Running, gunning Arkansas visits defensive-minded Aggies in SEC clash

(RNN) - Arkansas brings a fast-paced style, an 11-2 mark and a seven-game win streak into Reed Arena to face Texas A&M (9-4) in a Southeastern Conference game that will be broadcast at 9 p.m. ET on Fox Sports South.

The Aggies offer a contrast in style, focusing on defense. They are finishing up a three-game homestand and are coming off an easy 63-46 win over UT-San Antonio last Saturday. They are 9-1 on the home hardwood this year.

Against UTSA, junior guard Jamal Jones had a season best 16 points. Fabyon Harris has performed well against Arkansas, scoring 33 points in two games against the Hogs last year.

Arkansas freshman forward Bobby Portis last week earned freshman of the week honors in the SEC for the second time. He leads the team in rebounding with 6.2 boards per game and averages 12.8 points per game, second to sophomore guard Michael Qualls, who scores 13.7 ppg.

The Hogs score 87.2 points per game. They'll be challenged by the Aggies, the second-best defensive team in the SEC allowing 60.6 points per game.
