TUSCALOOSA, Ala.- No. 14 Texas A&M looks to clinch its ninth consecutive 20-win season in women's basketball Sunday at 12 p.m. at Alabama. The Aggies enter the game having won 12 of their last 14 games.
The game is televised on FSN, with coverage in Texas on Fox Sports Southwest. Dave Baker and Daymeon Fishback have the call on TV. The broadcast is also simulcast on ESPN3, where fans outside of the SEC footprint can watch the game. On the radio, Mike Wright and Steve Miller have the call on the Texas A&M Sports Network.
The Aggies came back from 16 points down to defeat Georgia 78-73 in overtime in their last outing. The comeback was the largest for the Aggies since 2003 and the largest home comeback in program history. A&M has had at least four players score in double figures in three of their last four games, including the last two games.
One more win guarantees the Aggies a 14th 20-win season in program history, and the 23rd of head coach Gary Blair's career.
Alabama has won four games in SEC play under first year head coach Kristy Curry, including a huge upset win at No. 9 Kentucky. The Crimson Tide have won three of their last six games entering Sunday's contest.
Texas A&M took the first meeting between the sides 73-58 on Jan. 5 at Reed Arena, which was the Aggies' SEC opener. The Aggies led by 10 at halftime, but Alabama closed the margin to three in the second half before Texas A&M went on an 11-0 run to put the game away. The Aggies are looking for their third regular season sweep over an SEC opponent this year.
After this game, the Aggies take on Ole Miss on Feb. 20 in Oxford, Miss. before returning home on Feb. 23 to host No. 19 Kentucky at 1 p.m., a game televised on ESPN2.
