After going an uninspiring 8-5 against a relatively soft non-conference schedule, the Aggies have been one of the surprising stories of college basketball, finishing the regular season at 23-8. That includes going 15-3 in conference play and finishing just one game behind conference champion Alabama. In recognition of this great season, Buzz Williams was named SEC Co-Coach of the Year, and guards Wade Taylor IV and Tyrece Radford were both names to the All-SEC Team.
A&M will look to continue their magical year in the SEC Tournament beginning Friday night, and then on to the NCAA Tournament, with the first round starting next Thursday, March 16.
