Texas A&M’s Mr. Big Shot: Andre Gordon



TX – Texas A&M sophomore guard Andre Gordon described the Aggies’ ideal positioning late in what became their second SEC victory on Wednesday at Mississippi State.

“We had everyone where they needed to be,” Gordon said, “and it worked out toward the end of the game.”

Chief among the solid setup was Gordon receiving the ball — this time on an alley-oop pass from Savion Flagg pushing A&M to a one-point lead with 2:38 remaining. Forty-six second later, Gordon coolly sank a 3-pointer ultimately proving the difference in the Aggies’ 56-55 comeback victory.

A&M, which hosts No. 17 Missouri at noon Saturday in Reed Arena, has two SEC victories in five tries — and Gordon has made the game-winning shots in both. It’s no coincidence.

“He’s not scared, and I’m not implying that anybody else on our team is scared,” A&M coach Buzz Williams said. “… (But) it just speaks to his toughness.”
