How to watch: Texas A&M vs. Florida basketball game

Texas A&M (12-8, 3-4 SEC) will be at home to host the Florida Gators (15-6, 5-3 SEC) on Saturday at 1:00 PM CST.

The Aggies are who they are at this point until we see a different type of consistency from this team. After looking like A&M might be turning a corner, they were unable to close out the game against Ole Miss. Wade Taylor IV, like usual, led the way with 30 points. Still, a late defensive lapse allowed the Rebels to snatch the victory away in the final minutes. The Aggies remain a very up-and-down team, still trying to find their identity.

Florida started off a little rough but is now one of the hottest teams in the SEC. All five starters average double-digits in scoring and are currently averaging 85 points a game while sporting a four-game winning streak. They are rising high after defeating #10 Kentucky and will look to extend their steak when they visit Reed Arena on Saturday.

The A&M SEC opponents are hosting Kentucky, Florida, and Tennessee at Reed Arena to highlight the home slate. The Aggies’ road foes include AlabamaArkansasAuburnGeorgiaLSU, Missouri, Ole Miss, Tennessee, and Vanderbilt.
