Alabama Men’s Basketball Travels to Face Texas A&M on Saturday Night
Alabama will play its penultimate road contest of the season when it travels to face Texas A&M on Saturday at 7 p.m. CT. It will be the only meeting this season between the two teams.
Texas A&M and Alabama will meet for the 15th time in series history, and the sixth time as SEC foes, with the Crimson Tide leading the all-time series, 10-4. Alabama has claimed three straight wins in the series and has been victorious in four of the last five games against the Aggies. Tonight's game marks the sixth time the Tide has played the Aggies in College Station, Texas, with Alabama owning an all-time record of 2-3 in those games.
Most recently, Alabama had its two-game winning streak snapped on Thursday night with a 60-55 home loss against Georgia. The Tide was able to fight back from a 14-point first half deficit to within a single point on five different occasions over the game's final nine-plus minutes, but could not overcome the final hurdle en route to the five-point defeat. Junior guard Ar'Mond Davis led the Tide with 17 points off the bench.
Saturday's game will be televised on ESPN2 with Tom Hart (play-by-play) and Kara Lawson (analyst) on the call. Fans can listen to the radio broadcast on 95.3 the Bear as Chris Stewart (play-by-play) and Bryan Passink (analyst) will call all the action.
