OXFORD, Miss.- Texas A&M heads to Ole Miss with a chance to lock up a double-bye in the SEC Women's Basketball Tournament. A Texas A&M win combined with losses from two of LSU, Florida and Kentucky, clinches a Top 4 seed in the SEC Tournament.
The Aggies have won 13 of their last 15 games, including a 71-46 win at Alabama in their last outing. Texas A&M clinched its ninth straight 20-win season with the win, and the 23rd of Gary Blair's coaching career.
Ole Miss enters the game with two of the SEC's top six scorers, with Tia Faleru and Valencia McFarland averaging over 16.0 points per game. McFarland is second in the SEC in assist per league game, only trailing A&M's Jordan Jones.
Texas A&M head coach Gary Blair does not have a career victory at Ole Miss, going 0-6 in previous coaching stints at Stephen F. Austin and Arkansas.
The game is broadcast on the Texas A&M Sports Network, with Mike Wright and Steve Miller on the call. A live video stream is available to subscribers of Ole Miss' video package. All of the Aggies' remaining games are slated for television coverage.
After this game, the Aggies return home on Feb. 23 to host Kentucky at 1 p.m. on ESPN2.
