A pair of SEC opponents take the floor in the Music City. The Texas A&M Aggies are on the road as they travel to take on the Vanderbilt Commodores Saturday afternoon. Texas A&M lost its third in a row with a 93-81 home loss to Mississippi State Tuesday night. Vanderbilt had won two straight before falling 88-78 at LSU in their last contest Tuesday night. The Commodores hold an 8-2 lead in the all-time series and have taken three straight, including a 66-41 win in the SEC Tournament in their last matchup on March 9, 2017.

Texas A&M Aggies Struggling Down the Stretch

Texas A&M found itself on the wrong end of the ledger for the third straight game as they were stunned at home by Mississippi State. The Aggies dropped to 17-11 overall and just 6-9 in the SEC with the loss, leaving them with the very real possibility of a sub-.500 conference mark. Texas A&M was down two at the half and never led in the second half as Mississippi State pulled away late. The Aggies shot 50.8 percent from the field and went five of 17 from three point range. Free throws and rebounding hurt Texas A&M: they lost the battle of the boards 44-31 while going 16 of 28 at the line compared to the Bulldogs’ 23 of 29. Tyler Davis had 25 points and 11 boards to lead the Aggies in the loss.

The Aggies are tied for 138th in scoring offense with 75.4 points per game this season. Texas A&M is 5th in rebounding as they grab 41.2 boards a night and is tied for 41st in the nation with 16.1 assists per game. The Aggies have been good defensively, ranking 113th by allowing 69.9 points per contest. Texas A&M is shooting 46.1 percent from the floor as a team. The Aggies splash 6.7 threes a night but are connecting on just 32.7 percent from beyond the arc. Tyler Davis is currently leading the team with 14.4 points plus 8.8 rebounds a night. DJ Hogg (11.2 points, 5.4 boards, 2.8 assists), Admon Gilder (12.1 points, 4.2 boards, 2.8 dimes), Robert Williams (11.2 points, 9.6 rebounds) and Duane Wilson (nine points, four assists), who transferred from Marquette, are also solid scoring options for the Aggies. Tonny Trocha-Morelos, TJ Starks and Jay Jay Chandler each put up at least 3.8 points a night. Texas A&M is converting just 67.5 percent of their chances at the charity stripe on the year.

Vanderbilt Commodores Look to Continue Recent Home Success

Vanderbilt has won five straight at home but they are winless on the road, which is why they were knocked off by LSU in their last contest. The Commodores fell to 11-17 overall and 5-10 in the SEC with the defeat. Vanderbilt trailed by 10 at the half and couldn’t get closer than five the rest of the way as the took the defeat. The Commodores shot 43.8 percent from the field and went 14 of 39 from three point range. Defense proved to be the issue as they allowed LSU to shoot a scorching 62.5 percent in the contest. Riley LaChance led Vanderbilt with 26 points in the loss.

The Commodores are 227th in the nation in scoring offense with an average of 72.3 points per game. Vanderbilt is 255th in rebounding as they collect 33.9 boards a night and 289th with 12 assists per game. The Commodores are tied for 209th in the nation in scoring defense as they give up an average of 73.5 points per game. Vanderbilt is shooting 43.4 percent from the floor as a team. The Commodores knock down 8.6 three point field goals per game and are hitting 33.9 percent from long range. Vanderbilt is hitting 74.7 percent from the free throw line as a team this season. Jeff Roberson contributes a team leading 16.7 points and 7.1 boards a game for the Commodores. Matthew Fisher-Davis chips in 11.9 points plus 5.1 rebounds a night, Riley LaChance (13.6 points, 3.3 assists) and Saben Lee (10.2 points, 2.9 assists) are all scoring in double figures for Vanderbilt. Joe Toye, Djery Baptiste, Clevon Brown and Payton Willis each put up at least 3.4 points a game this season.

Trends:

Texas A&M

  • Aggies are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games
  • Aggies are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games vs. a team with a winning home record

Vanderbilt

  • No Key Trends

This one is more a matter of momentum and location than anything. Texas A&M has the talent but they’ve been unable to put it together down the stretch and that has led to three straight losses. The Aggies are just 2-7 on the road this season while Vanderbilt has all 11 of their wins at home, including five straight victories on their home floor. That gives the Commodores the upper hand in this contest as they get their sixth straight home victory.
