COLLEGE STATION — The Texas A&M Aggies went on a 10-0 run in the final two minutes of Saturday’s game to earn their second Southeastern Conference win over Georgia at Reed Arena.

 

Down 62-53, the Bulldogs committed four turnovers that helped the Aggies spark a comeback. Texas A&M was also aided by a clock malfunction with 5.6 seconds remaining in the ballgame. As Georgia guard J.J. Frazier dribbled around at the top of the key, the clock froze, and the Bulldogs guard perceived he had more time and passed to big man Yante Maten, who was fouled going to the basket and would have shot two free throws. Instead, the officials convened and determined that more than six seconds had transpired while the clock froze, and thus the foul did not count and the ballgame was over.

Texas A&M Aggies men’s basketball coach Billy Kennedy took part in the Southeastern Conference Men’s Basketball Teleconference on Monday. Here is what Coach Kennedy talked about as they prepare to face Arkansas Tuesday, Jan. 17 at 6:00 p.m., which you can hear on 94.1 FM ESPN Texarkana.

 

WHAT ARE YOUR COMMENTS ON YOUR GAME TOMORROW WITH ARKANSAS? — “Coming off a tough loss against a really good Mississippi State team; well-coached defensively. Their guard play is really good. I thought they did a really good job pressuring us and getting us off our offense and some of the things we were able to do. The environment there is a great home-court advantage. I thought we played well and gave ourselves a chance to win. Late in the second half, the turnovers. [Quinndary] Weatherspoon and [Lamar] Peters just made plays on both ends of the floor. The three that Weatherspoon made, the play clock was behind him. Peters taking the ball from our guys and making all of their free throws was pretty impressive for how young their guards are and how well they played.”

Patriots down Texans to make AFC title game

 

By: Associated Press

 

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — The New England Patriots are headed back to a familiar spot: the AFC championship game.

 

Dion Lewis had a 13-yard touchdown reception, a 98-yard kickoff return for a score, and a late 1-yard touchdown to help the Patriots hold off the Houston Texans 34-16 on Saturday night and advance to an NFL-record sixth straight conference title game.

Lewis became the fifth Patriots player to score three touchdowns in a playoff game. He’s also the first player in the Super Bowl era to score on a rush, a catch and a kick return in a postseason game.

Falcons power past Seahawks to reach NFC championship game

 

By: Associated Press

 

Matt Ryan hardly resembled a quarterback who can’t win the big games.

 

No, this looked more like an MVP.

Returning to the postseason for the first time in four years, Ryan threw for 338 yards and three touchdowns to lead the Atlanta Falcons past the Seattle Seahawks 36-20 in the divisional round Saturday.

 

The Falcons are headed to the NFC championship game for only the fourth time in their 51-year history, and they’re on quite a roll with Matty Ice at the helm.
