Wow... I’m devastated for this Aggie team. You could tell they wanted to win a tournament game, especially Sam. Now they’ll never get the chance. I’m glad the season ended like it did, and the team ended on the highest note possible. THANK YOU AGGIES FOR MAKING PROUD!! BACK TO BACK CHAMPS BABY!

I can't think of a team this season who got to have a better ending then we did. Glad to have had our tournament early.

I’m not as crazy of a fan as many of you, but I’ll never forget that game. Legend.

It does result in one poetic fact....Sam Merrill's last shot as an Aggie was a game winning three. Great exit for him and for us for all time.

We'll be one of only 13 teams that can hang a Conference Tournament Champion banner. And if will be magnificent.

I'm convinced this is the NCAA being scared we'd finally win a first round game after so many years.

That's what I initially thought but there's so much that goes into it.. Security, hotels, arenas, TV contracts and schedules.. It's probably just too much of a mess. Plus there's no telling when this virus will slow down.

Pretty cool factoid for history that USU earned the 1st bid to the tourney that never happened.

Truly, truly sucks. Gutted for the team - especially the seniors. Sam’s last shot was arguably the greatest shot in Aggie history. I hope he takes some solace in that. The stuff legends are made of.

It just feels like this whole season was for nothing. I mean I understand that we won the conference and that is all good, but the goal is to make the tourney and win some games.

Feels like a whole new way for the tournament to snub us. We were the first ranked team not invited also.

We beat more Q1 teams than we ever have, and won an incredible conference tournament. It could be worse. BYU was picked to be a 4-6 seed and will end on a loss to St. Mary's :lol:

Haha wasn't even thinking about BYU's situation. Who I honestly feel really bad for is Dayton.. Not very often that a school like them gets the chance to be a 1 seed. Teams like Duke and Kansas will always reload.

Both SDSU and Dayton. Both lost 2 games by less than 6 points. Really sucks to be them.

Troll aside, that SDSU team was legit. Personally I think they would've won a lot of games.

Downward trend aside, they seemed like serious Final Four contender.

That’s what I was thinking too. The logistics has to be a nightmare and where it’s school sports and school ends soon, it would be hard to have kids hanging out waiting around to maybe play or not play. Professional sports on inserts and postponing since it’s their job and most arena are owned by teams so they can change schedules easier.

At first I was mad we had ours first....Now I will be eternally grateful we got to watch that game.

Not gonna lie, the second thing I thought of when I heard this after heart break for the fan was....Dang, I should have taken that bet with SDSU about who went farther in the Tourney....hahahaha..... We ended the season with a win over them and they ended with a lose....sorry, looking for the silver lining.... :)

I hope the NCAA re-thinks this. Maybe If/when the virus madness calms down in a month or two, they have a condensed version of the tourney in one central location.

Say Atlanta or LA where all the games are played over the course of two weeks at nearby venues such as (LA Area) Staples Center, Galen Center (USC), Polly Pavillion (UCLA) and/or the Honda Center. Somewhere with plenty of hotels to accommodate, and plenty of flights in and out of?
