It's that time again! Aggie Basketball starts tomorrow! Possibly the only thing that gets me through the cold Logan winters, are those amazing nights in the The Spectrum! Hands down the best basketball atmosphere this side of the Mississippi. Don't believe me? Watch this!
With only Gary Wilkinson graduating, four starters from last years WAC Championship team are returning! Last year everyone was worried how good this team would be after Jaycee Carroll left. All they did was win 30 games and the first outright WAC Championship in school history. The team has looked very impressive in two exhibition wins, beating NNU 85-51 and Trinity Western 65-40. The same Trinity Western that beat Utah Valley and jumped out to an 8-0 lead against rival BYU earlier in the week. Sure its only exhibition but using the Trinity Western formula the Ags have a 7 point advantage over that team from down south. Both games were played with out starter Pooh Williams, the team only looks to get better with his return. Gary and back-up SG Stavon Williams will both be missed from last years team but I believe this team has what it takes. I really have liked what I've seen from F Nate Bendall and G Preston Medlin in the two games.
So here are my predictions for the year: 25+ Wins, WAC Regular Season Champions, 2nd Round of the NCAA Tournament. I can't wait to watch it all go down. The dunks, the threes, the singing of the Scotsman after beating the Cougs on my birthday.. It's going to be great!
Go Aggies, Go Aggies, Hey, Hey, Hey!
