USD is the real deal in San Diego college sports

Has the University of San Diego surpassed San Diego State in athletics, or what?

Now we have both the men’s and women’s basketball teams from USD as automatic qualifiers for their respective NCAA Tournaments.

Put that on top of the fact that USD hosted an NCAA Regional last year in baseball – at Tony Gwynn Stadium, no less, on the SDSU campus – and it tells you who has the real college sports program in San Diego.

Sure, the Toreros may have benefited from playing on their home court at Jenny Craig Pavilion in the West Coast Conference Tournament for both men and women.

So what? USD beat Gonzaga in each final … and the Toreros’ men and women are both in the NCAAs.

Try that for size, SDSU.

So what do the Aztecs have in basketball?

They have a men’s team ranked No. 4 and women’s squad ranked No. 6 going into this week’s Mountain West Conference Tournament in Las Vegas.

The men have little chance of winning and advancing to the NCAAs … the women even have less of a chance than that.

And to think that people have considered USD the other school in local college sports for so long!
