Home Sweet Home
The Aggies (6-14, 1-9 SEC) have held their opponents to 60 points-or-less nine times this season while playing at home, only allowing opponents to score 56.3 points per game in Aggieland. The Maroon & White’s last matchup at home resulted in a 75-73 win against Georgia when Janiah Barker went for 24 points and going 10-of-11 from the field.
Texas A&M forced its first 17 foes this season below their yearly scoring output, limiting seven teams to their season-low at the time of the contest. The Aggie defense has forced four SEC opponents to a single digit scoring quarter, each of those being the lowest of the season for the respective teams, including LSU (22-0, 10-0 SEC) when it scored just eight points in the first quarter in their first meeting earlier this year.
1,000 Points for Patty
Fifth-year senior Aaliyah Patty comes into the matchup against LSU needing 11 points to hit 1,000 total career points. She returns following an impressive performance against Florida where she tallied 11 rebounds, six points, four steals and an assist.
On top of it being BTHO Breast Cancer, the Aggies will also be honoring their seniors. Both Patty and McKinzie Green will be honored in a pregame ceremony ahead of Sunday’s game.
