon Miller scoreless for just over the first 12 minutes of the game.
