Kentucky No. 12 to face second SEC ‘top dog,’ Texas A&M

LEXINGTON, Ky. (FOX 56) – After arguably his best offensive performance against Tennessee at RUPP Arena on Saturday, the Kentucky No. 12 will travel to face the second-best team in the Southeastern Conference, Texas A&M, to try for his second real victory. on the road.

“We have to stick with what we’re doing,” assistant head coach Bruiser Flint said. “We’ve been pretty good defensively no matter what happens, we have a size advantage that we need to take advantage of and both ends of the floor, we rebound and post the ball, so we just have to do what we do best.

The ‘Cats have their hands full with a Texas A&M team that hasn’t lost a game at home. Their only losses were Wisconsin and TCU, both at neutral sites. To add to that, they’re on an eight-game winning streak after recently coming back from a 13-point deficit to defeat Missouri on the road.

“If you call it a trap game, you’re crazy,” Flint said. “We don’t take it that way. A&M is playing great right now and what stands out the most is that they’ve won a lot of close games because they have guys who can make plays when they need to.

When you look at the Wildcats schedule, they haven’t shown yet if they can hold on to the best of them down the stretch. It was played in the last minutes against Duke, Notre Dame and especially LSU with less than thirty seconds on the clock and two turnovers cost them the game. There is no doubt that this game will test the Cats in the same way.

“Their guard game has been phenomenal, they go after you defensively, put a lot of pressure on you offensively, and they’re overall one of the best teams in the league to have seen them on film,” said said Flint.
