Winners of their last four, the Aggies enter conference play with an 11-2 record, the best start after 13 games since the 2017-18 season. Fifth-year senior Quenton Jackson had a career night in the 85-59 victory over Central Arkansas on Dec. 29. The Los Angeles native dropped 31 points, becoming the first Aggie to score 30-or-more in a single game since Danuel House in the 2016 SEC Tournament Championship.
