Florida @ Texas A&M
Regular Season Records: Florida 19-12; Texas A&M 20-11
What to Know
The Texas A&M Aggies and the Florida Gators are set to clash at noon ET March 10 at Amalie Arena in the second round of the Southeastern Conference Tourney. If the game is anything like their last meeting in February, where the Aggies won 56-55, we could be in for a big score.
The Mississippi State Bulldogs typically have all the answers at home, but this past Saturday A&M proved too difficult a challenge. A&M came out on top in a nail-biter against MSU, sneaking past 67-64. Having forecasted a close victory for A&M, the oddsmakers were right on the money. Four players on A&M scored in the double digits: guard Quenton Jackson (18), forward Henry Coleman III (12), guard Tyrece Radford (11), and guard Wade Taylor IV (10).
Meanwhile, the Gators came up short against the Kentucky Wildcats this past Saturday, falling 71-63. Despite the loss, Florida got a solid performance out of forward Colin Castleton, who posted a double-double on 23 points and 11 boards.
A couple stats to keep an eye on: The Aggies enter the matchup with 10.3 steals per game on average, good for fourth best in college basketball. Less enviably, Florida has allowed their opponents an average of 7.3 steals per game, the 47th most in college basketball. In other words, they will need to work extra hard to take care of the ball.
