COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- No. 20 Texas A&M looks for its sixth straight win, hosting Vanderbilt in a women’s basketball game at 7:30 Thursday night at Reed Arena. Tickets are still available, starting at $4 for youth and $7 for adults, plus fans can take advantage of $1 hot dogs at the concession stands.

The game is broadcast on SEC Network with Paul Sunderland and Debbie Antonelli on the call. Subscribers can also access the game through WatchESPN and the ESPN app on smartphones, computers, tablets and connected devices (Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick, Apple TV, Chromecast, Roku, Xbox 360 and Xbox One). Radio listeners can hear Tom Turbiville and Tap Bentz on The Zone 1150 AM/102.7 FM in Bryan-College Station, and online at 12thMan.com.

Texas A&M (16-4, 5-2 SEC) enters the game with its longest conference winning streak since the 2016 season, winning its last two games by two points apiece. The Aggies picked up their second Top 15 win of the season Sunday, defeating No. 15 Kentucky 73-71 behind 20 points each from Chennedy Carter and Kayla Wells.

The Aggies defeated Vanderbilt 50-43 in Nashville Jan. 10, marking the Aggies fifth straight win against the Commodores, as Carter led with 27 points. No player on the active roster has lost to Vanderbilt during their A&M career.

Mariella Fasoula and Autumn Newby lead Vanderbilt’s (6-14, 1-6 SEC) frontcourt, as the two combined for 28 of the Commodores’ 43 points and 19 of their 31 rebounds in the January 10 matchup between the two schools. Fasoula leads the Commodores with 17.0 points per game, one of three Vanderbilt players with a scoring average of over 10 points.

Texas A&M is tied for third in the Southeastern Conference standings as the conference season reaches its midway point after Thursday’s games. The top four teams in the league standings receive a double-bye at the SEC Tournament, played March 6-10 in Greenville, S.C.

Texas A&M faculty and staff can purchase tickets for $3 in advance or on gameday. The first 250 students in attendance at the North & South Entrances receive an adidas long sleeve basketball shirt.
