Oklahoma Vs. Texas A&M: Game Preview, TV Info And More

In a game between a program trending up and one trending down, No. 8 seed Oklahoma plays No. 9 seed Texas A&M in the first round of the Big 12 Tournament on Wednesday.

The winner will face No. 1 seed Kansas on Thursday.

After making six consecutive NCAA Tournaments and being discussed as a possible contender for the Big 12 title, Texas A&M has regressed considerably in their first year under new coach Billy Kennedy.

Kennedy was diagnosed with Parkinson's before the season started, while their best player, junior F Khris Middleton, has struggled since undergoing knee surgery in November. As a result, the Aggies haven't been able to generate enough offense to remain competitive in the Big 12, finishing the regular season with a 13-17 record and a 4-12 mark in-conference.

Oklahoma, meanwhile, has rebounded from the epic collapse of the program under former coach Jeff Capel, with new coach Lon Kruger leading them to a 15-15 record in his first season in Norman.

The two schools split the season series, with both teams holding serve in games that weren't decided until the final moments.

The 6:00 PM game will be broadcast regionally on the Big 12 Network.
