What to make of the Aggies? Well, right now they’re streaking. But how will that hold up in the face of the news of grad transfer Duane Wilson being out and J.J. Caldwell being kicked off the team? The duo had played about 78% of the available minutes to them at the point guard position. So the Aggies are marching into Columbia with only one real legitimate option at point guard.
