Weekend By The Numbers

6 – Consecutive wins for the men’s basketball team. The Aggies sat at 3-7 after the loss at Baylor on Feb. 14, but the magical run over the last three weeks has A&M in good position for another NCAA Tournament bid.

132 – Games played by Josh Carter, tying Dominique Kirk’s school record. Carter has a career record of 97-35, making him the winningest player in school history.

18-0 – A&M’s record when it scores at least 27 points in the paint. The Aggies had 36 points in the paint against Missouri.

62 percent – Season-high shooting percentage for A&M, achieved Saturday against Missouri. Its previous best was 57.1 percent against Kent State on Nov. 29.

800 – Career wins for softball coach Jo Evans. Evans captured the milestone after the Aggies claimed an 11-0 run rule victory over Louisiana Tech on Sunday.

.444 – Batting average for sophomore Brooks Raley last week. Raley went 8-for-18 at the plate, scored six runs and picked up the win on the mound Friday against Utah.

61 – Strikeouts for A&M pitchers in the five games played last week. The Aggies have now struck out 10 or more batters in seven straight games.

6 – Double-doubles this season for Danielle Gant. Gant scored 16 points and had 13 rebounds in Saturday’s game against Baylor.

4 – Consecutive years of third place or better finishes for the women’s basketball team.
