Texas A&M preview




The Florida Gators play in a massive bubble game tonight at 7 pm est in College Station. Texas A&M comes in ranked 73rd in the NET so for the time being this is a quadrant one game for the Gators, but if the Gators were to win this game A&M probably falls below the 75 NET ranking. Texas A&M and Florida are very similar teams on paper each team turns it over a ton, but to negate that they force a ton of turnovers, each team struggles mightily on the defensive glass, but are each in the top 50 in offensive rebound percentage. Texas A&Ms best player is Henry Coleman 6'8 forward transfer from Duke, not much of a perimeter threat, but the Gators will have their hands full against him in the post. Florida should be able to exploit this match-up with 6'11 forward Colin Castleton. With the Gator's best ball handler Tyre Appleby questionable senior guards Brandon McKissic, and Myreon Jones are going to have to pick up a large amount of the ball-handling responsibilities for the Gators if Appleby cant go. Ultimately I think the Gators will win this game I know the players understand the importance of this game if they would like to participate in the NCAA Tournament I got the Gators winning in a close one 68-63.
