Tennessee-Texas A&M series has plenty of spice
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Texas A&M and Tennessee are only in their second season as conference foes, yet they've already produced a couple of memorable confrontations.
Tennessee won 93-85 at Texas A&M last season in a four-overtime marathon that was the longest game in Volunteers basketball history. Texas A&M earned revenge last month when Antwan Space sank a 3-pointer with 4.4 seconds left to give the Aggies a 57-56 victory at Tennessee after they'd trailed virtually the entire game.
Space says the series has "pretty much become a rivalry" in a short time.
The two teams meet again Saturday at Texas A&M.
Tennessee (16-10, 7-6 SEC) needs a victory to boost its NCAA tournament hopes and also wants to make amends for its collapse against Texas A&M (15-11, 6-7) last month.
