The San Diego State Aztecs men’s basketball team is fresh off of a thrilling victory against Wyoming in Laramie. The win over the Cowboys all but punched their ticket for the NCAA Tournament and gave them another significant Quad-1 victory.
Then, on Tuesday, it was announced that Matt Bradley and Adam Seiko are returning for their fifth year of eligibility in the 2022-2023 season, according to San Diego State’s official release.
One. More. Year.

Bradley transferred from Cal for the 2021-2022 season and has come around in a big way as of late, including a marvelous 30-point performance to lead the Aztecs to an upset over Wyoming.
Seiko has spent his entire collegiate career in the Mesa, and bringing both of these guys will send a wide smile across head coach Brian Dutcher’s face.
Bradley’s move from Berkeley to San Diego has worked out tremendously, and he leads all Aztecs with 17.2 points per game.
The Aztecs roster for next season just got a whole lot better, and if nobody transfers out, the team includes Chad Baker-Mazara, Jaedon LeDee, Lamon Butler, Keshad Johnson, and Tahirou Diabate, along with Bradley and Seiko.
As always, San Diego State dips into the transfer portal, so more talent should be coming to Viejas Arena next season along with this impressive roster.
Nathan Mensah could also be back next season as well for a fifth year, although it remains to be seen if he decides to run it back one more year with the Aztecs.
Bradley hopped on with Jon Schaeffer shortly after and raved about San Diego State and the way the team looks for next season.
Matt Bradley on returning for another season: “I really love San Diego and I really want to graduate from San Diego State and get my degree." Also said he thinks "we'll be a really special team next year."

With the MWC Tournament just days away and Selection Sunday around the corner, Bradley, and Seiko left everybody wondering whether or not they would return for another season. Well, we have our answer.
When the Aztecs host Fresno State on Thursday in their final home game of the season, Bradley and Seiko should get a massive reception after the news that just dropped.
