COLLEGE STATION - No. 9-seed Texas A&M will face No. 8 seed Brigham Young in the first round of the NCAA Men's Basketball Championship on Thursday at the Wachovia Center in Philadelphia. Game time has been set for 11:30 a.m. on KBTX-TV.

The game is a rematch of last year's first-round contest played in Anaheim, Calif., when the teams had identical seeds. The Aggies beat the Cougars, 67-62.

The winner of Thursday's game will advance to Saturday's second-round game to face either No. 1 seed Connecticut or No. 16 seed Chattanooga.

A&M is one of just 16 schools to play in the last four NCAA Tournaments. Before this stretch, A&M had never made consecutive NCAA appearances
