Buzz Williams’ Post-Game Press Conference after Texas A&M defeats Ole Miss 69-62
Texas A&M (22-8, 14-3 SEC) defeated the Ole Miss Rebels on Tuesday night to the tune of 69-61 to even the series vs. the Mississippi schools, and win their 14th SEC game this season. With the win, the Aggies are still in contention for an SEC regular season title but will need some help tomorrow night from the Auburn Tigers to face Alabama on the road, needing the Crimson Tide to lose one more game in order for Saturday’s season finale matchup to have any meaning.
In an impressive defensive effort from the Aggies, Tyrece Radford led the team in points for the first time in a month with 13, while Wade Taylor IV scored 12 points, and recorded 5 rebounds and 7 assists on the night. Returning from injury in early January, Manny Obaseki played 11 minutes while scoring four points in a solid showing. Defensively, the Aggies pulled down for rebounds combined with 11 steals, holding the Rebels to 37% shooting aside from Ole Miss guard Matthew Murrels’ career night with 26 points and 8 3-pointers.
After the game, Head coach Buzz Williams spoke to the media to reflect on the big win, while looking forward to Saturday’s season finale vs. the Tide, hoping that the program will be fighting to win an SEC regular season championship for the first time in nearly a decade. Here’s what Buzz had to say on the night.
