Texas A&M Head Coach Billy Gillispie on the Aggies' improvement: "I think that we've definitely made some strides, but I think everyone's kind of in shock because I don't think anyone really expected us to do anything, even though I'm not overstating what we've done. That's what every basketball coach wants to do. Every coach wants to make a difference. I really firmly believe in what I think we can do here…."
Gillispie on the Reed Arena crowd: "You've got to win your home games in conference to have any chance to be a postseason team. That's what I think they have lacked here. The support has been fantastic but they've got to keep coming and we're going to keep on playing hard. Then it gives your team a chance to be competitive at home and be right there."
A familiar face: Former A&M head coach, Melvin Watkins, will make his first return trip to College Station after heading the Aggies' hoops program for six seasons. Watkins now serves as associate head coach to MU's Quin Snyder. The former A&M coach made his feelings clear about the upcoming trip: "This is not a social visit. We're going down on business to get a win."
MU Note: Mizzou is coming off of a tough Monday night loss to Kansas. The Tigers fell to the Jayhawks 73-61 at Lawrence, KS.
