Texas A&M stays unbeaten with 75-59 road win at USC

In News by Blake Lovell

No. 16 Texas A&M stayed unbeaten by scoring a 75-59 road victory at No. 10 USC.

The Aggies had five players score in double figures and held the Trojans to just 28.2 percent shooting from the field.

D.J. Hogg led the way for Texas A&M with 15 points and eight rebounds while Duane Wilson added 13 points.

Tyler Davis, Tonny Trocha-Morelos, and T.J. Starks each scored 10 for the Aggies.

Texas A&M grabbed a 52-39 advantage in total rebounds.

Lovell’s Analysis

In case anyone had any questions about how good the Aggies were, this should have sent the answer.

This team is incredibly talented, and the freshman group is adding a ton of depth to the roster.

And considering that J.J. Caldwell has only played two games and has essentially been nothing more than a role player, it makes it all the more impressive.

Of course, after beating teams like West Virginia and USC, Texas A&M will get another shot next week when it plays Arizona. And although the Wildcats are out of the Top 25 after a rough week in the Bahamas, it’s still another opportunity for Billy Kennedy’s squad to earn a high-quality win.

A lot of SEC teams have looked good thus far, but few can match what the Aggies have accomplished.

This team is for real and will get even better as the season goes along.

And that’s a scary thought for the rest of the teams in the conference.
