Three Aggies Suspended for Violating Texas A&M Policy

Texas A&M suspended sophomore forward Robert Williams for the first two games of the season, reports SportsDay. Caldwell has been suspended the season's first five games following an offseason arrest for driving while intoxicated, a charge later dismissed "in the interest of justice", according to a court document. Williams, a 6-10 sophomore who averaged 11.9 points and 8.2 rebounds as a freshman, will be back for A&M's game on November 20 against Oklahoma State in the Legends Classic at the Barclays Center.

With four key players missing for tonight's exhibition, head coach Billy Kennedy will rely on Tyler Davis and Tonny Trocha-Morelos to lead a guard-oriented and very young team.

Unfortunately, the Aggies be without three of their best players. If there is an upside to the situation, it's that a talented crop of newcomers looking to earn playing time will gain early experience and have a chance to show what they're capable of contributing.

Texas A&M quietly has emerged as a contender for the SEC basketball title this season.

Williams and Caldwell also missed Friday night's exhibition game against Tarleton State at Reed Arena.

Gilder and Hogg are expected to return for the Aggies' season opener against West Virginia on November 10 at Ramstein Air Base in Germany, while Williams will miss the West Virginia game and also the Aggies' home opener against California-Santa Barbara on November 17.
