On Wednesday, the Georgia basketball squad travels to College Station for a 7:00PM date with Texas A&M. The game can be viewed on SECN.

Georgia can lose this road game and still make the NCAA Tournament. But with the Bulldogs staring at a possible NCAA eight seed, a win could put Georgia on the national radar.

Texas A&M and Georgia are so similar, one team should be selling insurance. Georgia is 15-7, 6-4 in the SEC with 23 RPI. Texas A&M is 16-6, 7-3 in the SEC with a 33 RPI.

The difference in the two team’s seasons is even slimmer than it looks: a Georgia two overtime loss in Baton Rouge to LSU on January 10 and a Texas A&M three point win in Baton Rouge over LSU on January 17.

Georgia gives up 39 percent success on field goal attempts and 30.5 percent success on 3-point attempts to its opponents. Texas A&M gives up 39.4 percent on field goal attempts and 30.8% on 3-point attempts to its opponents. Georgia scores 69.9 points per game, Texas A&M 68.2.

Georgia is the stronger rebounding team, but A&M turns the ball over 2 times less per game – a huge number. On the other hand, Texas A&M shoots free throws poorer than Georgia, 64.2 to 67.9 percent.
