Head Coach Billy Kennedy led the Aggies to their first Sweet 16 appearance in 9 years (previous appearances ’69, ’80, ’07), but was not able to become the first coach to reach the Elite 8. 

The Aggies were bounced from the NCAA Tournament after a tough loss to the Oklahoma Sooners. The final score was 77-63. Despite a tough ending, A&M had a very successful season. They finished with a record of 28-9, won a share of the SEC Championship, and accomplished one of the biggest comebacks in tournament history against Northern Iowa.
