How to watch: Texas A&M vs. Mississippi State
The 25h-ranked Texas A&M Aggies (21-7, 13-2 SEC) are just hours away from their big-time road matchup vs. Mississippi State inside Humphrey Coliseum (10-4 at home) in what should be an entertaining Saturday afternoon showdown. As the Bulldogs are currently projected as one of the “Last Team In” according to ESPN Bracketologist Joe Lunardi, plenty is on the line ahead of their 2:30 PM Tip-off.
On Tuesday, the Aggies defeated the 11th-ranked Tennesee Vols 68-63 to earn their 6th Quad 1 victory this season, while increasing their rankings in both the NET (24th) and KenPom (25th), led by sophomore guard Wade Taylor IV (25 points, 4 steals) and forward Julius Marble (21 points, 9 rebounds), combined with a 28-34 (82%) team performance from the free throw line.
For Texas A&M, two more Quad 1 opportunities remain on the schedule, including today’s game vs. the Bulldogs, and the season finale against Alabama that would decide the SEC regular season champion if the Aggies go 2-0 leading up to their March 4th meeting inside Reed Arena. According to Joe Lunardi, the Aggies are projected as a six-seed in the NCAA Tournament with a good chance to rise or fall depending on how they finish out the regular season, and SEC Tournament early next month.
Statistically, Sophomore guard Wade Taylor IV leads the Aggies in points (15.9 ppg), assists (4.1), and steals (1.8). For Mississippi State, big man senior forward Tolu Smith averages 14.9 ppg, 8.4 rebounds, and 0.8 blocks per game, followed by fellow senior forward D.J. Jeffries at 8.9 ppg, and 6.0 rebounds, while junior guard Shakeel Moore averages 9.1 ppg and leads the team in steals at 1.8 per contest.
