Texas A&M Basketball still voteless in the newest USA TODAY Sports Coaches Poll

Texas A&M Basketball put on one heck of a performance on Saturday afternoon, defeating the then No. 6-ranked Kentucky Wildcats 97-92 inside a packed Reed Arena, as the Aggies earned their first SEC win on the young season in big-time fashion.

While the last two weeks have been a mix of doom and gloom combined with fear of what might come next, credit A&M head coach Buzz Williams for correcting the issues that plagued his team at the start of SEC play, as the schedule, at least on paper, includes two winnable matchups, starting with visiting the struggling Arkansas Razorbacks on Tuesday night.

Even with the significant victory over the Wildcats, Texas A&M is still on the outside looking in the newest USA TODAY Sports Coaches Poll. Still, if we’re discussing their chances of making the NCAA Tournament, the Aggies have already earned their fourth Quad 1 win on the year after Saturday’s win, with more opportunities to pad their resume in the coming months.

Here is a look at the complete Coaches Poll powered by USA TODAY Sports.

Texas A&M will travel to Fayetteville to take on the Arkansas Razorbacks on Tuesday, Jan. 16 at 8:00 p.m. CT. The game will air on the SEC Network.
