Texas A&M Basketball interestingly positioned in CBS Sports’ newest bracket update

Texas A&M (13-8, 4-4 SEC) got back on track after escaping the red-hot Florida Gators 68-67 on Saturday afternoon, as veteran guard Tyrece Radford’s game-high 26 points included the game-winning basket in one of his more memorable and passionate performances in his Aggie career.

Looking to finally find some momentum and create a lasting win streak in conference play, every game is now of the utmost importance, starting with Wednesday’s road trip against the Missouri Tigers, who have yet to win a game in SEC play.

Looking ahead to next month’s NCAA Tournament, Texas A&M’s current positioning has been scattered across the board, remaining on the periphery in multiple brackets, including CBS Sports’ newest bracket update.

According to CBS Sports “Bracketologist” Jerry Palm, the Aggies are listed as one of eight “first four” teams during the first two days of action, positioned as an 11-seed facing the 11-seeded Michigan State Spartans. Hypothetically, with a victory over the Spartans, A&M would face 5th-seeded Dayton in Brooklyn, New York.

Aggies’ head coach Buzz Williams isn’t on the hot seat, but to continue building toward a successful future, earning a second consecutive tournament bid is absolutely vital to avoiding a significant step backward.
