BRACKETOLOGY: Texas A&M Aggie basketball and NCAA bubble team

Texas A&M basketball entered the 2021-22 season quite low. After the SEC was shortened in a season shortened by a 2:10 pandemic season in the 2020-2021 season and a number of transfers made the roster virtually unrecognizable, few had high expectations that head coach Buzz Williams would enter their third season. in College Station. But as the season unfolds, these expectations begin to change, and although there is still a LOT of basketball to play, the dynamics seem to be building around this Aggie basketball team for the first time in a long time.

The Ags are currently 14-2 in the season and 3-0 in the SEC, with their only losses coming with Wisconsin and the TCU in neutral matches. And in the latest Bracketology, released by ESPN’s Joe Lunardi on Friday, Texas A&M is now listed in the “First Four Out” category, right at the top of the field for the NCAA.

A&M first appeared at Bracketology earlier this week in the “Next Four Out” section, but moved up after a convincing Ole Miss win on Tuesday night.

While this is by no means the March Madness or Crash season for the Aggies, holding a tournament for the first time since 2018 would be a huge sign of progress for the program under Buzz Williams. And even if they didn’t reach Tourney, NIT would be considered a successful season.

The Aggies will try to continue to accumulate conference wins as they travel to Colombia on Saturday to face the Missouri Tigers (7-8 (1-2)). The game ends at 2:30 p.m. and will air on the SEC Network.
