Texas A&M has hit a skid at the worst possible time with the Aggies’ NCAA Tournament outlook suddenly hanging by a thread.

Just two weeks ago, A&M was riding high after a top-10 upset of Tennessee. Unfortunately, that win was followed up by a 3-game losing streak.

Now, Texas A&M is just 15-11 overall with 5 games left to play, including a pair of ranked matchups against Tennessee and South Carolina. Those games present key opportunities for the Aggies, but they also loom as potential roadblocks.

Entering the weekend, ESPN’s Joe Lunardi updated his latest bracketology outlook, and the Aggies are in an uncomfortable position. Texas A&M is squarely on the bubble and is Lunardi’s “last team in” at this point in the season. Wake Forest and Ole Miss would be the first teams out in that scenario, setting up a significant regular-season finale between the Aggies and Rebels on March 9.

As for the rest of the SEC, Alabama holds a 1-game lead in the standings ahead of Tennessee. South Carolina and Auburn are just two games back with Florida and Kentucky still alive with 5 games to play. Fans can track the finish to the season and the SEC Basketball Tournament odds via SDS’s sports betting apps.

If A&M is able to rally with some wins — particularly against Tennessee or South Carolina — the Aggies should wind up just fine when March Madness rolls around. Unfortunately, extending the current 3-game skid could cement the program as NIT-bound at the end of the season.
