They are a lot like LSU on defense. They have a lot of length and block 15% of opponents 2pt shots. The guys to watch out for are junior F Roberson (6'9 244) averaging 10.4 ppg and 7.7 rpg, 6'8 (yes 6'8) G Jones averaging 10.9 ppg, 6'5 G Caruso averaging 9.3 ppg 5.1 apg and 2.4 spg.
They are pretty weak on offense, but their defense can be stifling. One way to attack them is to shoot more threes. We take way too many 2 pt shots for how inefficient we are, and A&M does leave the three point shot open a good bit.
Still need to attack the rim, but I'd like to see us shoot 20 or so 3's this game if they are good shots.
