6 – Field goals in the first half of the men’s basketball game against Kansas State, A&M’s lowest offensive output in Big 12 play this year. The Aggies had seven field goals in the first half at Kansas on Jan. 19.

2-8 — The Big 12 South’s record against the Big 12 North in men’s basketball games played since Jan. 31. Oklahoma is the only South squad to win a game against the North, going 2-0 in that span. Texas, meanwhile, is 0-3, with two losses coming at home.

43 – Margin of victory for the women’s basketball team against Nebraska on Sunday. It was A&M’s largest margin of victory ever in a Big 12 game.

28 – Turnovers forced by the Aggie defense against the Huskers, the most turnovers by Nebraska this season.

61.0 – Shooting percentage by A&M against Nebraska, the team’s highest of the year. It was the Aggies best shooting night since connecting on 63.8 percent against McNeese State on Nov. 21, 2006.

7 – Home runs by the softball team during its weekend tournament. The Aggies went 3-1 to claim the tourney title, outscoring the opposition 22-4.
