Vanderbilt WBB Preview: Texas A&M

The Vanderbilt Commodore women host 12th ranked Texas A&M on Sunday at Memorial Gym. Here's your VandyMania.com preview of the Aggies.

Texas A&M played a tough non-conference schedule with wins at Cal, Duke and Oklahoma.  The Aggies are currently riding a four game win streak, the latest victory coming over LSU.

Guard Courtney Walker, a two-time First Team All-SEC Selection,  leads the Aggies in scoring. Walker scored 17 points in the recent victory over LSU.   Guard/forward Courtney Williams is the team's second-leading scorer. 

A&M has four players making over 35 percent of their three-point attempts.  Guard Jordan Jones has made the most three pointers on the team by far.  Six-foot-5 center Khaalia Hillsman is the team's top shooter from the field. 

Looking at some of the non-scoring stat leaders, Walker and forward Anriel Howard lead the team in rebounding.  Jones is tops on the team in assists and steals.  Six-foot-7 center Rachel Mitchell has the most blocks. 

Comparing Vandy and A&M stat wise, the Aggies score more points, get more rebounds, have more assists, less turnovers, make more steals and block more shots.  Vandy allows fewer points and shoots better. A&M has the stronger RPI. 

This is another tough match-up for Vandy. A&M is big and strong inside while Vandy relies on shooting and precision play to score. To win the Commodore women need at least three players to make multiple threes while the team also has to play tough defensively. 

Sunday's game tips off at 4 pm central time and can be seen on the SEC Network.

For VandyMania.com and Scout, this is Don Yates.
