Texas A&M nabs Team of the Week honors with an 11-0 start to season
A team on the rise, Texas A&M (11-0) has the nation’s longest active winning streak at 11 games and continues to climb the national ranks. Currently No. 4 in the latest Associated Press poll, the Aggies are 11-0 for only the second time in school history and with the first streak coming in the 2008-09 season.
Texas A&M is one of 14 remaining undefeated teams this season. Its latest victory was a 94-55 home win against Houston on Dec. 13. Courtney Walker, who was recently named to the Naismith Trophy Top 50 Watch List by the Atlanta Tipoff Club, was one of five Aggies in double figures, leading the attack with 19 points in the win. The victory moved head coach Gary Blair into a tie with Seattle head coach Joan Bonvicini for 10th on the Division I active wins list, with 683.
Earlier in the week (Dec. 9), Texas A&M won at SMU 70-62 behind 16 points from Jordan Jones. The Aggies can match the best start in school history, and the program’s longest winning streak, with a win in their next game on Dec. 21 against No. 3 Texas in Little Rock, Arkansas.
