Where is the UConn vs San Diego State NCAA Tournament championship in 2023?
- Location: NRG Stadium (Houston, Texas)
The national championship contest this year will be held at NRG Stadium, home of the Houston Texans of the NFL.
Houston held the Final Four for the last time in 2016. That tournament was capped off by the legendary Villanova buzzer-beater in the title game against North Carolina.
It is also a familiar venue for the UConn men’s basketball squad. When the site was known as Reliant Stadium, the Huskies won a championship in 2011 by defeating Butler, 53-41. They’ll have an opportunity to go two for two 12 years later.
Also during that championship run, UConn defeated San Diego State due to the efforts of Kemba Walker, who led the Huskies to a Sweet 16 victory over Kawhi Leonard.
UConn vs San Diego State Preview:
It’s time for one more song and performance. The party is about to come to a close, with the curtains falling on another NCAA Tournament.
March Madness was swiftly moved to April, setting up a fitting end to a tournament that has been anything but predictable. While the blue bloods and fans across the nation watched from their couches at home, Cinderella’s slipper fit perfectly until the final weekend.
In the end, No. 4 UConn will face No. 5 San Diego State for an opportunity to bring home a trophy. The Huskies have relied heavily on forward Adama Sanogo throughout the competition. The sophomore has three double-doubles and has scored at least 20 points in three of UConn’s five games. He has proven to be a thorn in the side of the competition, and he has done so while fasting for Ramadan.
To keep this contest close, the Aztecs will need to put in another strong defensive effort. UConn has scored just under 79 points per game, a territory rarely visited by San Diego State. Brian Dutcher’s squad has been able to hang with high-scoring teams long enough to win with late-game execution.
UConn has never lost a national championship tournament, going 4-0 in the process. San Diego State will be making their debut.
