NOTABLE

• The Aggies will play as a No. 7 seed for the second time in program history, the Aggies were a No. 7 in the 2011 tournament.

• Texas A&M will be making its 14th overall appearance in the NCAA Tournament ... 8 of the Aggies' 14 appearances, and 8 of their 11 NCAA wins, have come since 2006 … A&M is 11-14 all-time in the NCAA Tournament

• A&M’s NCAA Appearances (14): 1951, 1964, 1969**, 1975, 1980**, 1987, 2006*, 2007**, 2008*, 2009*, 2010*, 2011*, 2016**, 2018   (* 2nd round / ** Sweet Sixteen)

• The SEC set a new league record with eight teams in the NCAA tournament, the SEC’s eight squads trail only the ACC (9) for the most in the country. The Aggies join Tennessee (#3 seed, South Region), Auburn (#4 seed, East Region), Kentucky (#5 seed, South Region), Florida (#6 seed, East Region), Arkansas (#7 seed, East Region), Missouri (#8 seed, South Region) and Alabama (#9 seed, East Region) as the SEC's representatives in the tournament.
