The No. 1 Duke Blue Devils will look to become the second top seed to advance to the Sweet 16 when they face the No. 8 San Diego State Aztecs in Charlotte at approximately 2:40 p.m. ET.
The top team in the South Region had little trouble getting past the No. 16 Robert Morris Colonials on Friday night, while the Aztecs had to fight for 40 minutes in order to fend off the No. 9 St. John's Red Storm.
A win would hand Duke its second trip to the regional semifinal in four years. It last made a trip to the second weekend of the NCAA men's basketball tournament in 2013 thanks to wins over Albany and Creighton.
San Diego State, which has won at least one NCAA tournament game in three of the last four years, has enjoyed the same recent success as its Sunday foe from the ACC.
The victorious team will earn a trip to Houston, where the No. 5 Utah Utes await in the Sweet 16.
Our live coverage of this round-of-32 clash begins 10 minutes before the first tip with starting lineups and pregame buildup.
