Aggies: inconsistent, can go either way
The one thing we can count on from the New Mexico State Aggie basketball team — at this point of the season — is nothing at all. Not on a night-to-night basis, anyway.
They're capable of good things, they're capable of bad things. They're capable of beating the best teams on their schedule, and they're capable of losing to mediocre ones.
Case in point: what do you think the Aggies are going to do against Utah State on Thursday? Well, I think they're going to win, but that's just me and I could be way off or dead on. They could lose by 10, they could win by 30. One certainty on any given night: if the Aggies shots are falling and the team is focused — which can go hand in hand — their percentage of winning moves upward.
They're still a 20-win team. A top-three, top-four team in the WAC, they can win the league. But it's far from a guarantee. One can't make many guarantees at this point — good or bad.
