Fresh off the road win at Kentucky, the Texas Aggie basketball team will try to keep its undefeated SEC record intact when they welcome the nationally ranked Florida Gators to Reed Arena Thursday night. Tip-off is scheduled for 6:00 PM
COLLEGE STATION, Texas - Riding the confidence of back-to-back victories to open Southeastern Conference play, the
men's basketball team is back in action Thursday when it hosts No. 10/9
at 6 p.m. inside Reed Arena.
The match-up will be televised nationally by ESPN2 with Rece Davis and Bob Knight calling all the action from Aggieland.
Prior to the game from 5-6 p.m. fans will have their opportunity to take a picture with the Heisman Trophy on the concourse and during halftime the 2012 Texas A&M football team will be honored.
The Aggies (12-3, 2-0 SEC) are coming off an 83-71 victory over defending national champion
at Rupp Arena last Saturday. The UK win was highlighted by a career-best 40-point outburst from senior guard
, which netted him National and SEC Player of the Week honors.
The Sacramento, Calif., native made 14-of-19 shot attempts against the Wildcats to become just the third-ever opponent to score 40 points against UK at Rupp, joining
's Chris Jackson and Navy's
. It also marked the first 40-point game by an Aggie since Don Marbury put up 41 against
on Jan. 5, 1985.
Additional standouts on the court against the Wildcats were sophomore forward
, who narrowly missed his second straight double-double by finishing with 10 points and nine rebounds, and junior guard
, who scored 14 second-half points to record his fourth-consecutive double-digit scoring contest.
Florida (12-2, 2-0 SEC) also enters Thursday's contest with a perfect slate in league play after defeating
at home and LSU on the road last week.
The Gators are led by head coach
, who is in his 17th season in Gainesville and has guided UF to the Elite Eight each of the last two seasons in addition to back-to-back national championships in 2006 and 2007.
On the court, a quartet of Gators (
