Texas A&M Aggies Men’s Hoops vs. Arkansas Razorbacks: 2H Live Game Updates
For the first time this season, Texas A&M will have a conference game Tuesday night. After picking up a few more wins in their last two games, the Aggies (15-6, 7-1 SEC) will move into the Bud Walton Arena and have a win over the Arkansas Razorbacks (14-7, 3-5 SEC) gain
The Razorbacks, led by guard duo Anthony Black and Ricky Council IV, are coming off a 67-64 loss to Baylor in the Big 12 Challenge while the Aggies are in the early stages of another conference winning streak – fresh from behind -to-back wins against Auburn and Vanderbilt.
However, Texas A&M is back in the underdog column, playing on the road against a team that A&M coach Buzz Williams called arguably the “best perimeter in the country.”
For an Aggies win, Williams also emphasized not flipping the ball to prevent the Razorbacks from building momentum.
The key for Texas A&M could come from solid performances from senior guard Tyrece Radford and junior forward Henry Coleman, both of whom finished with double-digit points in the Aggies’ win over Vanderbilt.
A solid defensive display could also make the difference for the Aggies, who will try to slow down Rat and Black en route to a potential Arkansas street upset.
