BRYAN-COLLEGE STATION, Texas — The Alabama Crimson Tide (13-11, 4-9 SEC)
will look to spoil the Aggies’ Senior Night as they travel to College Station on Sunday to
take on Texas A&M (14-11, 4-9 SEC).
In their last matchup, the then No. 3 Texas A&M defeated Alabama in a close contest
73-67 in Tuscaloosa. Sunday’s contest will likely be an entirely different matchup
however, as only four players on Alabama’s current roster played against the Aggies
Texas A&M enters Sunday’s game coming off a 20 point loss on the road to Ole Miss.
The Aggies have lost their last two games by double digits.
The team is led by Senior guard Kayla Wells, who averages 16.8 points on 46.2%
shooting, including 50% shooting from three.
Texas A&M is second in the nation in three-point percentage, and are top five in the
SEC in field-goal percentage against, free-throw percentage, and rebounds per game.
Alabama looks to build momentum, as they enter the game fresh off their first ranked
win of the season at home last week against the then No. 12 Tennessee.
Megan Abrams enters Sunday’s game having scored a combined 48 points in the last
two games on 51.6% shooting. She has been a bright spot for Alabama late in the
season after struggling with injury and illness at the beginning of conference play.
The team’s leading scorer Brittany Davis seems to be back to her usual production for
the Tide, contributing 23 points and six rebounds in the win against the Lady Vols.
JaMya Mingo-Young comes into the game off an impactful night against Tennessee,
despite scoring only eight points. She instead gave Alabama 10 rebounds, six steals,
and five assists, all while locking-up the Lady Vols’ best scorer.
The Texas A&M Aggies host the Alabama Crimson Tide at home in Reed Arena. Tipoff
is set for 5 p.m. CT and the game can been seen on the SEC Network.
