Texas A&M held a 56-35 rebounding advantage for the game.
"They're long and athletic," Tidwell said of the Aggies. "We knew we would have trouble against them."
Lamar returns to action at 2:05 p,m, Saturday when it hosts Southeastern Louisiana in the Montagne Center in the Southland Conference opener for both teams. The game will be broadcast live on Lamar's athletic Web site: www.lamarcardinals.com.
