OSU Basketball: Cowboys Fall To No. 16 Texas A&M

The Aggies (3-0) will try to adapt further with Williams back in the lineup when they face another unbeaten team, Penn State (5-0), in the championship game Tuesday.

The university announced Jeffrey Carroll will no longer be withheld from play ahead of Monday's matchup with Texas A&M in Brooklyn, N.Y. Carroll did not play in the Cowboys' first three games because of an ongoing review of the program. We can play small.

PENN STATE: It may be a fun winter in Happy Valley, and not just because of the nationally ranked football team.

Texas A&M got to 3-0 by beating West Virginia (88-65), UCSB (84-65) and then Oklahoma State.

Penn State is 4-0 ATS in their last 4 non-conference games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 neutral site games while the under is 4-0 in their last 4 games following a win. The public betting is strongly with Texas A&M tonight, but I like Oklahoma State to cover. The Nittany Lions' largest margin of victory was 74, in an 86-12 win over Susquehanna on January 25, 1919, while Pittsburgh dropped a program-worst 106-13 decision to Westminster on February 24, 1906. Tony Carr led the group of 6 Lions to finish in double figures scoring with 16 points on 6 of 9 shooting, including a ideal 4 for 4 from behind the arc along with a team-high 5 assists.

Penn State's largest margin of victory against Pittsburgh was 84-44 on January 14, 1967. "They played very aggressively and they played very well". "It will be a challenge, but our guys will be ready".


Penn State shot 57.6 percent from the field in the win against the Panthers.

He made all six of his field-goal attempts against Pitt (1-3). Hogg leads the team with 20.3 points per game while Gilder leads the team with 5.3 assists per game and Tyler Davis leads the team in rebounding with 9 boards per game this season.

"We have great chemistry".

Penn State will trust sophomore Tony Carr to power the offense. "Winning a championship in any tournament means everything".

Texas A&M: There is a reason SEC and national media pieced Texas A&M to finish third in a preseason poll.
