Mar 20, 2013; Lexington, KY, USA; The North Carolina A

The Aggies hope they can continue to win and advance, but it’s going to be tough. They must defeat the No. 1 overall seeded Louisville Cardinals.

It has not been an impressive season for the Aggies, but they found a way into the NCAA Tournament and they hope they can be the first school in many years to knock off a No. 1 seed as a No. 16 seed.

Their opponent…Louisville! The Cardinals are going to be the likely winners when all is said and done. They’ve worked hard and built an impressive resume this season. Syracuse, Notre Dame, Kentucky, and Marquette all fell victim to Louisville, and for some teams, they fell for them twice.

Some of their key losses: Duke and Notre Dame. They fell just five points shorts against the Blue Devils and suffered a four point loss after five overtimes against the Fighting Irish.

You can watch the Aggies give it their all against Louisville at 6:50 p.m. on TBS. Ian Eagle, Jim Spanarkel, and Allie LaForce will be calling the action at courtside!
