Five-OT game to be shown

March 5, 2008


— The first Baylor-Texas A&M; meeting was the best game of the season that nobody saw.

Baylor outlasted Texas A&M; in January, winning 116-110 in five overtimes behind a career-high 36 points from Curtis Jerrells. But if you weren't there, you didn't see it, thanks to an unlikely set of circumstances that left this game with no television coverage.

The rematch tonight will be on national TV, and, finally, so will the original. ESPN Classic has pieced together a complete game telecast using footage from Texas A&M;'s in-arena cameras that the school uses to show games on its Jumbotron. The network then matched the game footage with play-by-play and commentary from the Aggies' radio broadcasters.

The original game will air on ESPN Classic at 5 p.m., followed by the rematch at 8 p.m. CST on ESPN2.
