‘Once in a lifetime deal’: Texas A&M men’s coach Buzz Williams previews NCAA Tournament matchup vs. Nebraska

The Texas A&M men’s basketball team is officially going dancing in March Madness at the NCAA Tournament.

The Aggies (20-14) are the No. 9 seed in the South Region and will play new athletic director Trev Alberts‘ former school, No. 8 Nebraska, in the first round on Friday.

After the selection show, Buzz Williams was not made available to the media but the head coach spoke to 12th Man Productions about his instant reaction to the selection.

“There was such a genuine feeling by our guys,” Williams said. “So emotional, very raw, very transparent, really, really lifetime memory to be able to see that. We’re excited. We’re thankful.”

Williams also reflected on the entire journey that his team has gone on since Day 1 of the season.

“This will be week 29 since we started work the week of Labor Day. Nine weeks of work in preseason, eight weeks of work in non-conference, 10 weeks of work in the SEC, then obviously the conference tournament this past week,” Williams recalled. “To be able to keep going after all the good and bad things, we are grateful. The connectedness that our group has, our players, our coaches, support staff, it’s just been a once in a lifetime deal and something we’ll always remember.”
