Following Texas A&M's 74-62 win over Alcorn State in the NIT on Tuesday, head coach Buzz Williams read an eight-minute statement bashing the NCAA selection committee for leaving the Aggies out of the big dance. Per ESPN:
"What has transpired is wrong," Williams stated.
Williams became emotional at times while reading his statement, particularly when referencing the players who decided to stay at Texas A&M with their extra year of eligibility that was granted due to the pandemic.
"The process is obviously flawed, and it is apparent that there is way more included that is unseen and unknown in the selection of the 36 at-large teams than what the public is made aware of,'' Williams said in concluding his statement. "Until there is complete transparency and accountability, the system will stay broken and this will continue to happen.''
