Alabama player to watch: Nick Pringle

Nick Pringle showed up in a big way the last time Alabama took the court, dropping 17 points in just 15 minutes. While those numbers are not expected or needed to be duplicated, the Tide will need Pringle to show that Alabama can be physical in the paint to hold off the Aggies.

You won’t find many guards in the country better than Wade Taylor. Taylor does it all for the Aggies as he leads A&M in points, assists, and steals. Containing Taylor will be critical to the Tide’s success on Saturday.

Score prediction

Texas A&M will present a great challenge for Alabama as the Aggies is one of the top defensive teams in the SEC. If Alabama can keep the pace of the game in their favor, the Tide should roll at home.

Alabama 82, Texas A&M 68
