LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Creighton and San Diego State have dreamed of being in this situation for years. And it’s not the first time each team has stood in the other’s way. The sixth-seeded Bluejays and the fifth-seeded Aztecs are each seeking their first Final Four when they meet in Sunday’s South Region final. Last year, they met much earlier in the NCAA Tournament. Creighton won 72-69 in overtime in the first round. Bluejays coach Greg McDermott says he's certain the Aztecs have been looking forward to the rematch. The veteran-laden Aztecs are the first Mountain West Conference team to reach a regional final and believe they have more to prove after ousting top overall seed Alabama.
