Texas A&M Celebrates Earning At-Large Bid to NCAA Tournament

Texas A&M is making its way to the NCAA Tournament once again. This marks the second consecutive year under the guidance of Buzz Williams. The Aggies have been seeded as No. 9 in the South Region, as announced by the selection committee on Sunday evening.

The team, with a record of 20-14, secured an at-large bid. They are set to compete against Nebraska, who boasts a 23-10 record, on Friday, March 22. The game will take place at the FedEx Forum in Memphis, Tennessee.

The victor of this match will go on to play against either Houston or Longwood on Sunday, March 24. The prize at stake is a spot in the South Regional, which will be held at the American Airlines Center in Dallas.

In the final weeks of the season, Texas A&M was uncertain of their fate, teetering on the edge of selection. However, they finished the regular season with a three-game winning streak. Their performance continued to impress as they defeated Ole Miss and Kentucky in the SEC Tournament. Despite being overlooked by the selection committee two years prior, the Aggies were hopeful. Their efforts were rewarded with a No. 9 seed, allowing them to bypass the First Four In Games.

The team’s reaction to securing a spot in the NCAA Tournament for the second year in a row was filled with excitement.
