Texas A&M Basketball continues to drop in ESPN’s newest bracketology update

The same ole story regarding Texas A&M Basketball’s frustrating lack of consistency during SEC play has continued as we enter the all-important February slate, as the Aggies get a week off before hosting Florida at home on Saturday afternoon.

After falling to Ole Miss 71-68 on Saturday night, Texas A&M’s inability to close the game after leading by as much as seven points late in the second half has raised even more questions regarding the Aggies’ lack of offensive tackle outside of star point guard Wade Taylor IV, who, yet again lived up to his SEC Preseason SEC Player of the Year billing with 30 points on the night.

Sitting at 3-4 in conference play, plenty of opportunities to get back on track are still in front of head coach Buzz Williams’s resilient squad, but according to ESPN’s Joe Lunardi, the recent loss to the Rebels has now moved the Aggies down a peg, all the way to the “Last Four Byes” joining Texas, Memphis and Providence.

A&M’s four Quad 1 victories hold more importance than anything else regarding the team’s tournament chances. Still, for Lunardi to show more confidence in the Aggies’ resume, it’s time for a midseason run to begin against the Gators this weekend.

Texas A&M will host Florida inside Reed Arena on Saturday, Feb. 3. The game will air at 3:00 p.m. CT. and will air on ESPN2.
