More on A&M

Here’s a good story on Texas A&M’s burly forward Joseph Jones, who figures to be quite the handful for the Huskies tonight.
Other stories I’ve read have said that 7-footer DeAndre Jordan is likely to get the first crack at guarding Jon Brockman tonight. But I’ve got to think Jones will get a few looks at Brockman, as well.
Going up against Jones and Jordan will obviously be a great early-season test for Brockman, who is off to a roaring start but has done so against teams that don’t have big men like this.
Figure we may see Brockman put some of that improved perimeter game to use even more tonight.
This also may mean more minutes for UW’s other big men, who will likely be needed for some major minutes on defense, if nothing else.
But with Brockman likely to have a tougher go of it offensively tonight, someone else is going to have to pick up their offensive game (Quincy Pondexter being an obvious candidate).
This could be a game where UW might really miss Ryan Appleby, the one Husky most capable of really stretching a defense.
Here’s more on the Aggies from Scout.com.
