SDSU alum Mayor Jerry Sanders today announced that he is declaring Thursday, March 18, “Red & Black Day” in San Diego to honor the San Diego State University Aztecs’ first-round NCAA tournament games.
SDSU’s women’s and men’s basketball teams both won their respective Mountain West Conference tournament championships in Las Vegas last weekend, gaining each a slot in the NCAA “March Madness” basketball tournament.
The men’s first game will be on Thursday at 6:45 p.m. vs. the University of Tennessee Volunteers in Providence, RI. The women will match up against the University of Texas Longhorns on Sunday at 4 p.m.
“With about 100,000 SDSU alumni in San Diego, seeing our teams in the national tournament is a huge source of local pride,” Sanders said. “We want the teams to know that all of San Diego is rooting them on to victory.”
