COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) -- Texas A&M followed its big win at Kentucky with two straight losses, and the young team is trying to get back on track when it travels to LSU on Wednesday.

The Aggies need to string some wins together in Southeastern Conference play to avoid missing the NCAA tournament for the second straight year.

A&M is trying to bounce back from last year's 14-18 season that snapped a streak of six straight appearances in the NCAA tournament. The Aggies fell apart in Big 12 play, going 4-14.

They're 12-5 this season and already have two conference wins, beating Arkansas and Kentucky to start their first season in the SEC and extend their winning streak to four games. They were then blown out by No. 8 Florida and lost by one point to Alabama.
