The Arkansas Basketball team (13-5) hosts Texas A&M (15-3) in a prime-time game on the SEC Network Jan. 22.
The Razorbacks are enjoying a three-game winning streak, including a massive upset win at No. 12 LSU. Texas A&M is coming off a tough loss against Kentucky at home in College Station.
This game against the Aggies will be a litmus test of sorts to see if the Hogs have actually turned the corner on their season or if they caught some teams on a bad night.
Hopefully the Razorbacks can find some small amount of success shooting the three, they snapped a years-long streak of making at least one three in a game when they failed to do so against South Carolina earlier this week.
Let’s take a look at what to expect in this exciting SEC match-up.

Arkansas vs Texas A&M Prediction Today
The Razorbacks are likely going to have a tough time scoring the ball against Texas A&M’s stringent defense. The Aggies allow their opponents to score just 62.9 ppg this season.
The Hogs will put that to the test with their high-scoring, three-point shy offense that scores 79.3 ppg.
Jaylin Williams, aka Mr. Do Everything, is going to be a pivotal part of the game plan against the Aggies. He draws charges, he blocks shots and rebounds— what can’t this talented young man do?
Senior Chris Lykes has to step-up for the Razorbacks. He’s been in an incredibly bad rut, scoring just 3.6 ppg in the past five games. This is the same guy who has dropped 13 or more points in nine games this season.
The Hogs will have to find a way to slow down the red-hot Henry Coleman III from Texas A&M. The sophomore out of Richmond, Virginia is averaging 18 points, 6.4 rebounds and 1.4 steals per game in the month of January.
Prediction: Razorbacks 81, Aggies 75
