BOSTON -- Boston Celtics first-round draft choice Robert Williams got a lecture from the team about accountability and said they are moving on from the bad first impression he made by missing a flight and failing to get back in time for summer league practice.

Former A&M Consolidated standout Kip Corrington, who was a first-team All-Southwest Conference defensive back for the Aggies in 1986 and ’87 along with being a three-time Academic All-American, is part of the Texas A&M Lettermen’s Association’s Hall of Fame Class of 2018.

The Southeastern Conference home games for the Texas A&M men’s team next season will be Alabama, Arkansas, Auburn, Georgia, LSU, Missouri, South Carolina, Tennessee and Vanderbilt. Teams that A&M will play twice in league action are Alabama, Arkansas, LSU, Missouri and South Carolina. A&M’s other league road games will be Florida, Kentucky, Ole Miss and Mississippi State.

Tyler Davis headlined a group of Texas A&M men’s basketball players who were honored during the team’s awards banquet Monday night. 

Chipola College (Fla.) 6-foot-5 guard Brandon Mahan has signed with the Texas A&M men’s basketball program.
