Texas A&M Vs. Texas: Game Preview, TV Info And More

The Aggies travel to Austin one last time in a game with huge March implications for both teams.

After a disappointing 0-2 start to Big 12 play, including a 74-50 home loss to Iowa State on Saturday, Texas A&M heads to Austin in what's sure to be an emotional game against the Texas Longhorns Wednesday night.

The two in-state arch-rivals currently have no plans to schedule each other in non-conference play after Texas A&M moves to the SEC.

For first-year coach Billy Kennedy, the game represents an opportunity to get his previously nationally ranked team back on track, as they are currently at risk of breaking their school-record six consecutive trips to the NCAA Tournament.

A road win against Texas, another middle-of-the-pack Big 12 team, will go a long way towards improving their resume come March, especially since the Aggies do not have a signature non-conference victory to hang their hats on.

They'll need big scoring efforts from the 6'8 David Loubeau and 6'7 Khris Middleton, as they will be bigger and more experienced than the young, undersized Longhorn defenders they'll be matched up against.

Defensively, Texas A&M will try to shut down Texas' back-court duo of J'Covan Brown and Myck Kabongo, who combine to average nearly 30 points and 10 assists a night.

The 8:00 PM game will be broadcast nationally on ESPN2.
