February 8, 2021

During Monday's edition of TexAgs Radio, Richard Zane joined to take us Around Aggieland and provided updates from the hardwood, the track, and beyond following a busy weekend for the Maroon & White.

Women’s Basketball (18-1, 9-1 in SEC play)
No. 7 Texas A&M took down No. 16 Arkansas, 69-67, on Sunday afternoon in a thriller.

  • Just as she did in the first matchup between the Ags and Hogs in January, Jordan Nixon played hero as she hit a game-winning layup with eight seconds to play. Nixon finished with just five points
  • Kayla Wells scored a game-high 21 points.
  • Aaliyah Wilson registered a double-double with 14 points and 10 rebounds.
  • Ciera Johnson added 13 points.

It was announced following the recording of this edition of Around Aggieland that Texas A&M’s next contest will be against the Tennessee Volunteers on Sunday, February 14. This is a rescheduled contest after the Dec. 31 and Feb. 7 dates were postponed. The Ags and Lady Vols will tip-off at 2:00 p.m. CT on ESPN.
