Texas can clinch share of Big 12 title with win over Colorado

No. 7 Texas (24-4) at Texas AM (18-7) 8:00 pm EST

COLLEGE STATION, Texas (Ticker) -- Texas AM is looking to extend its winning streak to six games and give its NCAA tournament hopes a major boost. Texas has a much bigger goal in mind.

The seventh-ranked Longhorns will attempt to clinch at least a share of the Big 12 Conference title for the first time since 1999 on Wednesday when they face the surging Aggies.

Texas (24-4, 12-2 Big 12) matched the school record for victories with Saturday's resounding 80-55 victory over then-No. 18 Kansas.

P.J. Tucker collected 19 points, eight rebounds and seven assists and LaMarcus Aldridge added 18 points and eight boards for the Longhorns, who shot 55 percent and held a 36-19 rebounding advantage in winning for the seventh time in eight games.

However, Texas AM (18-7, 8-6) is playing some pretty good basketball of its own as it possesses the longest current winning streak in the Big 12. The Aggies have not lost since an 83-70 defeat against the Longhorns on February 4.

Acie Law scored 19 points and Chris Walker added 12 as Texas AM recorded a 66-55 win over Nebraska on Saturday. The Aggies are 15-2 at home this season and upset Texas here last year, 74-63, behind 24 points from Law.
