NCAA Bracket Update, Florida State Vs. Texas A&M: Seminoles Upset Aggies

Florida State, sparked by the return of Chris Singleton, downed Texas A&M Friday afternoon to win their first tournament game in 13 years. 

The game saw the return of Chris Singleton who suffered a broken foot in February and missed six games. The Seminoles 3-3 in his absence. Against the Aggies, the six-foot-nine forward tallied five points, two rebounds, and one block in 16 minutes of play. 

Just under 13 minutes into the game, the score was 12-12 and neither team could get anything going offensively in the first half.  The Florida State defense was stifling all night, forcing Texas A&M to shoot tough shots and holding them to 31.4% from the field. 

The Seminoles were led by Derwin Kitchen with 15 points. Khris Middleton had a game-high 16 points off of the bench for the Aggies. 

Florida State advances to the third round and will take on No. 2 Notre Dame on Sunday.
