Texas A&M guard Duane Wilson announces he’s out for the season


Texas A&M’s win over Kentucky on Saturday came at a cost as the Aggies lost one of their key players for the rest of the season.

Guard Duane Wilson, who started 16 of the 22 games he appeared in during this year’s campaign, announced on social media that his college career is over.

Wilson is a graduate transfer from Marquette, where he played the previous three seasons. He posted a heartfelt message to both the Golden Eagles and Aggies via Instagram on Monday morning.

“Never wanted to go out like this, unfortunately my college career is over. I’m devastated I can’t be on the floor with my brothers and that my best year of my college career is cut short. I’ve experienced a lot in these 5 years of college. It’s a sad time right now, but I’ll be back. This is just a blessing in a disguise. God has a plan for me. Thank you Marquette and Texas A&M for everything. I’m very thankful to be apart of two great programs. Best believe we still going to the Final 4. I know my brothers gone hold it down for me. Love y’all.”

This season, Wilson was averaging 24 minutes, fifth-best on the team, to go with 9.0 points, 4.0 assists, 2.0 rebounds and 1.1 steals per game.

Wilson appeared to aggravate a previous injury in Texas A&M’s 85-74 win over then-No. 24 Kentucky, the team’s fourth straight victory. In a loss at Alabama on Dec. 30, Wilson left for the locker room after an apparent right knee injury.
