The Tigers officially have their first SEC win of the season in the PMAC and it was led by freshman guard, Cam Thomas.
Thomas was on fire and put up a career high of 32 points on the board, and while some may be celebrating, Thomas treats this like any other game.
“I mean if you put in the work that I do, you’d feel like it was just a normal game too, so I put in a lot of work so I feel very confident in my preparation so that’s why I don’t think it’s a big deal because I’m just ready for every game.”
While Thomas led the team in points, Junior Forward Darius Days had his tenth career double-double with 18 points and led the team with 10 rebounds.
The Tigers struggled with rebounding the ball last Saturday against Nicholls State but showed a lot of improvement against the Aggies.
“There’s no more light weights. This is heavyweight fights from here on out, and what we did on Saturday wasn’t going to work. And I thought Nicholls played harder than us. I mean, it shows we can do it. We get out rebounded by Nicholls and we go rebound against a very good A&M team and just pound them on the glass, so it shows we can do it.”
The Tigers improve their overall record to 6-1 and are headed to Gainesville to face the Florida Gators on Saturday at 1p.m., and it will be broadcasted on CBS.
