The beloved San Diego State Aztecs 81-71 loss to the Florida Gulf Coast Eagles has students scratching their heads.
“I had them going to the Elite 8 in my bracket so (I’m) losing some money there,” said freshman Derek Stewart.
The No. 15 seeded Eagles had a dunk fest over the No. 7 Aztecs. Some SDSU students said the team didn’t seem to play cohesively.
“We were expecting them to win a blow-out. We don`t even know who Florida is,” said senior Kevin Cho. “There was just no momentum for us, you know, Florida had all the momentum.”
The buses Monday morning took Aztec players from Lindbergh Field where they flight landed after Sunday’s game. Students said the loss is disappointing but they still support their team.
“I still love wearing SDSU stuff because our team is just awesome even to make it that far,” said Jill Wirt Monday wearing her SDSU shirt. “I think everybody is already looking forward to next year. “
