Thu, 24 Feb 2011 12:16 PM EST

TEXAS LONGHORNS (18-3, 6-0 in Big 12)

at TEXAS A&M AGGIES (17-3, 4-2 in Big 12)

Tip-off: Monday, 9:00 p.m. EDT
Line: Texas -1.5, Total: 129

Texas A&M looks to extend its home winning streak against Texas when the two rivals meet on Monday night.

The Aggies have won six straight over the Longhorns in College Station and will look for payback after Texas won, 81-60, on Jan. 19 — its ninth straight win in the series in Austin. The Horns shot a season-best 58.0% and held Texas A&M to 41.5% rom the field in that game. The Aggies are also looking to rebound from a 57-48 loss at Nebraska on Saturday. Nebraska limited A&M to just 24% shooting in the second half and 39.1% shooting for the game. Nathan Walkup (9.9 PPG, 5.8 RPG) led the Aggies with 13 points, while leading scorer Khris Middleton (15.9 PPG, 4.8 RPG, 40.0% three-pointers) chipped in with 12, but is hitting just 7-of-19 FG in his past two games. David Loubeau, the second-leading scorer on the team, (10.7 PPG, 5.2 RPG) had only seven points versus the Cornhuskers and has scored just 19 combined points in the past three games, while shooting 7-for-23 from the field. Odds.

Texas is aiming for its seventh straight win overall and is off to its best conference start (6-0) since Big 12 play began in 1996-97. And once again, it has relied on its stellar defense to lead the way. The Longhorns have held their first 21 opponents to an average of 60.5 PPG on 36.6% shooting, including 27.9% from long range. Texas has held 14 of 21 teams below 40% shooting and four below 30% shooting. And in six conference games, the Horns have limited opponents to an average of 54.2 PPG on 36.9% shooting, including 18-of-88 (20.5%) from three-point range. They have won their six league games by an average of 18.5 PPG and are coming off a 71-58 victory over Missouri on Saturday. The Longhorns limited the league’s highest-scoring team (83.7 PPG) to its lowest point total and lowest FG Pct. (33.9%) of the season. Texas is led by Jordan Hamilton (19.0 PPG, 7.6 RPG, 42.4% three-pointers), who’s had six double-doubles this season and has topped the 20-point mark in nine of 21 games. Hamilton had a game-high 27 in Texas’ rout against A&M two weeks ago and scored 16 points with a career-high 13 boards versus the Tigers on Saturday. Tristan Thompson (12.9 PPG, 7.6 RPG, 2.2 BPG) scored nine points against Mizzou, which ended his double-digit scoring streak at nine games. Thompson did finish with 13 rebounds and also tallied 18 points and six boards in the first meeting with A&M.

Texas owns a 133-85 advantage against Texas A&M in the all-time series. The Horns are 19-7 versus the Aggies during the Rick Barnes era and have won 38 of the past 47 meetings between the two schools. However, Texas A&M holds a 55-50 advantage in games played in College Station and has held Texas to an average of 62.5 PPG and 37.3% shooting during its six-game win streak over the Horns at College Station. The Aggies have also won 14 straight and 30-of-31 at Reed Arena. They are 11-5 ATS (69%) in home contests over the past two seasons and has held visiting teams to 38.7% FG this season. Both these teams hit the boards hard, but the Aggies have an 11.9 RPG margin as compared to Texas’ +7.2 rebounding advantage on the season. These two FoxSheets trends support picking Texas A&M to win its seventh straight home game against its rival on Monday. Scores.
