COMMERCE – The Texas A&M University-Commerce men’s basketball team begins the 2023-24 season in College Station on November 6 against the Texas A&M Aggies, playing in Reed Arena for the first time since 2014.
The Lions, who begin their second season in NCAA Division I, are coming off a season in which they recorded notable non-conference road wins over Air Force and Hawaii, while going 9-9 in Southland Conference play and making the SLC Tournament.
The Aggies went 25-10 last season, making the NCAA Tournament after reaching the SEC Tournament championship game. In the NCAA Tournament, Texas A&M suffered a defeat in the first round to Penn State.
The game on November 6 in Reed Arena serves as the season opener for both teams, tip-off time as well as the television designation will be announced at a later date.
This is the sixth documented meeting between the two schools that are both in the Texas A&M system and the first regular season meeting since 1979. The two teams last met in an exhibition contest in 2014. The Aggies are 2-0 in the series, having won the regular season meetings in 1979 and 1970.
