COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- Texas A&M enters its first season in the Southeastern Conference after a tough year where coach Billy Kennedy's illness and numerous injuries doomed the season and broke a streak of six straight appearances in the NCAA tournament.
The Aggies entered last season expected to contend with Kansas for the Big 12 title in their last season in the conference. Instead, Texas A&M went 14-18 and just 4-14 in conference play.
Kennedy took a medical leave early in the season after being diagnosed with the early stages of Parkinson's disease last season. He's learned how to manage the disease now, and is looking forward to his second season in College Station.
Kennedy says: "It's going to be a lot more fun, I promise you."
