"DJ Hogg has matured in a lot of areas," Texas A&M coach Billy Kennedy said. "He's not just relying on his jump shot. He did some things defensively and rebounded. He shared the ball. When he does other things, that's when he can be special."
"What a great opportunity for us to go over in front of our armed forces and play a game against a ... team like West Virginia to kick off the season," Kennedy said. "It's going to be a challenging trip."
