Alabama v. Texas A&M Game Thread

Alabama Crimson Tide (10-4, 1-1 SEC) vs. Texas A&M Aggies (7-8, 0-2 SEC)

NCAA Basketball: Alabama at Louisiana State Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sports

The Crimson Tide return home for another Saturday showdown in the SEC. This week, Alabama plays host to a struggling Texas A&M squad still looking for its first conference win of the season. With a tough schedule still ahead of the Tide, Avery Johnson’s group really can’t afford to lose this game at home. A loss would essentially cancel out last week’s big win against Kentucky.

Alabama is expected to continue rolling with a starting five of Kira Lewis, Dazon Ingram, Tevin Mack, Herb Jones, and Donta Hall, with John Petty and Alex Reese the first two off of the bench for a bump in scoring.

Texas A&M will counter with T.J. Stark, Jay Jay Chandler, Savion Flagg, Christian Mekowulu, and either Birmingham native Brandon Mahan or Wendell Mitchell.

The game tips at 2:30 PM CST and will be televised on the SEC Network.
