TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

It is game day, let the March Madness continue as the University of Arizona Wildcats Men's Basketball hits the court tonight.

The Wildcats are the number one seed in the west and will be taking on the number four seed San Diego State University, in a Sweet Sixteen match up. The winner of this game will advance to the Elite Eight. 

The Aztecs from the Mountain West Conference average about 70 points a game, while the Wildcats average about 73 points a game.  This will be the second time the two teams meet this season. 

Back in November 2013, Arizona beat Sand Diego State 69 to 60, in San Diego.  In that game Arizona had a 14 point lead, but the Aztecs rallied back, so the match-up today should be a good one.

Tip off for the game at the Honda Center is 7:20 p.m. Tucson time and it will air on TBS. 

For those who will not be able to watch it, there is an Arizona Game Day App.  It is expected to have live game scores and audio from the game, it is available for both Android and Apple devices.

Another option is following the Tucson News Now sports team on Twitter (@DAlamedaKOLD; @Cooney247; @Davi0064KellyTNN) and Facebook, they will have updates before tip-off, during the game and after the game.
