After winning the title at the inaugural Shelby Metcalf Classic over the weekend, Texas A&M's (4-0) men's basketball team climbed two spots on Monday to No. 10 in the USA Today/ESPN Coaches' poll and rose one spot to No. 11 in the AP poll.
The only other time the Aggies have been ranked in the top 10 in either poll was four weeks during the 1959-60 season. A&M was ranked No. 8 for a week and No. 10 the following three weeks.
On Sunday's championship game of the Metcalf Classic, the Aggies led 34-13 at the half against Saint Louis. The 13 first-half points by the Billikens tied the record for the fewest points allowed by A&M. Texas Tech scored 13 against the Aggies in the first half in 1986.
Texas A&M has won 11 straight regular-season games since falling to Texas last year in Austin, 83-70. The Aggies have won 26 straight regular-season home games.
The undefeated Aggies return to action on Saturday, November 25th at 2:00 p.m. when they face Idaho State at Reed Arena.
