The Texas A&M Aggies and the West Virginia Mountaineers will both be trying to pick up a win on Saturday when they battle at WVU Colliseum.

ABOUT TEXAS A&M (11-8): The Aggies’ frontline of Williams and Tyler Davis dominated the paint in the team’s 80-76 win over Ole Miss on Wednesday as Williams continued to emerge as a likely first-round NBA Draft pick. Guard Admon Gilder played all 40 minutes for the second straight game and had a career-high 22 points along with seven rebounds and seven assists to lead the Aggies, who rank second in the SEC in rebounding margin at plus-6.2. Guard DJ Hogg, the team’s second-leading scorer at 13.1 points per game, missed the Ole Miss game with a foot injury and is listed as day-to-day.

ABOUT WEST VIRGINIA (16-4): The Mountaineers boast a balanced scoring attack with four players averaging double figures, including guard Jevon Carter, who leads the Big 12 in steals with 62 and filled the box score against Kansas with nine points, eight rebounds and nine assists. The Mountaineers are hoping for a strong finish from Ahmad, who entered the Kansas game with four straight games in single digits but finished 10-of-17 from the field against the Jayhawks. “I was just aggressive,” he told reporters. “I’ve been in a slump. I just wanted to come out and be aggressive. I’ve been getting some extra shots up and it paid off.”

Bovada Sportsbook currently has the Mountaineers listed as 16.5-point favorites versus the Aggies, while the game’s total is sitting at 143 according to GTBETS

West Virginia looks to build on its signature win over Kansas on Saturday as the 18th-ranked Mountaineers host Texas A&M in the SEC/Big 12 Challenge. Senior wing Esa Ahmad broke out of a shooting slump with a career-high 27 points to help the Mountaineers snap the Jayhawks’ 18-game winning streak in Tuesday’s 85-69 victory, and he’ll need another strong outing against the surging Aggies.

Freshman forward Robert Williams is averaging 14 points and 12 rebounds during his last three games for Texas A&M, which is coming off back-to-back wins over Georgia and Ole Miss. The Aggies are seeking their first win over a ranked opponent and could present a difficult matchup for the Mountaineers, who bounced back from losses to Oklahoma and Kansas State with the impressive showing against Kansas. “I think that West Virginia has a good team,” Kansas coach Bill Self told reporters. “I think if we’re going to look at it over time, I think when they’re turned up, which they were [Tuesday], I think they’re certainly one of the best teams in the country.” West Virginia, which also has wins over Virginia and Baylor on its resume, is known for its pressure defense but relied more on their half-court game to hold the Jayhawks to two fast-break points.

West Virginia was a 85-69 winner in their most recent outing at home against Jayhawks. They covered the -3-point spread as favorites.

Texas A&M was a 80-76 winner in its last match on the road against Rebels. They covered the +1.5-point spread as underdogs.
