SPOKANE, Wash. M.J. Stewart Buccaneers Jersey . -- Xavier Thames dropped in 3s from deep, finessed floaters in the lane and carried San Diego State the way he did all season as the Mountain West player of the year. Thames would not let North Dakota State become this years version of Florida Gulf Coast by sending the Aztecs home in the third round of the NCAA tournament. Thames scored 30 points, and fourth-seeded San Diego State reached the round of 16 for the second time in school history, ending the run of No. 12 seed North Dakota State 63-44 on Saturday. The Aztecs (31-4) now get to make the short drive up the interstate to Anaheim, Calif., where they will face either No. 1 seed Arizona or eighth-seeded Gonzaga in the West Regional semifinals on Thursday. Thames, who was 9 of 19 from the field, had five assists and ended the comeback hopes of the Bison with a six-point spurt late in the second half that pushed the Aztecs lead to 12. He finished one shy of his career-high in points. Dwayne Polee II was the only other San Diego State player in double figures with 15, but the Aztecs didnt need a ton of scoring with Thames carrying the load and another defensive performance that suffocated the best shooting team in the country. Kory Brown led the Bison (26-7) with 13 points, but it was the struggles of leading scorer Taylor Braun that had North Dakota State trying to play catch up. Braun missed nine straight shots during one stretch. Sometimes he was guarded by Thames. Other times it was J.J. OBrien taking a turn on the Summit League player of the year. Braun finished 2-of-14 shooting and just seven points. North Dakota State shot 50.9 per cent for the season to lead the country, but could only make 31.9 per cent against the Aztecs. The 44 points were a season-low for the Bison, the previous low being 56 in a win over Western Illinois. North Dakota State was one of three No. 12 seeds to help create another manic March by upsetting No. 5 seed Oklahoma 80-75 in overtime in the second round on Thursday. They had the players and the personality to become this years version of FGCU -- just minus all those dunks. Thames wasnt going to allow that to happen. The memories were still fresh of the flight home last year after San Diego State become one of those teams FGCU dunked all over on its way to an unforgettable March run. Thames did it all for the Aztecs in the first half. He was responsible for 23 of San Diego States 30 points, scoring 16 and assisting on another three baskets. He started the second half with a floater in the lane, a shot he repeated minutes later. He then found Polee on the wing for a 3 and the Aztecs lead was back to 40-30 after a quick North Dakota State spurt had trimmed the deficit to five. Braun finally got a shot to fall when he spun in a reverse layup with 12:11 left, his first field goal in nearly 27 minutes of game time. By that point, the Bison were down eight and could never get much closer. Braun finished the first half 1-of-10 shooting and equally quiet was Lawrence Alexander. The guard who hit all the big shots against Oklahoma finished with three points after scoring 28 against the Sooners.

Steve has built a solid reputation throughout the years - first as a hockey player, then as an NHL general manager and now as a scout.NASHVILLE -- Barry Trotz hopes his Predators can learn from an ugly win. Patric Hornqvist scored the winner on a power play 5:13 into the third period to lift Nashville to a 4-3 win over the Florida Panthers on Tuesday night. Mike Fisher, Shea Weber, and Craig Smith each had a goal and an assist for Nashville, which has won three of four. "It was a frustrating game," Trotz said. "I would probably say that game we were probably the most sloppy weve been in all the games this year; not real detailed, making poor judgment errors all over the ice, just not real sharp tonight. But we found a way to win and thats part of learning to win." Jonathan Juberdeau, Marcel Goc, and Matt Gilroy scored for Florida. The Panthers have lost five of their last six. With the game tied 2-2 after two periods, Smith and Hornqvist scored early in the third period for the Predators. Florida goaltender Jacob Markstrom stopped a shot by Gabriel Bourque, but Smith went to the net and was able to fight through traffic and poke the rebound in for his first goal of the season at 1:22. "I just crashed the net," Smith said. "I just went to the net. Weve been harping all camp and through the beginning of the season here, going to the net hard. I did that and I was rewarded." Less than four minutes later, Hornqvist struck on the power play with a nice individual move from the right side. "Thats the difference in a hockey game," Florida coach Kevin Dineen said. "It is something that were trying to take out, those mistakes, and we had a tough backcheck and a goal that shouldnt get scored. I dont fault the compete effort; I think thats something that weve talked too much about, but that certainly is paart of our game and has to be part of our identity every night to give ourselves a chance. M.J. Stewart Jersey. " Weber scored the games first goal at 9:23 of the opening period. Fisher had the puck on the right side and slid a pass to Weber at the centre of the blue line. The Nashville captain one-timed the puck by Markstrom for his first goal of the season. "We made it hard on ourselves tonight," Weber said. "We didnt play very well, we just found a way to win though. Thats what you need to do sometimes." Florida tied the game at 1 early in the second period when Huberdeau stickhandled through the Nashville defence before beating Predators goaltender Pekka Rinne with a wrist shot. The 2013 Calder Trophy winner has three goals in his last four games. Fisher gave Nashville the lead again at 12:48 of the second, but former Predator Marcel Goc tied it less than a minute later, beating Rinne from the right side in close. "It wasnt the start to the third that we wanted to have; they scored two in the first five minutes," Goc said. "Overall, I think it was a tight game; it was pretty even." Fisher and Hornqvist are the only Predators with more than one goal on the season. Gilroy drew the Panthers within one at 11:37 of the third, but they could not forge their third tie of the game. NOTES: After allowing the first goal in their first four games, Nashville has scored first in consecutive games. ...
