The Aztecs enter the NCAA Tournament with a record of 31 wins and 29 losses. The Aztecs started off the Mountain West Conference (MWC) Tournament with a big 15 to 6 victory over Air Force. The next day the Aztecs lost 6 to 3 against UNLV. The Aztecs had their backs against the wall as the MWC Tournament is a two-game elimination series. The Aztecs then went on to defeat Fresno State on their own turf by a score of 4 to 0 and defeated UNLV by a score of 6 to 2. The Aztecs then went up against the No.1 seed and tournament favorite New Mexico and won by a score of 8 to 7 to force a second Championship game. The Aztecs upset the University of New Mexico in the MWC Tournament Championship game this past Sunday by a score of 9 to 4.

The victory by the Aztecs in the MWC Tournament Championship game this past Sunday gave the Aztecs their second NCAA birth under head coach Tony Gwynn. The last time the Aztecs made tournament play they had the best pitcher in school history Stephen Strasbourg on the squad (2008-2009 season).
