Texas A&M: The Aggies are looking to rebound after a 58-51 loss at Baylor on Saturday that ended their five-game winning streak. Texas A&M is currently third in the Big 12 standings and averages 69.4 points while allowing 60.5. The Aggies are led by Middleton, who is the player most capable of creating his own offense. Loubeau gives Middleton a solid complimentary player inside. Mostly, though, the Aggies have been winning with defense.

Kansas: With a win tonight, the Jayhawks can claim at least a share of their seventh straight Big 12 regular-season title. With wins over Texas A&M and Missouri on Saturday, Kansas will win the title outright for the third straight season (KU could split the games and win the title outright if Texas loses Saturday at Baylor). Tuesday night, KU junior guard Tyshawn Taylor was reinstated after being suspended last Monday for violating team rules. Tonight is senior night, and Reed, Morningstar and Little will play in Allen Fieldhouse for the last time. The traditional senior speeches will be made after the game.

RPIs as of Tuesday: A&M 30, KU 2.
