Aggie Hoops falls from the AP Top 25; lands at #24 in USA Today Coaches poll

New, 11 comments

Two more losses (@ Alabama, @ LSU) saw the Aggies fall from the Top 25 for the first time in ten weeks. The USA Today/Coaches poll placed A&M at #24.

After another 0-2 week, courtesy of losses at Alabama and at LSU, the Aggies fell eleven spots from 15th to an effective 26th (highest in the "receiving votes" category) in the AP poll.

In SEC news, Kentucky defeated Georgia and South Carolina by a combined 61 points and rose eight spots to #14. South Carolina continued to drift just off the pace (sitting in an effective ranking of 28th), while former A&M opponents Texas and Baylor brought up the rear at 24th and 25th, respectively. Iowa State rose one spot to 13th.

In slightly better news, the USA Today/Coaches poll kept the Aggies in their rankings, dropping A&M eleven spots from 13th to 24th. One spot ahead of Texas, who were dealt two road losses (@ISU, @OU) themselves.
