SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) - For those who don't remember San Diego State's last appearance on the March Madness stage, the Aztecs say ''Thank You.''
It was ugly: An 81-71 loss to upstart Florida Gulf Coast that made ''Dunk City'' a national sensation and sent San Diego State back to the drawing board - and back there right away.
The Aztecs (29-4) lost four key players off that team, including Jamaal Franklin to the NBA. But the hard work, combined with coach Steve Fisher's innate sense for keeping his program moving forward, helped San Diego State win the Mountain West regular-season title and land back in the tournament again.
The fourth-seeded Aztecs make their fifth straight NCAA appearance Thursday in a West region game against No. 13 New Mexico State (26-9).
