The current APR cycle of four years includes both of Reggie's seasons and two Menzies seasons. The important thing to remember is that it's a four-year average and the reason the hoops team was so low was because of the turnover from Lou Henson's last couple of years to RT and then Menzies. Now that low score is off the average and the men's team reaches the all-important benchmark of 900, they regain the scholarship.
What could have been?
The most interesting thing that I learned was that the NCAA could have yanked postseason consideration prior to last season. Of course we all know that the Aggies went on to have some postseason success.
So with the re-gained scholarship, the Aggies have one to fill. Menzies said Troy Gillenwater will get a scholarship back as well as incoming freshmen Nephawe and Kabongo. Menzies said there are a handful of players he is monitoring this summer in terms of academics and interest level or he could save it for following this year when the Aggies only lose seniors in McKines and Castillo and Lumpkins.
