Why Texas A&M's Robert Williams wasn't a one-and-done

The Aggies' now-sophomore forward decided he wasn't ready for the NBA after his first season, despite the potential financial rewards and scouts who saw a bright future. He's back to get even better.

Not everyone made it to opening night

The opening night of college basketball was about which players didn't suit up or barely played -- and what that might mean moving forward.

When West Virginia can't dominate the offensive glass or create offense with its press, it's going to struggle to score in the half-court. Not the first time it's been an issue. Only 15 points off turnovers and nine second-chance points tonight.

Even in its exhibition loss to Texas, there's a lot to like about Texas A&M. The Aggies have an impressive frontcourt anchored by preseason All-American Robert Williams (11 points, 15 rebounds on Wednesday) and Tyler Davis (16 points, 7 rebounds). Tonny Trocha-Morelos (19 points) provides some frontcourt firepower off the bench.

Texas true freshman and five-star recruit Mohamed Bamba impressed on Wednesday night in the Longhorns' 73-69 win over Texas A&M in an exhibition game. Bamba had 15 points on 7-of-11 shooting, 10 rebounds, two blocks and two steals. The preseason All-American looks like a surefire impact player.

Texas A&M and Texas are discussing rekindling their rivalry on the hardwood. A&M coach Billy Kennedy said he and Texas coach Shaka Smart have pondered a neutral site game as early as next year with a possible home-and-home series to follow. "It's good for basketball in this state, it's good for both universities," Kennedy said. "Hopefully it'll be good for both programs." The teams met only once since A&M moved to the SEC, an 84-73 A&M win over Texas on Nov. 25, 2015 in the Battle 4 Atlantis in the Bahamas.
