SAN ANTONIO -- Some Texas A&M students wore paper bags over their heads during Acie Law's freshman season.
Now, Aggies fans are decked out in maroon shirts, eager to be
part of what Law and his teammates are doing.
For Memphis -- the Number two seed in the N-C-AA South Regional
-- that means once again playing in front of a partisan crowd
despite have a better seed.
A&M, under coach Billy Gillispie, went from an 0-and-16
record in the Big 12 to the NCAA round of 16 and a school-record
27 victories only three seasons later.
And Texas A&M won't be far from home tomorrow for its first
regional semifinal game since 1980.
The Aggies face Memphis at the Alamodome in San Antonio.
When the Aggies finished their open practice, the players
greeted and shook hands with fans, many who chanted Law's name.
