How to watch: Texas A&M vs. No 13 Auburn basketball game

Texas A&M (9-5, 0-1 SEC) will be on the road against the No. 16 Auburn Tigers (8-5,1-0) at Neville Arena on Tuesday at 8:00 PM CST.

The Aggies are a confusing team after falling to LSU last Saturday, just a year removed from being on top of the SEC last season. They have struggled to find scoring and their perimeter defense has got them in trouble when teams start to find their three-point shot. Coach Buzz Williams sat down with this team after the LSU game and told them they must go back to their brand of basketball. It better resonate throughout the locker room because the road only gets more difficult over the next few games.

The Tigers, on the other hand, are on a red-hot winning streak right now, defeating their last seven opponents by 15 points or more. Four of the starting five are essentially scoring double digits so far on the season and they are shooting 47% from the field while only allowing 38% from their counterparts.

The A&M SEC opponents consist of 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.
