Looking to bounce back from a tough loss to OSU, the Aggies host the Sooners on Saturday at 1:05 p.m. The game will be televised nationally on ESPN2. Dave Barnett (play-by-play) and Stephen Bardo (analyst) will call the action.

The teams: #22 Oklahoma (9-4, 0-2 Big 12) at Texas A&M (11-2, 2-1 Big 12)

When: Saturday, January 14, 2006. Tip-off is slated for 1:05 p.m. (CST).

Location: Reed Arena (12,500); College Station, TX

Television: ESPN2 (national); Dave Barnett (play-by-play) and Stephen Bardo (analyst)

Radio: Texas A&M Sports Network; Dave South (play-by-play) and Al Pulliam (analyst)

Series: Oklahoma leads Texas A&M 23-1 and has beaten the Aggies 12 consecutive times. The Sooners won the last meeting (in Norman, OK) between the two teams, 69-65. A&M’s single victory against the OU came in Reed Arena in 1999.

OU guard Austin Johnson on the Sooners’ opening conference losses: “Losing the first two conference games is tough, but I think we’re going to bounce back. We have a little pressure, but we know as a team we can play better.”

A&M freshman guard Josh Carter on playing time: “I just want to come off the bench, give the team a spark and do what I can to help, whether it’s making shots or feeding to the post to Joe [Jones] or just doing whatever I can defensively.”

A&M Notes: The Aggies are 11-0 at home this season. A win over the Sooners on Saturday would make A&M 2-1 for the first time ever in Big 12 play. A&M is coming off a 79-77 loss at Oklahoma State.

OU Notes: OU leads the Big 12 in rebounding margin (+13.7), free throw accuracy (.746) and offensive rebounding (16.69). The Sooners are coming off a 71-69 loss to Missouri.
