Billy Kennedy and Texas A&M basketball saw their 2016-17 season take a step back. After advancing to the SEC championship game and the Sweet 16 last season, the Aggies entered the weekend at 13-11 (5-7 in SEC), almost sure to miss the NCAA Tournament.
Their down year got worse on Thursday. Star sophomore forward D.J. Hogg will reportedly miss the rest of the regular season because of an ankle injury.

A former top recruit, Hogg became one of the Aggies’ best player, averaging 12 points, 5.1 rebounds, and 3.4 assists per game.
Hogg injured his ankle on Dec. 21 against Georgia, according to the report linked above. He had tried to play on it for the past several games. But after consulting with team doctors, it was determined that it would be in Hogg’s best interest to sit out the remainder of the season.
