Ray Turner and the Texas A&M Aggies have a 4-1 record and a No. 25 ranking in this week's AP Top 25 poll.

The Texas A&M Aggies come into basketball play this week with a No. 25 record and two winnable games on their schedule with Alcorn State (1-4) on Wednesday and Stephen F. Austin (2-2) on Saturday. Ray Turner has been a leader scoring the ball (first in points) and on the boards (second) and Billy Gillespie has made everyone forget about his personal issues and focused them on the growth of the Aggies program. 

Four winnable games in two weeks could put an 8-1 Aggies squad against the No. 10 Florida Gators on December 17th, then we'll know exactly what kind of team College Station really has.

Here is the AP's Top 25 for week four:
