Aggie Men To Host SFA In Hoops Tuesday At Reed Arena

By  | 

COLLEGE STATION -- The Texas A&M men's basketball team will be back on the court Tuesday night when they host Stephen F. Austin.

Sunday afternoon the Aggies posted a convincing win over Arkansas Pine Bluff 76-47.

One of the changes this season in men's basketball is the three point line. It's been moved back a foot, but that didn't keep Josh Carter from knocking down 5 triples as he led the Aggies with 23 points in their season opening victory.

Since arriving on campus, Josh has been able to knock it down from the outside. This season there's an emphasis for Josh to improve his inside game and make him a threat where-ever he has the ball.

"We're using him in different ways this year," said Texas A&M Men's Head Basketball Coach Mark Turgeon. "We're running some good stuff for him and guys are finding him and we're screening for him, but we're also trying to get him into the post some."

Carter needs 5 three-point field goals to break Bernard King's school career record of 232. Carter is second with 227 three-pointers. Carter is the most accurate three-point shooter in school history, making 42.8 percent. He led the nation in 2006-07 by making 50.0 percent.

The Lumberjacks finished 26-6 last season, winning the Southland Conference regular-season title with a 13-3 mark. SFA advanced to the NIT, its first postseason tournament appearance since 1987.
