SAN ANTONIO - Clark High School basketball coach Steve Sylestine is familiar with March Madness. Until Sunday, he was on the last Texas A&M team to beat the North Carolina Tar Heels in the NCAA Tournament. Unlike the 2018 Texas A&M men's basketball team, Sylestine's Aggies needed double-overtime to defeat the Tar Heels.

Sylestine played four years at A&M, and averaged 4.1 points and 2.1 rebounds per game. Click on the video above to hear what the Clark coach had to say about his NCAA Tournament run at A&M, and what he expects from the Aggies in the next round.

The Texas A&M men's basketball team is playing in the Regional Semifinals for the 4th time since 1980. The Aggies play the Michigan Wolverines on Thursday night.
