COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) - Texas A&M followed its big win at Kentucky with two straight losses, and the young team is trying to get back on track when it travels to LSU on Wednesday.
The Aggies need to string some wins together in Southeastern Conference play to avoid missing the NCAA tournament for the second straight year.
Second-year coach Billy Kennedy says that his goal every season is to make the tournament. He says reaching it this year is going to be difficult.
Texas A&M is trying to bounce back from last year's 14-18 season, which broke a streak of six straight appearances in the NCAA tournament. Kennedy hopes the team, which has only three seniors, can become more consistent as the season progresses.
