No list would be complete without a mention of the Aggie sport of the moment. In the spring, that sport is basketball
. Though we could wax poetic about the history of the game in College Station, we’ll instead focus on the way the game is now. Football Gamedays often receive most of the Aggie athletic hype, but the basketball spirit is just as invigorating. Like the Fightin’ Texas Aggie football team, the basketball team also plays in the SEC, meaning top teams from around the nation will make a stop in College Station during the spring. But that’s not the only reason to stop by Reed Arena.
The bigger reason is the crowds. The “Whoops” and “Gig ‘Ems” Aggies are known for are commonplace at basketball games, and they resound all the more in the team’s enclosed home court arena. Maroon and white are everywhere, and you also won’t go long without witnessing fans lock arms and chant the Aggie War Hymn. Basketball fans will enjoy the action on the court, and those less-involved in the sports world will get a kick out of everything that happens on the bleachers. Don’t miss Aggie’s final home game of the season on March 5.
