LAS CRUCES, NM (KTSM) - Wednesday morning several Aggies fans gathered at the Pan American Center in Las Cruces to send off the NMSU men's basketball team in style.
The fans, school band and cheerleaders all energetically welcomed the team as they loaded up the bus to head to San Diego.
The Aggies sealed their seat in the NCAA after their 72 to 58 win over Grand Canyon University over the weekend.
"It means alot because they support our city and we have to support them to," 8 year old Aggies fan Dante Acosta said.
The Aggies tied a record for the program with 28 wins this season, which is just another reason the fans are so proud.
The Aggies hold the number 12 seed in the tournament and will play against number 5 Clemson on Friday.
