COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) Following his team's fastest start of the season, Texas A&M coach Gary Blair intends to have an enjoyable holiday, while preparing for a much bigger test on Sunday.
"It's always good to love your team the night before Thanksgiving," a pleased Blair said after the No. 7 Aggies defeated McNeese State 93-27 on Wednesday night. "This team finally showed up tonight, and showed what we're capable of doing, regardless of opponent."
Following sluggish starts in their two prior victories over Rice and Prairie View A&M, the Aggies made a point of running and gunning from the opening tip against the Cowgirls. Their plan worked to perfection in building a 54-14 halftime lead.
