MEMPHIS, TEN. - Nebraska is looking to do something that's never been done for in the history of the men's basketball program - win an NCAA Tournament game. 

They have the chance to do that on Friday night, as the 8-seed Huskers face off with 9-seed Texas A&M in Memphis. 

"When we put this group together, we knew we had a chance to be here," Head Coach Fred Hoiberg said. "I give all the credit to the guys for continuing to buy in this entire season regardless of the outcome. Whether we won or we've lost, we feel like we prepared the same way. These guys have been extremely coachable... I'm excited that we have this opportunity."

Going back to his days at Iowa State, Fred Hoiberg is no stranger to appearances in the tournament. He broke down what it takes to win during March Madness. 

"You've got to be tied together," Hoiberg said. "You have to find a way to stick together when things aren't going your way... I'm confident, our groups been through a lot, a lot of highs and lows, and I do believe we're playing as well as we have all year right now so I hope we handle the adversity we'll face well."

The Aggies enter with a record of 20-14 and ranks first in the country in offensive rebounding. Brice Williams broke down what it takes to find success against A&M.

"They're an aggressive team, there's nothing special about them, but they have their strategy of trying to out muscle their opponent," Williams said. "We just can't get punked."

Senior Rienk Mast played four years at Bradley, but never made it to the big dance. Now he has a chance to get Nebraska their first ever NCAA Tournament win. 

"To actually be here and have this opportunity, it's super exciting," Mast said. "Hopefully we can write some history. 

The Huskers and Aggies tip-off at 5:50 p.m. CT, on Friday evening.
