Watch the Aztecs take on UConn in Round 3 of the NCAA men's basketball tournament on CBS 8 Thursday, March 24 starting at 4:15 p.m.

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - San Diego State University's men's basketball team will play the University of Connecticut Thursday to see which team will make the "Elite 8" in this year's NCAA basketball tournament.

The Aztecs are working on their best season ever, with a record of 34 wins and 2 losses.

San Diego State is scheduled to play the University of Connecticut at the Honda Center in Anaheim at 4:15 p.m. It will be the first West Regional semifinal game in the tournament.

At about 6:45 p.m., Duke University will face the University of Arizona in the second regional semifinal game. The winners of both games will move on to play Saturday at the Honda Center with a berth in the tournament's "Final Four" at stake.

This is the second consecutive season the Aztecs have reached the NCAA tournament - a school first - and the seventh time overall. But, the Aztecs had never won a game in the tournament until this year.

The Aztecs survived a scare in their last round of tournament play last Saturday, beating Temple University 71-64 in double overtime to make it to the "Sweet 16."
