This week is a big week for Jackrabbit fans. And all of the fun will kick off Thursday night in Auburn Hills, Michigan where the men will take on the University of Michigan Wolverines. And saying these fans are excited would be an understatement.
Last year, the men made it to the NCAA D-1 tourney, after losing in the first round, they made it a point to come back again. This year, many say the Jacks could be serving up quite an upset for the Wolverines.
When it comes to being a Jackrabbit fan, loading up on a bus and driving for more than 12 hours is just part of supporting your team.
For fan Joe Schulte, after the Jacks made it to the NCAA Division-One Tournament last year, he knew he had to be at the next one.
"I told my wife that if they make it next year, we need to go. So, I had to stay true to that so when they made it. I knew right away that we had to go," Schulte said.
While there will be many first timers like Schulte, there are also veterans making their way out for a fifth time.
"Well I don't miss them. We have been to three of the women's and then we were in Albuquerque last year. You can't miss it when you start going you find out how wonderful it is," fan Keith Jensen said.
Both fans are excited to see their team take on the Wolverines and they are hoping this year will be better than ever.
"A victory, it should be a lot of fun just watching the kids play one more chance or a couple of more chances to see them play. It's been a heck of a ride so far and it should be a lot of fun," Schulte said.
"We know we will have a very good game. Win or lose, we are proud to be there," Jensen said.
Jensen says the best way he can explain how he hopes this game will end up is through the words of someone else.
"I'm always excited as a Jackrabbits fan. As Larry King said on twitter by the way 'If you are looking for an upset in this tournament watch SDSU and I'm not kidding,'" Jensen said.
Senor point guard Nate Wolters is one of the top point guards in the nation and his team praises him for being a great leader and teammate.
But, the Wolverines have their own Nate Wolters as well. His name is Trey Burke and he's also a top point guard in the nation.
They will be able to show what they are made of Thursday beginning at 6 p.m. central time and if you couldn't make it to Michigan don't worry, you can get in on all the fun on our NCAA Tournament page.
