 PROBABLE STARTERS

Dec 15, 2012; Oklahoma City, OK, USA; Texas A

 

#12 – G FABYON HARRIS – JR 5’11, 173
10.2 PPG, 1.8 RPG, 1.3 APG

After not playing at all the past two years, Harris has been a much needed surprise in scoring.  He is hitting 42.9% of his three pointers and has averaged 12.4 points over his last five games.  Other than scoring, he’s not a great rebounder and really not a great passer.  He has more TO’s than assists on the year.  Key probably is to keep him from getting open beyond the arc, but at 5’11, Kentucky should have the length to shut him down.  Thing is, a guy like this will come at you all night and is good at drawing fouls.

#11 – G  J’MYCHAL REESE – FR  6’1, 177
7.6 PPG, 2.8 RPG, 2.7 APG

Reese is really struggling with his shot right now and has gone 3-19 (15.7%) over his last three games and averaged 5 points a game. That said, he is hitting 37% of his three pointers on the season and could be ready to get untracked again. He can get hot though and has four double digit scoring games on the year, but just one in his last six games.

#31 – G  ELSTON TURNER – SR 6’5, 209
15.5 PPG, 3.6 RPG, 2.8 APG

Turner has really been the best player on the Aggies the last couple of seasons after transferring from Washington.  He is hitting  43.4% of his three pointers and is attempting about six shots from long range a game.  He’s a consistent scorer and is pretty much a lock to get double digits in points.  He has two games with 26 points on the year.  He’s also a decent rebounder and passer, but is counted on to score for the Aggies.

#32 – F KOURTNEY ROBERSON – SO 6’9, 238
6.2 PPG, 6.2 RPG, 0.4 APG

Roberson is pretty much a workman grinder as he will battle for the boards and his scoring is limited to maybe a 10 foot radius of the basket. He is pretty efficient near the basket, hitting 59.3% of his FG’s, but don’t expect him to carry the load. He tends to get lost in the offensive scheme and has four games this year where he did not make any FG’s. That said, he is coming off his first double double of the season.

#35 – F  RAY TURNER – SR  6’9, 233
11.8 PPG, 6.7 RPG, 0.1 APG

Turner is not flashy but he gets the job done. He is good offensively around the basket (58.7%) but does not have much range. He has one double double on the year and can disappear at times from the boards. He is prone to foul trouble has he has at least 3 fouls in 11 games and more than three in five games.
