The Aggies are set to return four starters and eight letterwinners from last season’s 18-win squad including junior guard Alex Caruso and forward Kourtney Roberson. Emerging as one of the SEC's top playmakers a year ago, Caruso led the league in total assists (170), assists per game (5.0) and total steals (6.9) while also seeing his scoring average jump from 5.5 points per game as a freshman in 2012-13 to 9.0 last season.
Roberson, meanwhile, averaged 9.8 points per contest last season while leading the Aggies in rebounding (230 total rebounds / 6.8 rebounds per game). A product of Arcadia, La., he collected five double-doubles a year ago and enters his senior season with seven during his A&M career.
Senior Jordan Green and junior Antwan Space are also back from last season’s starting line-up bringing valuable experience after combining for 49 starts for the Maroon & White a year ago.
Head coach Billy Kennedy enters his fourth season in College Station and brings new blood into his coaching staff, adding Amir Abdur-Rahim and former Mississippi State head coach Rick Stansbury as assistants.
In addition to the solid group of returners, seven talented newcomers join the fold, including notable freshmen Peyton Allen (G), Alex Robinson (PG) and Tonny Trocha-Morelos (C), who are expected to play significant roles during their first season in the program.
Texas A&M has announced its 2014-15 non-conference schedule which will see a pair of 2014 NCAA Tournament teams (Arizona State and Mercer) make visits to Reed Arena. Additionally, the Aggies will host Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, LSU, Mississippi State, Missouri and Vanderbilt at home during SEC play.
The complete schedule and dates for the upcoming season of SEC men’s basketball is expected to be announced in August.
