Texas A&M Selected as No. 7 Seed in NCAA Tournament


The Rams are 7-9 all-time in the NCAA Tournament. The Friars nearly knocked off Villanova in the Big East Tournament title game, while the Aggies fell to Alabama in the second round of the SEC Tournament.

This season marks the 13th consecutive NCAA Tournament that the Aggies have qualified for, making them one of only eight teams to have accomplished that feat.

The last time the Aggies hosted was the 2016 tournament in which A&M defeated 13-seed Missouri State before losing to fifth-seeded Florida State in the second round.

Unranked PC (21-13), which lost to Villanova in overtime in the Big East Championship game Saturday in NY, drew the No. 10 spot in the Midwest Regional and will face No. 7 Texas A&M (20-12) Friday at Charlotte, N.C. The team is set to play in the First Round in Charlotte, N.C. on Friday, March 16 against Texas A&M at 12:15 p.m. on CBS.

Going to be interesting to see where these two teams land come NCAA Tourney time.

On the season, Texas A&M basketball averages 75.0 points, 41.3 rebounds and 15.5 assists per game. That is the home court of the Aggies.

The amount of conference foes that made the Tournament definitely helped A&M's RPI this season, as a 9-9 league record would have likely kept the Aggies out of the Field of 64 in previous years. "Thirteen straight NCAA Tournaments".
