Many anticipated that Alabama, the No. 1 overall seed, had the best chance to win the championship going into the Sweet 16 before March Madness began. They were one of just two teams to defeat Houston during the regular season, and they also won the SEC regular-season championship, the SEC tournament, and Texas A&M in the process. They however crushed their fans’ hopes on Friday night.

Despite having a lead of up to nine points in the second half, Alabama was unable to overcome the tenacious Aztecs, who pulled off the surprising victory, 71-64. Trammell took control as his team was on the verge of being eliminated from the NCAA Tournament and instead helped No. 5 San Diego State shock No. 1 overall seed Alabama and completely change the course of the game with about 10 minutes remaining.

Darrion expressed his happiness following the match and praised Alabama as a fierce rival with a large number of bright and elite athletes.

“Alabama is a great team, they have a lot of talented individuals. We knew it was going to be hard, but it was a dogfight. Very physical, they’re a physical team, they defended at a high level. It was just a high-level game,” he stated.

The senior guard made sure to emphasize how difficult it had been to get to where they were. The 5-foot-10 squad is confident that if they can maintain this level of play, they will be able to defeat any NCAA team in the United States.

“We feel like we can beat any team in the country. We work hard and we feel like we have the DNA of a winning team that goes far in March. We have experience, we have grit, so we feel like it’s what we’re supposed to do.”

David Velasquez, an assistant coach, also spoke highly of his abilities on the court.

The coach stated, “Darrion came here to win.”

The little monster(12) demonstrated his abilities on the largest stage and responded to those who unfairly viewed him as a teenager by displaying his prowess.
