Aggies Preview:

Through 24 games, the Texas A&M Aggies have an overall record of 17-7. On the road, the Aggies will be playing their 8th game of the season, having gone 5-3. This season, Texas A&M has been favored to win in 19 games, sitting with a mark of 15-4. For today’s contest, Texas A&M has a betting line set -7 points in their favor.

Texas A&M will be counting on another strong performance from the team’s leading scorer Wade Taylor IV who is averaging 14.92 points per game for the Aggies. IV is also important to the team’s ability to score on the perimeter. So far, he leads the team in 3-point shots made. Also key to the Aggies’ offensive game plan is the play of Tyrece Radford who has hit 42.3% of his field goal attempts on his way to averaging 13.62 points per game.

Offensive production has been hard to come by for Texas A&M this season, as they are currently ranked 152nd in college basketball at 72.8 points per game. A major reason for low scoring totals is the fact that they have played at a below average pace, and have struggled to knock down outside shots. As a team, the Aggies’ 3-point shooting percentage sits at just 33.6%, placing them 281st in the NCAA.

Tigers Preview:

The LSU Tigers head into today’s game in what will be their 25th game of the season, posting a record of 12-12. Currently, the Tigers have been the home team 15 times, sitting with a record of 10-5. So far, the Tigers have been the underdog 14 times, going 2-12 straight up. Heading into today’s contest, they are the +7 underdogs on the spread.

KJ Williams comes into today’s game as the Tigers’ leading scorer at 16.46 points per contest. Not only has Williams been key to the team’s scoring efforts, but he is LSU’s top rebounder at 7.46 boards per contest. Behind Williams, the team has benefited from the strong play of Adam Miller, who is second on the team in scoring at 11.67 points per game. Overall, he has hit 34.0% of his shots and is adding 2.17 boards per game.

On offense, LSU is scoring a rate similar to the NCAA average at 73.1 points per game. This figure has come despite struggling to knock down shots from outside. Through 24 games, they have only hit 31.9% of their 3-point field goal attempts. For the season, 34.64% of their shots have come from beyond the arc.
