Texas A&M looks for season sweep over Missouri

SEC Match up

The Missouri Tigers will travel to College Station, Texas, to take on the Texas A&M Aggies at Reed Arena on Tuesday night. This is the second match up between the two teams in less than two weeks. Last time the teams met on Jan. 21, the Aggies beat the Tigers 66-64. The Aggies are looking for the season sweep on their home turf.

Missouri Tigers

Missouri has lost four of its last five games and is now 2-6 in conference play. In the three games since they last played the Aggies, they have been 20-balled twice. Although, they did mount a terrific comeback against Georgia in what would have been another crushing loss. They will come into Tuesday night’s game off a 22-point loss to South Carolina on Saturday.

Dru Smith leads the Tigers in both scoring and assists, averaging 11.7 points and 4.1 assists per game. Meanwhile, Mitchell Smith leads the team in rebounds, averaging 4.4 per game.

Texas A&M Aggies

Meanwhile, Texas A&M has won two of its last five games and is 4-4 in conference play. The Aggies are in danger of falling below .500 if they don’t secure another win against the Tigers.

Josh Nebo leads the Aggies, averaging 11.5 points and 6.9 rebounds per game. Savion Flagg averages a team-high 2.6 assists per game.
