    Thank you for the RPI discussion--great insight. The Aggies are playing for a high seed in the WAC tourney, and must win the tourney if they hope to advance to the national tourney. Given the increasing strength in some of these other "mid-major" conferences, the WAC will only get the one team in the tourney this year.

    Newbold Does more than just not make mistakes for the Aggies. He is on pace to become a 1,000 point scorer this season. He is #6 all time in 3 point field goals made. #9 all time in 3 pt percentage # 8 all time in total assists. He is in the top 10 all time in free throw percentage and was USU Defensive player of the year as a Freshman, Something he is very much in the running for this season as well. Oh forgot to mention last game he had a game leading 9 rebounds just shy of a double double. And currently ranks as one of the leading rebounders in WAC play. No wonder coach Morrill has had a hard time keeping him off the floor for the past 4 years. Not to mention the assist to turnover ratio!

    Its funny the other day after watching the USU/Hawaii game I was thinking, what the heck does Newbold do for the team besides play pretty good defense. In the end the only thing I could come up with was that he doesn't make many mistakes. Turns out that's exactly what he does.

    Good insight. It is unfortunate that there is really no competition in the WAC this year. It is also too bad the Utes will not help the Ags RPI. Here's hoping the Aggie can put on a crazy run and sweep the WAC. That is no easy chore no matter what league you are in. Go State!!!
