George R.R. Martin collection

Jeremy Brett, curator of the science fiction and fantasy collection, pulls a box from "The Wall," one the areas inside Texas A&M's Cushing Memorial Library and Archives with materials related to author George R.R. Martin.

Behind the Thrones: Cushing Memorial Library's George R.R. Martin archives include the author's manuscripts and a collection of artwork, merchandise and replica weapons from Game of Thrones, which begins its final season Sunday night. The collection could eventually include an Iron Throne that has been used in the show or in promoting the show.

Spring game: A&M has moved Saturday’s Maroon and White game to Friday because of possible lightning in the area on Saturday. The game will kick off at 7:30 p.m with gates opening at 6:30 p.m. 

Basketball optimism: Robert Cessna writes that the A&M basketball program "hit a half-court shot" in landing Buzz Williams, and describes him as a Billy Gillispie clone. 

Baseball honors: A&M sophomore pitcher Asa Lacy and junior shortstop Braden Shewmake were named to the 40-man midseason watch list for the Golden Spikes Award, USA Baseball announced Wednesday.

Tennis honors: A&M’s Jayci Goldsmith was named the Southeastern Conference women’s tennis freshman of the week, and A&M’s Valentin Vacherot was named the SEC men’s tennis player of the week.
