The Texas A&M men's basketball team will look to bounce back against Washington on Tuesday night. The Aggies used a late rally to get back in it against Minnesota Sunday night, but were unable to close out the game. Washington topped Santa Clara in the opening game of the Vancouver Showcase to pick up back-to-back victories.

Texas A&M Quick Hits
• Brandon Mahan led the Aggies with 17 points Sunday night, marking the first time he has reached double figures in the category in an A&M uniform.
• Christian Mekowulu also reached double figures for the first time as he put up 16 points.
• Savion Flagg currently leads the Aggies in scoring and rebounding. He neared his second double-double of the season with nine points and nine boards against Minnesota.
• A&M has seen at least three players score in double figures in each of the team's four games so far. Savion Flagg, TJ Starks and John Walker III have hit double-digits in three of the team's four games.
• Tuesday marks the seventh all-time meeting between the Aggies and Huskies, with the Aggies leading the series 4-2. The two teams last met in 2010 as Texas A&M topped then-No. 21 Washington, 63-62, in College Station. The two teams have met three times in the post season (A&M leads, 2-1) and on one other occasion, Dec. 26, 1963, on a neutral floor. The Aggies came out with a 61-53 win in the game played in Oklahoma City.

Last Time Out
• The Aggies fell to Minnesota, 69-64, Sunday night in their first game at the Vancouver Showcase. They were led by Brandon Mahan, who put up a team-best 17 points, all coming in the second half.
• Texas A&M trailed until there was just inside six minutes to play, going on a 14-2 run to take its first lead since the opening minutes of the game.
• Sophomore Isiah Jasey sparked the run with a big block on the defensive end and then he ran the length of the floor to throw down a dunk.
• Five ties and five lead changes followed the rally, but Minnesota was able to close things out from the free throw line.
