The LSU women’s basketball team, losers of two straight, faces a tough task Thursday evening as the Lady Tigers welcome in the 12-0 Texas A&M Aggies, ranked seventh in the country.
Texas A&M has one of the strongest resumés this year, with wins over Kentucky and Arkansas. The Aggies are a legitimate challenger to South Carolina for supremacy in the SEC. A&M has four players scoring at least 10 points a game, led by Aaliyah Wilson’s 15 points N’dea Jones’s 13 points, Ciera Johnson’s 11 points and Alexis Morris’s 10.
“A&M has size and athleticism, and perimeter players that can play multiple layers,” Nikki Fargas said Wednesday afternoon. “They’ve been around a long time, have experience and know how to win. We believe in our defense and will still run it. This game is about controlling the tempo and pace of the game.”
Thursday kicks off the SEC’s 10th annual We Back Pat week, which celebrates the life of former Tennessee head coach Pat Summitt and brings awareness to finding research toward a cure for Alzheimer’s. You can donate to The Pat Summitt Foundation at patsummitt.org.
The game will be carried on SEC Network+ and can be streamed through the Watch ESPN app.
