These two teams are battling it out for the No. 8 seed in the Big 12 conference tournament, but at the moment it is the Oklahoma Sooners who could be landing that spot as they lead the Texas A&M Aggies 33-26 at the half. Oklahoma is being led by Romero Osby who has 14 points on 6-of-9 shooting, and Texas A&M is being led by Ray Turner who has eight points. However, the the Aggie scoring is being spread out among multiple players.
Texas A&M is hanging around in this game because they have gone 4-of-9 from three-point range which is three more than Oklahoma, but Oklahoma has countered that by getting to the free throw line at a better rate than Texas A&M. Oklahoma is 6-of-7 while Texas A&M is only 1-of-3.
Texas A&M's defense needs to step up their game if they want to win as they are allowing Oklahoma to shoot just under 50 percent at the half.
