Texas A&M basketball to the Final Four? ESPN analyst makes bold prediction
Texas A&M basketball is hoping to make a deep run in the NCAA Tournament this March.
The Aggies received a No. 7 seed from the selection committee, but ESPN’s Marty Smith is a big believer in Buzz Williams’ team.
Smith is predicting Texas A&M to reach the Final Four alongside Alabama, Duke and UConn. Here are his predictions:

As a No. 7 seed, Texas A&M would make history if it reaches the Final Four. A No. 7 seed has reached the Final Four 3 times previously, although all of those instances have come since 2014. South Carolina (2017), Michigan State (2015) and UConn (2014) are the previous No. 7 seeds who have reached the semifinals.
It would be significant program history, as well. The Aggies have never made it beyond the Sweet 16. They’ve been to that round 6 times, including as recently as 2018, but have never been to the Elite Eight.
This will be Texas A&M’s 1st NCAA Tournament appearance since 2018. This is Buzz Williams’ 4th season in College Station.
Texas A&M will face Penn State in the 1st round on Thursday night. Tipoff is at 9:55 p.m. ET.

Wow, with 7 minutes to go in the game and the Aggies down 23, it looks like they should have spent less time whining about their seed and more time getting ready to play.
For the most part, good showing by the SEC today
