The Texas A&M Aggies fell to the Kansas St. Wildcats due to a bad second half and poor free throw shooting. After the first half Texas A&M was actually leading Kansas State by one point and they were keeping pace for the first five minutes in the second half. Kansas State then went on a 13-1 run to take a 43-35 lead with just under 10 minutes left in the game, and they never gave up that lead.
Texas A&M made an attempt to stay in this game with their three-point shooting and they did make 9 of 16 which was four more than Kansas State, but they could not hit anything from the two-point line as their overall shooting percentage was at 42 percent. Also, Texas A&M could not make their free throws and made only 8 of 15, but Kansas State was on the other end of the spectrum and made 17 of 22 from the line.
The Texas A&M defense also allowed a career-high scoring night to Will Spradling who had 19 points and allowed Angel Rodriguez to score 13 points all in the second half.
The lose drops Texas A&M to 3-7 in Big 12 play and 12-10 overall.
