Battle for New York: Texas A&M Aggies vs. Washington State Cougars in NIT Tournament Semifinals

“New York is where we need to be,” Texas A&M guard Quenton Jackson said after Wednesday’s easy 67-52 win over Wake Forest in the NIT tournament. “New York is where we need to handle business.” 

The win over Wake Forest booked A&M on a one-way business trip to Madison Square Garden to prove the NCAA selection committee wrong. Even after the Aggies’ tournament hopes experienced a gut-wrenching end two weeks ago, the focus has remained on the job at hand. 

The Washington State Cougars now stand in the way of an A&M team that has nothing to lose and everything to prove. The two teams meet Tuesday night in New York City for only the third time ever, with the all-time series split 1-1.
