KINGSVILLE, Texas - The Texas A&M-Kingsville men's basketball team heads to San Angelo for a road conference game against Angelo State on Wednesday night looking to extend its three-game winning streak.
The Javelinas moved to 4-2 in the Lone Star Conference with their third-straight win and are now 8-5 on the season. The Rams are 4-10 overall while 1-5 in the LSC.
Kingsville is coming off a thrilling overtime win at home versus West Texas A&M in which Dytrel Bracey hit a three-point basket with under five second to go for a 64-61 win. The game almost didn't go to OT as West Texas appeared to have scored at the end of regulation but the shot was waved off.
