Why Texas A&M Will Win
Who’s been more fun than in conference tournament time than Texas A&M?
It got through a blast of a gut-check game against Florida, and it held up against a furious Auburn comeback attempt for a 67-62 win, but this isn’t a fluke.

Why Arkansas Will Win
No one comes up with more steals than LSU, and that didn’t matter a lick to Arkansas team that stepped up big on the boards in the 79-67 win over the Tigers on Friday.

It survived the Gators, was fantastic at keeping Auburn from getting out on the move, and it should keep Arkansas from doing what it does best.
Neither team will do much from three, but both will be great from the free throw line in a thriller that will come down to the final few possessions.
