SEC Basketball: Texas A&M Aggies Preview, 2014 NCAA Tournament Chances
The Texas A&M Aggies will enter conference play on the back of 9-4 record that, while it looks good on paper, shouldn’t give them much hope going forward in the SEC or in the pursuit of a 2014 NCAA Tournament berth. With one of the weakest non-conference schedules of any team from a major conference, they lost against every decent team that they played.
Their most impressive win was against the Houston Cougars, but next to that their wins are all but meaningless on an NCAA Tournament resume.
The Aggies only have one player averaging more than 10 points a game, Kourtney Roberson, and their lack of scoring since the departure of Elston Turner is causing them major problems. Alex Caruso is having an alright season, but the lack of talent all over the floor for Texas A&M is going to prevent them from any success in the SEC.
With SEC play starting in their opener against the 2014 NCAA Tournament sleeper and NIT favorite Arkansas Razorbacks, the Aggies shouldn’t expect to win many games. There are too many teams with 2014 NCAA Tournament-ready talent in the conference for Texas A&M to consistently win.
Although I think they are a better all-around team than the Georgia Bulldogs, expect Texas A&M to be one of the bottom-feeders in the SEC. The Aggies will struggle throughout SEC play and finish the season with a losing record because they just lack the talent of other teams in the SEC. Can Johnny Manziel play basketball too?
