Texas A&M gets rolled at Arkansas 94-75

Bud Walton Arena continues to be a house of horrors for this program. Well, this went about as well as could be expected. Arkansas loves to run, especially so at Bud Walton Arena, where they are 13-1 on the season. They push the pace, they take the first good shot they get, and they often drop into full court pressure after a made basket. Sounds like a disaster for a team that...

Aggies lose 62-58 at Mizzou

The winning streak died. Not with a bang, but with a whimper. Y’all, this was ugly. We submitted an absolute dud of a performance on the road, but Mizzou’s continued inability to close out games kept us hanging around far longer than we deserved. We dialed up some late full court pressure, stole an inbounds pass down two with :14 left, and had ourselves an honest chance to steal...
