Texas A&M Vs. Oklahoma State Preview: Aggies Still Winning Ugly

I said it before, but the Texas A&M Aggies are treading on thin ice, as they travel to Stillwater to face the Oklahoma St. Cowboys.

The Aggies keep winning, and are currently third in the conference, but their games aren't good for fans with heart problems. In their past two game, they defeated the bottom two teams in conference by a total of eight points. Their two games before that? An overtime win and an overtime loss. The two games before that? Consecutive losses.

You get the point. A&M is winning, but it ain't pretty.

Their opponent, Oklahoma State, well, they aren't the hottest team in the conference either. The Cowboys have lost two straight and five of their past seven. The cards might be stacked against Ok State, though, as the last time they played, well, Ok State didn't really play, losing 71-48 in College Station.

This should be a knock em down, drag em out type of game. Since neither team is really flashy the game will come down to which team can execute the half-court offense better. For my money, I'd have to say that A&M has the edge, but being bearish on them for a while I don't expect them winning by more than a basket.

Khris Middleton leads A&M in scoring with 14.9 ppg. Marshall Moses tops Ok State at 14.7 ppg.
