Energy was high and school spirit was soaring as Aggie basketball fans packed Buffalo Wild Wings in College Station for the big game.

"We're hype, we're ready. All my fans are here, we're ready," said Joel Martinez, Aggie fan.

"I'm excited and I'm nervous, but it's really nice to be able to be a fan of Aggie basketball," said Megan Barrett, Aggie fan.

"We've got some great basketball going on in Aggieland and it's nice to be excited about basketball again," Kyle Foster, Aggie fan.

At half time the score was tied and the energy had kicked in full force. But all the fans had faith the Aggies could pull out a win.

"We've been playing good with a lot of energy, so I think we're going to do great and pull it out," said LA Bankler, Aggie fan.

"I feel like we're going to pull it out make it to the sweet sixteen," said Barrett.

With two minutes left in the game the score was tied again, but it was a sad ending for the Ags.

"I'm a little sad, it's disappointing to go out like that on a lucky shot," said Barrett.

"It was a tough game, we played with heart did all they could it was a great season," said Foster.

But not everyone in Aggieland went home unhappy.

"I love Darrel Mitchell, that was the biggest shot I've ever seen, I couldn't be happier," said Jason Risbourg, LSU fan.

Even though the Aggies didn't win, they still made it further than they have in almost two decades. And the fans loyalty to the team remains strong.

"We're going to be right back where we were and maybe go further," said Barrett.

"We're going to be back and we're going to the final four, gig 'em Aggies," said Steven Mendez, Aggie fan.
