KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Texas A&M will play without starting point guard Dash Harris because of a bone bruise in his right wrist suffered in the regular-season finale at Oklahoma, combined with ongoing tendinitis in the same wrist.
The fourth-seeded Aggies face No. 12 Nebraska at 2:05 p.m. in the quarterfinal round.
Harris averages 26.4 minutes and led the Big 12 in assist-to-turnover ratio before the tendinitis kicked in in early February. Harris was averaging 5.0 points and 3.0 assists, but more important, he's the club's floor lead. B.J. Holmes will get his fourth start of the year in Harris' place. Holmes, a 37.8-percent 3-point shooter, is averaging 9.2 points a game.
