Texas A&M vs Florida St: Preview & Prediction

    
March 15th, 2011
(7) Texas A&M vs. (10) Florida St.

Southwest Region - Chicago

March 18 - 4:10 TBS
 

Chicago will feature two defensive slugfests as Texas A&M takes on Florida State in a game that may not reach the 60s. Texas A&M's guards don't have the greatest shooting percentages but Dash Harris and B.J. Holmes find ways to make key plays for head coach Mark Turgeon. Khris Middleton leads the team in scoring and fellow forwards David Lobeau and Nathan Walkup are right behind him. What Middleton does against the Seminoles will be something to watch especially if Chris Singleton is able to return. Derwin Kitchen has stepped up in Singleton's absence but there have been plenty of instances lately where the loss of their leading scorer and rebounder was apparent.
