Purdue looked rather impressive in its win over a solid Siena team, while Texas A&M had a nice showing in its victory over Utah St.
With the absence of Robbie Hummel, these teams are relatively evenly matched. Purdue still has talent and experience all over the court, led by junior guard E'Twan Moore and center JaJuan Johnson. Seniors Keaton Grant and Chris Kramer form a solid backcourt.
Texas A&M has been solid all season long and is as battle tested as anybody in the country having played the likes of Kansas (twice), Baylor (twice), Kansas St., West Virginia, Clemson, and Minnesota.
Led by senior guard Donald Sloan, who averages over 18 points per game, Texas A&M will have a little too much for Hummel-less Purdue to handle.
Final Score: Texas A&M 71, Purdue 64
