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.
