Texas A&M athletic director Eric Hyman said Friday that the men’s basketball team would consider a bid to the College Basketball Invitational if the situation presented itself.
A&M, 17-15, ended the regular season with a 91-83 double-overtime loss to Missouri in its opening game at the Southeastern Conference tournament in Atlanta on Thursday.
The 16-team CBI field will be announced Sunday after the 68-team NCAA field and 32-team NIT bracket are filled.
Texas, Houston, Purdue and Tulsa were part of the CBI tourney last season. A&M has never played in the CBI, which started in 2008 and has been won by Tulsa, Oregon State, Virginia Commonwealth, Oregon, Pittsburgh and Santa Clara.
