The 7-seeded Aggies beat 10-seed Providence on Friday before crushing 2-seed North Carolina in Charlotte on Sunday to punch their ticket to the Sweet 16.

On Thursday night at 7:35 p.m. EST, the No. 3 Wolverines will square off against No. 7 Texas A&M at the STAPLES Center in Los Angeles.

Texas A&M had more second-chance points with 9, compared to North Carolina's 6.

The freshman standout scored a clutch 3 with a little over five seconds left, punching the Aggies' ticket to the Sweet 16 where they will play either No. 1 seed Notre Dame or ninth-seeded Villanova.

The Aggies used a 15-0 run against North Carolina to take a 42-28 lead into halftime.

Texas A&M has never advanced to the Elite Eight, so a win over MI would make history. Texas A&M head coach Gary Blair's squad on the other hand does their damage inside, as they did against Drake with 50 of their 89 points scored in the paint. The issue for me is that we are starting to see that MI magic again, and the buzzer beater that took down Houston was proof of that. MI is favored by 2.5 points, down a half-point from the opening line.

Speaking of the decision, Federation Internationale de Football Association president Infantino said: "We need to live with the times".

On the night, MI only shot 36 percent from the floor but held the Cougars to 37 percent.

With each player standing 6-10, not many teams in the country can match up against them. Davis leads the Aggies with an average of 14.6 points per game while Williams leads Texas A&M in rebounding with 9.3 boards per game and Gilder leads the Aggies in assists with 2.6 assists per game this season. Their only previous appearance in Reed Arena was a positive one when DePaul upset the No.15 Aggies 80-66 on December 12, 2015. Unfortunately, efforts like that are hard to repeat. Smart money likes the Wolverines.

MI is 11-0 SU and 9-2 ATS in its last 11 games.

The Aggies' average margin of victory in their last five games has been 5.4, down from 5.6 for the season. Tyler Davis had a solid performance for Texas A&M, finishing with 18 points and nine rebounds.
