Marvin Menzies told me the team will start practicing for their Canada tour on Aug. 1, but didn't go much further than that. I'm also hoping to get more of the teams that they will face in the next couple days. ... The Aggies Renaldo Dixon was cleared and will redshirt this year for the Aggies. NMSU is loaded in the frontcourt so redshirting him is a good move. Menzies hopes to add one more player to the roster before the season tips off. ... The schedule is nearly complete. A previous poster asked what cupcakes are on the NMSU schedule. Most of the non-conference games have been posted on this blog, including road games against UNM, UTEP, UMass, USC or Bradley, Arizona and home games against UNM, UTEP, Pacific, St. Mary's, Louisiana Lafayette and a home Bracketbuster game. There are a couple of holes for home games as part of the Springfield tournament, but overall, this is probably the most challenging and complete schedule from top to bottom the Aggies have had since Menzies has been here.
