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

Texas A&M (15-13, 6-9 SEC) will travel to Athens to face Georgia (15-13, 5-10 SEC) on Saturday at 5 p.m. CT.

There is a lot that needs to happen for the Aggies to make the postseason. Currently sporting a five-game losing streak with a below .500 record overall and in league play. A&M appeared to take a step in the right direction during a last-second loss to No. 18 South Carolina, which can be argued they had a chance to win if not for a controversial call at the end of the game causing A&M to reset their offense. At this point, the Aggies have to put together a string of wins to make the postseason and possibly save Coach Buzz Williams’ job.

Georgia has issues of their own going 2-8 through the last nine games. With a virtually identical record as A&M and also currently on a losing streak they want to be the ones to come out on top. A win over Texas A&M would be an injection of some confidence into the struggling team. Saturday they will have that chance to all but eliminate the Aggies from any NCAA Tournament hopes and a step towards getting back even in SEC play.

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.
