Texas A&M puts improving offense up against lowly Vanderbilt

Texas A&M, winners of three straight for the first time since November, will tangle with a cold-shooting Vanderbilt team on Tuesday in Nashville, Tenn.A month ago, the Aggies scored 53 and 55 points against LSU and Auburn, respectively, in a pair of losses to open SEC play.But last week, Texas A&M (15-8, 6-4 Southeastern Conference) went to last-place Missouri and scored a 79-60 win. It returned home Saturday for an 85-69 blasting of then-No. 6 Tennessee, which is allowing just 68.0 points per game.Wade Taylor (19.9 ppg) has been a consistent scorer for the Aggies, but has had little help.Against Tennessee, Tyrece Radford (15.0) stepped up to score 27 points, marking his third consecutive game scoring at least 22 or more.Aggies coach Buzz Williams said Radford’s resurgence is easy to explain.”I would (attribute) most of it to his ability health-wise,” Williams said of Radford, who’s had difficulty breathing this season. “He’s back and comfortable because of the practices and the games.”When Texas A&M misses, Andersson Garcia has been there to snag 17 offensive rebounds his past two games, chipping in 16 more on defense.
