Lexington: Aggies Hold 13

By - March 15, 2007

After opening a 31-16 lead with a Bryan Davis put-back dunk -- TAMU's largest lead of the game at 15 points -- Penn's Ibby Jaaber deposited an acrobatic driving lay-up with under a minute remaining to close out the scoring and pull the Quakers within 13 points at the break.

A quick glance at the halftime box shows that the Aggies should be winning this game by a much wider margin. TAMU is shooting 48.1 percent from the field (compared to Penn's icy 29.6 percent clip) and holds a 21-10 advantage on the glass. But the Quakers have limited their turnovers (five) and controlled the tempo to keep the deficit negotiable.

The Aggies didn't really wear down the Quakers as much as they could have -- so I don't see Penn getting too tired during the second half. All the Ivy champs would need to put a scare into TAMU is a hot hand. Will they get one? (Mark Zoller?)
