You remember this team, right? The Aggies are a member of the NCAA Division II Heartland Conference, and they open their season at home Saturday against Adams State.
Coach Brad Vanden Boogaard's squad had a final scrimmage Monday and reached four of its five goals. Here is what the totals were:
- Attempted 98 shots
- Attempted 62 3-pointers
- Rebounded 49 percent of its misses
- Forced 32 turnovers
- Attempted 15 more shots than the opponent
Coach Vanden Boogaard e-mailed me the update and added this: "In both of our scrimmages, we played teams that wante to play at an up-tempo pace, so our big challenge this week will be preparing for Adams State, who I don't feel will run with us."
I wish the Aggies the best of luck Saturday in their regular season debut with The System. All of us will be behind them for the opener, right?
