  • Oklahoma Sooners point guard Trae Young

Just over two year later, he's accomplished one of his goals by helping the Tigers to their first NCAA Tournament bid in 15 years, ending the third-longest drought among Power 5 schools.

The Aggies are in their 24th all-time NCAA Tournament and made the Final Four once, in 1970.

March Madness will take the Tigers to San Diego to play against New Mexico State on Friday.

Five Tigers are averaging double figures, including senior Donte Grantham who has been out for the season following a knee injury which he suffered in the Tigers' Jan. 20 win against Notre Dame. The Midwest Region will have its Sweet Sixteen games played in Omaha, Nebraska.

Clemson has now been invited to the NCAA Tournament on 12 occasions with a high point occurring in 1980 (Elite Eight). "To be in the top four seeds in this bracket is a tremendous statement for the regular-season champions".

The Tigers are led in scoring by Reed with a 15.9 average.

Instead, the Tigers set a program record with 11 regular-season wins in ACC play and then won their tournament opener 90-82 over Boston College to reach the semifinals for the first time since 2011.

NMSU punched their ticket to the dance with a 72-58 win over Grand Canyon in the WAC Tournament championship game. He leads the team in blocks with 71 (2.2 per game). Head coach Bruce Pearl said assistant coaches Harris Adler, Steven Pearl and Chad Prewett will each be assigned the scout for each one of those three teams. All those guys can shoot 3s, average over 17 points a game.

New Mexico State is a solid team that has played well all season. "I see no reason why they (NMSU) don't continue to do that". "I think we're playing pretty good basketball".

"I honestly wanted to go there over Boise, so I'm much more happy about this place", DeVoe said.

"I'm definitely looking forward to it", junior guard Bryce Brown said.

In their recent string of losses, disjointed play has been the Tigers' Achilles' heel, with foul trouble, turnovers, and nearly no production from the perimeter haunting an offense that basketball statistician Ken Pomeroy has among the nation's 20 best.
