The Texas A&M Basketball team had a rough 2020-21 season. After a promising year one for Buzz Williams, going 10-8 in conference and 16-14 overall, the Aggies suffered from irregular circumstances in 2021.

The team would go 8-10 overall, winning just a pair of conference games. It was the worst basketball season from the Aggies since going 0-16 in the 2003-04 season.

They’ll be looking to bounce back in 2021-22 and one of the ways that Williams plans to get back into the winning column is by bringing in transfers. It is already clear that Williams isn’t afraid to bring in outside players, as the 2021-22 squad will be filled with transfer players.

The Texas A&M Basketball team added another transfer player on Friday

On Friday, the Texas A&M Basketball team announced that they had added a transfer player in Aaron Cash.

First of all, if this team can’t win with a coach named Buzz Williams and a player named Aaron Cash, maybe it just wasn’t meant to be. On a more serious note, Cash is an extremely underrated prospect who can have a huge instant impact on this basketball team.

Out of high school, Cash attended Grayson College, a small school in Grayson County, Texas. At the JUCO level, he was able to be an extremely productive part of the team, serving as a strong scorer and an elite 3-point shooter.

Cash averaged 15.3 points per contest and was a huge part of Grayson’s 19-3 season. He’ll teach the A&M basketball team how to win in conference, as his JUCO team went 12-2 in conference. The JUCO transfer is an elite 3-point shooter, making 45.7% of his shots, and an efficient scorer, knocking down 47.2% of his buckets.

He will help an Aggies team that desperately needs improved shooting. Texas A&M finished 312th out of 340 eligible teams in the country in 3-point percentage in 2020, scoring under 30% of their 3-point attempts. It was one of the worst seasons in recent memory from an SEC team from long-range.

Cash is also a strong rebounder, a part of the game that Buzz Williams is high on. He’ll bring grit and toughness to the squad that Texas A&M missed out on last season.
