22. Texas A&M Aggies – 7-2
After a strong start to the season, the Aggies took a bump in the road, losing 2 of its last 3 games. The good news for them is that their lone opponent this week was a DePaul squad that was 1-6 to start the season, including several losses to mid-major programs.
The game went as expected but even the biggest Texas A&M fans didn’t expect a 60-point first-half effort. But it’s also a testament to how bad the Blue Demons truly are, even though they did bounce back to beat Louisville at home this week, though it’s also a testament to how bad Coach Kenny Payne’s squad is too.
The final score was 89-64 in the Aggies’ favor. Six players were in double figures, led by 14 pts from Jace Carter. Wade Taylor dished out six assists, while forward Henry Coleman III was a rebound shy of a double-double. Guards Manny Obaseki and Bryce Lindsay chipped in with 20 pts combined off the bench.
Texas A&M has a big challenge on its hands this Sunday afternoon, taking on Memphis at home. The next game could be its toughest of the season overall, as the Aggies have a Saturday date with Houston to deal with.
