I went to my first Aggie basketball game of the season last night. Texas Tech and Bobby Knight came to College Station, and in the first half, they were red-hot. The Aggies couldn't hit anything, couldn't even get in the paint, and had more team fouls than points for about the first 10 minutes of the game. We went into halftime down by 9. Coach Gillespie did something good during that half-time pep talk, while we enjoyed frisbee-catching dogs. When they came out in the second half, they were playing better defense, hitting their shots better, and just playing more like a team than five individuals. It took a bit to make up the deficit, but the second half was very exciting, and the crowd was into it and very loud. By the end, we had managed a 63-55 win.
It feels great to be back into another season of conference play.
