Texas Aggies Advance to Second Round for Fifth Straight Year

I didn’t get to see the game, Kingdom work was being done… but my Aggies advanced to the second round of the NCAA play offs for the fifth straight year in a row! Read it here.  

Texas A&M (24-9) advanced to the second round for the fifth consecutive year and will face No. 4 seed Purdue on Sunday.
Middleton scored 14 points in the first half as Texas A&M built a 42-29 lead and shut down the normally efficient Utah State offense. Utah State never got untracked, shooting 38 percent — well below their season average of 49 percent — and scored 20 points below their season average.”We haven’t played anybody as good as Texas A&M,” Utah State coach Stew Morrill said. “Texas A&M physically dominated us.”David Loubeau added 12 points and B.J. Holmes had 11 for Texas A&M, which also dominated the rebounding.”It all came down to defense,” A&M coach Mark Turgeon said. “I was on them pretty hard in practice this week. We did it one game. Now we have to do it again on Sunday.”
