Good afternoon, college basketball fanatics and welcome to another year of exciting March Madness basketball.

My name is Jay Brown and I'm a Featured Columnist here at Bleacher Report. I will be with you this afternoon providing play-by-play action and analysis of the No. 15 Northern Colorado Bears vs. No. 2 San Diego State Aztecs.

The San Diego State Aztecs are coming off their best season in school history, with a second consecutive Mountain West Conference title, and a second straight NCAA tournament berth. The Aztecs will be looking to notch their first win in NCAA tournament play having been bounced from the first round last year again Tennessee.

San Diego State will need to continue playing with the same intensity that fans saw when the Aztecs took down BYU in the Mountain West Conference finals.

The Northern Colorado Bears, who are in their first trip to the NCAA tournament in school history, earned their automatic bid to the NCAA tournament by winning the Big Sky Conference. The Bears will be looking to upset the Aztecs and continue their hopes of a National Championship.

Stick around and enjoy the action from first tip to final buzzer.
