Aggie Hoops on the Road at MSU
Texas A&M (12-7, 2-4 SEC) enters the game looking to snap a four-game skid that followed a 2-0 start to conference play. Most recently the Aggies mounted an inspired comeback attempt before falling to Georgia 59-52 on Saturday at Reed Arena. Against Georgia, senior guard Elston Turner scored a team-leading 19 points on 5-of-14 shooting from the floor to mark the 22nd time during his two seasons at A&M that he has led the Aggies in scoring. Additionally, Turner cracked the double-digit barrier in points for the 40th time in 51 career games at Texas A&M.
Junior guard Fabyon Harris also enjoyed a solid night offensively, notching 13 points to reach double-digits for the seventh time in his last 10 contests.
Mississippi State brings its own four-game losing streak into the contest Wednesday following an 82-47 loss to Florida in Starkville during its most recent outing. The Bulldogs feature a balanced scoring attack that includes seven players who average seven or more points per contest. Freshman guard Fred Thomas highlights the group with an 11.1 point-per-game average and is coming off a game-high, 19-point performance against the Gators on Saturday.
MSU is led by first-year head coach Rick Ray, who spent the previous two seasons as an assistant at Clemson before being hired to lead the Bulldog men's basketball program during the offseason.
