Instant Reaction: Aggies upset #10 Gonzaga

This basketball thing is fun again!

Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

The Aggies stayed hot in the Bahamas and upset #10 Gonzaga in a 62-61 victory. This team is a lot of fun to watch, and back-to-back wins over Texas and Gonzaga are turning heads in the Aggie fanbase. The Aggies await the outcome of the Syracuse vs. UCONN winner to find out who they will face in the title game of the Battle for Atlantis.

1. Defense stepped up

The scoring drought reared its ugly head today when Gonzaga made their second half adjustments, but the Aggies upped their pressure and were able to seal the win behind great defense on the last few possessions of the game.

2. We thought they were for real

And now we know it. This was a team that played 5 games in very short order, with their most recent game being a tough fight just 18 hours before today's tipoff. This team is for real, and it's damn fun to watch Aggie basketball again.

3. You're welcome, SEC

The Aggies just notched a massive victory to help the SEC RPI when we get closer to tournament time. Yes, you read that correctly. Coach Kennedy and the Aggies just put the SEC on notice too. This Aggie Basketball team looks like a contender.
