On the opening weekend of the season, there was no team more impressive than Texas A&M. After a slow start, Texas A&M walked West Virginia down and won going away 88-65 over a team expected to challenge Kansas for the Big XII crown.
Making the victory more impressive is the fact that the Aggies played without sophomore forward Robert Williams and redshirt freshman J.J. Caldwell. It showed the depth that they have and that they may be a real threat to win the SEC this season.
However before they get there, Texas A&M has road games at USC and Arizona and play in the Legends Classic in Brooklyn against Oklahoma St and either Pitt/Penn St. We’re definitely going to find out a lot about the Aggies in November and December.
National Player of the Week: Allonzo Trier, Arizona.
Trier was dominant in two games this weekend averaging 31 points in blowout wins over UMBC and Utah Valley. The first-team All-America candidate is living up to the hype so far.
