He's also made 73.1 percent of his foul shots this season.

WINLESS WHEN: The Bulldogs are 0-5 when they score 61 points or fewer and 11-4 when they exceed 61 points. The Aggies are 0-7 when allowing 65 or more points and 10-2 on the season, otherwise.

THREAT BEHIND THE ARC: Texas A&M's Wendell Mitchell has attempted 110 3-pointers and connected on 23.6 percent of them, and is 7 for 26 over the last three games.
