Game time for No. 9-seed Texas A&M's round of 32 matchup vs. No. 1-seed Houston has been announced

Texas A&M is on to the round of 32 in the 2024 NCAA Tournament after thoroughly defeating Nebraska 98-83 on Friday night. However, it isn't any easier here. The Aggies will now face No. 1-seed Houston on Sunday night. The Cougars are coming off a 40-point victory over Longwood in round one.

It's been a wild ride for the Aggies thus far, who, just a month ago, were on the cusp of missing out on the big dance after enduring a miserable five-game losing streak, but after the emergence of junior guard Manny Obaseki, who has now scored nearly 130 points in his A&M's last eight games, including 22 points against the Cornhuskers.

Joining his brilliance, fellow star junior guard Wade Taylor IV led the game with 25 points, including shooting 7-10 from 3-point range. In comparison, senior guard Tyrece Radford netted an efficient 20 points and 10 rebounds on the night while consistently attacking the basket at will.

Shooting an insane 56.5% (13-23) from deep, this type of elite shooting performance won't happen tonight, especially against the No. 1-scoring defense in the country, as the Cougars limit opponents to an average of 56.7 points per game.

Hey, this is March, when anything can happen, so buckle up and make your plans now, as Texas A&M vs. Houston is set for 7:40 p.m. CT. and will air on TNT on Sunday, March 24.
