Is this the worst shooting Aggie team in its SEC days?

They are shooting 36% from the field, 21% from the three and 63% on FTs. I have watched them in a couple of games and they look like a mid-major team that plays good defense but can’t score.

This could be the easiest SEC home game this year. Or maybe time for Joe and Jones to cool off a bit, win by 10 and get refueled for Baton Rouge.

Or it could be a tough defensive struggle. I suspect you are correct. A bad 3-point shooting team meets a great 3-point shooting defense.

In terms of efficiency, this is A&M’s worst offensive team since at least 1997. That’s how far back their history page on KenPom goes.

We almost lost to Northern Kentucky. Let’s get real, TAMU is an SEC team, and we don’t start a player over 6’6". We need to be intensely serious this first game.

On the other hand, Nolan’s NET had them at #191 yesterday.

Don’t forget that the team’s best player didn’t play vs. Northern Kentucky. That game probably wouldn’t have been tight with him in the lineup. And the 6-6 and smaller lineup just beat an Indiana team starting three players at 6-7 and above. Indiana is a much better team than Texas A&M, and the Razorbacks didn’t have the benefit of a home court advantage last game. Arkansas should be favored tomorrow.

Only if, all games were decided on paper… Last I checked aTm was a SEC team with D1 talent I just hope our players are not looking to take these guys lite (and i know they are not) as many posters on this board are. Also I believe A&M have a decent coach.

Flagg can get hot! Don’t think it would be cake walk. They have a big man down low but our home court with a packed Bud Walton should give the hugs the edge. This is a must win in terms of the definition of a bad loss! Our hogs need to win games like this one!
Defense will be the key.

For some reason this game scares me. It reeks of Ali-Norton one. Don’t pay any attention to the tale of the tape. If they are a conference opponent, they can knock you down if you don’t bring your best. Gotta bring the focus and intensity and take the Aggies seriously. This is the A$M team from College Station, not Kingsville or Corpus Christi.
