Texas A&M’s Khris Middleton To Return Saturday

Texas A&M Aggies forward Khris Middleton is expected to return tomorrow when the Aggies face Louisiana-Monroe in College Station. Middleton, a coaches and Big 12 Hoops' preseason first team all-conference team member, has missed the past four weeks after undergoing surgery to repair a torn meniscus.

Saturday's game will mark the first time the star player and new Aggies head coach Billy Kennedy will be teamed up. Middleton injured his knee in the first game of the season, during which Kennedy was absent for health reasons.

Last season Middleton averaged 14.4 points per game and can add another scoring threat to the lackluster Aggies' offense. Through their first eight games, the Aggies (7-1) have averaged 64.1 ppg, ranking them 257th nationally, and have only scored more than 60 once in their past six games.

In Middleton's absence, Ray Turner has exploded onto the Aggie scene, jumping his average up from 4 ppg last season to a team high 14.4 this year. Washington transfer Elston Turner also contributed 12.1 ppg while Middleton rehabbed the knee.

Starting Saturday we will be able to see who this Aggies team really is, giving them a good ramp up before heading into conference play. The experience-laden team was picked as co-conference champions by conference coaches.
