Still weird to think they're not in the Big XII.

Daniel Shirey-USA TODAY Sports

Who?The Aggies of Texas A&M.

What? Named for the Agricultural portion of Agricultural and Mechanical. Reveille is the highest-ranking member of the famed Corps of Cadets.

Where? College Station, Texas, which got the school fairly early in its existence.

When? Why? Excellent season.

How? They were an at-large selection.

Surprise? Predicted to finish fifth in the conference, they came in third.

RPI: 12

SOS: 14

Record: 24-8 (13-3 SEC)

Good wins: South Carolina.

Bad losses: At St. John's. I mean, nothing here is heinous.

Who's running this show? Gary Blair, since 2003.

Extra, Extra! The Dallas Morning News, maybe? Looks like The Eagle is a better bet. But the best bet of all is our buddies over at Good Bull Hunting, who can tell you all about the bouncyball.

The Courtneys are coming! The Courtneys are coming! The pair of sophomores lead the Aggies in scoring, guard Courtney Walker with 15.2 and guard/forward Courtney Williams with 13.7. Senior center Karla Gilbert is a big body in the middle, putting up 11.3 points on 61.6% shooting to go with 7.4 rebounds, and junior Achiri Ade complements her with seven boards per game. Sophomore point guard Jordan Jones finds the open player on a regular basis, averaging over seven assists. There's a lot to like about this Aggie squad.
