Green Bay guard Carrington Love, who came into the tournament averaging more than 17 points a game, has yet to score against Texas A&M. The Aggies' size and length has clearly hampered Love and the Phoenix at the offensive end.

The Aggies have begun protecting the ball, and without transition baskets, Green Bay's offense has fallen apart. The Phoenix went the final 5:19 of the first half without a field goal. Texas A&M in command at half, up 41-33.

Green Bay's pressure has overwhelmed Texas A&M so far. The Aggies have committed five turnovers over the last 2:53. Green Bay up 20-14.

To upset Texas A&M, Green Bay will need to force the deliberate Aggies into an uptempo game. If Green Bay can force the Aggies into turnovers and get dynamic scorer Carrington Love going offensively, the Phoenix could be dangerous.

Up-tempo pace won't save No. 14 Green Bay

The Phoenix play at a feverish pace and are quicker on offensive possessions than any team in the country. While Green Bay's frantic intensity can be effective, it can also be an albatross against superior competition like No. 3 A&M.
