Texas A&M guards Wade Taylor IV, Manny Obaseki & Tyrece Radford reflect on Nebraska win in March Madness

Texas A&M's tremendous trio of guards, juniors Wade Taylor IV & Manny Obaseki, and senior Tyrece “Boots” Radford led the No. 9 Aggies to a dominant victory against No. 8 Nebraska in the first round of the NCAA Tournament on Friday night in Memphis.

Taylor tallied a game-high 25 points on 8-of-14 field goal attempts & 7-of-10 from 3-point range with 5 assists.

"It's the consistency in our work. We work every day the same way no matter if we have a good game or a bad game," Taylor explained. "My teammates have been phenomenal on both ends. I feel like the circle and camaraderie that we have together plays a huge part on how we come out and perform each night, so credit to them."

Obaseki was unconscious in the final 5:20 of the first half, scoring 16 straight points to give the Aggies a 14-point halftime lead. He finished with 22 points on 8-of-17 shots, 3-of-5 from downtown & 3-of-5 from the free-throw line.

"I'm just thankful to my coaches and teammates for trusting in me," Obaseki said. "They gave me the ball and allowed me to do my thing. I knew I had a mismatch all night and they allowed me to take advantage of that."

Radford recorded a double-double with 20 points on 8-of-17 attempts & 3-of-5 from the charity stripe with 10 rebounds (5 offensive) and 5 assists.

"I don't think we changed anything defensively, we just played with our HOH, hands on our head, because they have really good shooters and we just tried to prevent them from going off or getting hot," Radford recalled. "We knew they were a good team that was going to make a couple of shots but all credit goes to the team just by staying in it."
