COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) - Texas A&M had dropped three in a row, including two straight at home, and the Aggies saw their once-promising season slipping away.
With five of the next seven games on the road, Texas A&M's seniors called a players' only meeting before a game against Colorado. The team has responded, winning five of its next sixgames to get back on track.
Coach Mark Turgeon says his players had to hit "rock bottom" before they could turn things around. The meeting was a wake up call to the Aggies and forced everyone to be more accountable for their part in the losses.
The last test in the brutal road swing comes Wednesday when the 24th-ranked Aggies face No. 2 Kansas looking for a win to build momentum entering next week's Big 12 tournament.
