Texas A&M crushes West Virginia, Aggie Twitter goes nuts


No. 25 Texas A&M entered Friday night’s game as an underdog to No. 11 West Virginia, but the Aggies shocked the college basketball world with a dominating 88-65 victory over the Mountaineers.

Despite a rocky few minutes — mostly caused by Bob Huggins’ patented “Press Virginia” defense — the Aggies controlled play most of the night. They shot 48.4 percent from the floor and 52.6 percent from 3-point range, never giving West Virginia’s offense a chance to catch up.

Texas A&M accomplished this despite the suspension of arguably its best player, Robert Williams. Tyler Davis and Admon Gilder led the way, each scoring 23 points.

The game was played on Ramstein Air Base in Ramstein-Miesenbach, Germany as part of the 2017 Armed Forces Classic.

Here was some of the best reaction from Texas A&M’s surprising win over West Virginia:
