Florida vs Texas A&M Game Preview, SEC Tournament
Why Florida Will Win
The Gators weren’t bad over the the finishing kick – they lost to some of the SEC’s stars – and played Texas A&M tough on the road in a 56-55 loss. It was able to pull it off even though it couldn’t hit a thing.
This should be another low scoring tight battle and it should come down to free throws. A&M is awful on the line – NO CHANCE it goes 16-for-16 like it did in the first game – and Florida should be at least a +3 there. However …
Why Texas A&M Will Win
The A&M defense locked down well lately in the four-game winning streak.
The team got past a brutal stretch of eight straight losses by passing it around a bit better coming up with one of the better shooting stretches of the season, but again, it all starts with the D.
The Aggies are among the best in the nation at forcing turnovers and mistakes, and it’s that pressure that should force a shooting-challenged team like Florida from getting into a groove.
Florida vs Texas A&M: What’s Going To Happen
Can either team do enough on the glass?
Don’t expect any sort of a high-octane shootout, and look for both defenses to step up with a slew of takeaways as a part of long stretches of scoring slips.
Texas A&M shoots a bit better because it moves the ball around faster. It’ll be tight late.
