Aggies Host Albany; Arkansas Prepares For Dayton

COLLEGE STATION (AP) – When coach Gary Blair took over at Texas A&M in 2003 he went door to door begging people to come watch his struggling team play.

Blair has since transformed the team into a contender, and he led the Aggies to their first national title last season.

On Saturday, No. 3 seed Texas A&M will make its school-record seventh straight NCAA appearance, facing No. 14 seed Albany and hosting a tournament game for the first time since 1994.

Albany is making its first-ever tournament appearance after winning the America East tournament.

Arkansas returns to the tournament for the first time since 2003, and will play Dayton in the first game in College Station. The Flyers are in the tournament for the third consecutive season after winning their first Atlantic 10 tourney championship.
