Texas A&M Basketball is currently on a roll, with a 4-0 record to start the season. Their recent road wins over Ohio State and SMU have showcased their poise and toughness in close games. Their latest victory over Oral Roberts has further solidified their impressive start.
Next up for the team is the ESPN Invitational Tournament in Orlando, Florida, where they will face off against Penn State in a rematch of last year’s NCAA Tournament opening-round loss. Head coach Buzz Williams and his determined squad are eager to avenge that defeat and make their mark in the tournament.
In the latest USA TODAY Sports Coaches Poll, Texas A&M has risen two spots to No. 13, proving that their strong start has caught the attention of voters. They remain undefeated heading into the ESPN Invitational Tournament, positioning themselves as a force to be reckoned with in college basketball. As the second highest-ranked SEC program behind Tennessee at No. 8, they are certainly making noise in the conference early on.
Other SEC teams in the top 25 include Alabama at No. 22, Kentucky at No. 16, and Mississippi State, who has entered the rankings for the first time this year with a 5-0 record. Arkansas, Auburn, and South Carolina also received votes in the poll, showing just how strong the conference is so far this season.
