Lexington, Ky. -- The North Carolina A&T Aggies will have extra support in their game Thursday night from a famous fan, the Rev. Jesse Jackson.
Jackson met the team at its hotel minutes before the Aggies left for Rupp Arena. The reverend then rode with the A&T team on its bus and will sit with Chancellor Harold Martin at the game.
The No. 16 seed Aggies, who won the team's first NCAA Tournament game in school history on Tuesday vs. Liberty, face a monumental challenge against overall No. 1 seed Louisville in their second-round matchup.
Tipoff for the game is scheduled for 6:50 p.m.
