The men’s and women’s teams at Texas A&M University–Corpus Christi storm lanes and drain buckets as they face off against the rest of the Southland Conference during the 2012 season. Head Coach Robert Robinson plans to help his women’s squad rebound from last year’s setbacks and return them to 2010’s deep run to the conference-tournament final. Junior guard Jessica Jammer paces her sneakered mates by dropping points that frequently total in the double digits, helping expand both the dreams and counting skills of aspiring athletes in the stands.
Men’s coach Willis Wilson leads his short-panted squad against several formidable foes from the Southland this winter, including the Sam Houston State Bearkats. From lower-level courtside seats at the basket, fans won’t miss leading scorer Terence Jones swish in three-pointers from behind the arc or slash to the basket for a reverse lay-in, all while keeping his prized lucky rabbit’s paw firmly in one hand.
