Will Wade and the Tigers improve to 23-5 overall and 13-2 in conference play tonight with a comfortable win over Texas A&M. After scoring just one-point vs. Tennessee, Naz Reid led LSU in scoring with another double-double.

Tremont Waters(illness) did not play tonight for the second-straight game.

“It was good to have Tre back on the bench. He’s doing much better. It was our call to sit him tonight. He’s not 100 percent, but he’s close. He probably could’ve played a little tonight, but he hasn’t practiced,” said Wade postgame.
