San Diego State earned an at-large bid to the NCAA tournament on Sunday and is the No. 7 seed in the South Region. The Aztecs will face 10th-seeded Oklahoma in Philadelphia, Pa., on Friday, March 22. Game time and television details will be finalized later.

SDSU (22-10; 9-7 Mountain West) will make its school-record fourth consecutive NCAA tournament appearance this week against a Sooner side that posted a 20-11 record overall and an 11-7 mark in the Big 12. The winner will face the victor of the No. 2 Georgetown-No. 15 Florida Gulf Coast game on Sunday, March 24.

San Diego State will be making its ninth Division I NCAA tournament appearance and sixth under head coach Steve Fisher. This year's invitation also marks the eighth straight postseason berth for the Aztecs and the 10th under Fisher. The Scarlet and Black are one of 17 squads to advance to the NCAA tournament four consecutive years.

SDSU will see a familiar face on the Oklahoma sideline as it is led by second-year head coach Lon Kruger. Prior to his arrival in Norman, Kruger was at the helm of the UNLV program for seven seasons. During Kruger's time in Las Vegas, Fisher and the Aztecs were 13-5 against him and won five straight before Kruger relocated to OU.
