Aggies stun No. 19 Clemson

B.J. Holmes scored 20 points, and Texas A&M upset No. 19 Clemson 69-60 on Thursday in the first round of the 76 Classic in Anaheim, Calif.

Before the season started, the Aggies were picked to finish fifth in the coaches' preseason Big 12 poll. By beating Clemson, the team may have taken steps to get noticed nationally, but A&M head coach Mark Turgeon cautioned that it was just one game.

"We played OK, maybe Clemson didn't have their best day so it's just one day," Turgeon said. "I like our team, I think we're just going to get a lot better.
