WAC individuals lighting it up

The WAC has proven to have its fair share of offensive weapons this year.
Four players in the WAC are ranked in the top 20 scoring in the country thus far in the season.
San Jose State guard Adrian Oliver is eighth nationally at 21.9 points per game after scoring a career-high 39 against La. Tech on Thursday. La. Tech’s Kyle Gibson is 10th (21.7), Nevada’s Luke Babbitt is 15th (21.1 points per game) and JY is 19th at 20.6 per game. Aggies senior Jonathan Gibson is 33rd at 19.3 per game.

From a team standpoint, Nevada is the top scoring club at 82 per game, 14th in the country. La. Tech is 24th at 79.9 per game.The Aggies are 52nd with 76.7 per game.

Great that the players are getting recognition. Hoping it translates to wins at LaTech, Nevada and Utah State.

The Aggies are a couple of games ahead of last year, but I'm still not real happy as a fan. Menzies has had a long time to get it together and the program has been in a status quo since he's been at NM State. Unless the Aggies win the WAC tourney and make the NCAA, I think Menzies should go. No personal offense meant to you Jason, but I don't care about individual performances.

You know how girl friends talk. Find out why "Big Wen" the savior didn't fly back with the team and stayed in the bay area. I wish this team the best, but just know that the train wreck is headed our way. Too many things happen with this team and they are allowed to do too many things that don't represent us all in a positive way. I guess this is all about the "W" and not a prep for life. Go Aggies.

If it was all about the "W" they would be winning games...obviously the Aggies and Menzies don't care about winning. At least in the past the Aggies would get an academic All-American here and there...there's nothing going on with this program now. No wins, no national post season, no good students...just sad.

Anon 10:15, do you mean that Wendell stayed in the Bay area after the team came back on Sunday? If that's the case, I have to say this is a bad decision on Menzies part, not only showing favoritism but also showing lack of concern for academics. The team has already missed a week of school at the beginning of the semester and given Wendell's less than stellar or impressive academic record, the last thing he needs is missing more classes so he can spend extra time at home.

Geez, I though women were the ones that gossip (agreeing with Anon 10:15am: "You know how girlfriends talk"). I bet you guys would really enjoy a TV program on Sunday night on ABC---its called "Desperate Housewives". The business about grades and missing classes and trying to micro-control the players and their lives has been rehashed so many times that everyone understands it and it is getting boring---almost as boring as Obama still blaming George Bush. How about some comments about basketball?
