10:39 AM ET 12.22 | Another poor shooting night away from home resulted in another Texas A&M loss. And after the game, the Aggies took a roster hit that hits too close to home. The Aggie men's basketball team shot just 27 percent Saturday in a 64-52 loss to Oklahoma in the Dickie's Shootout at the Toyota Center. Later Saturday night, A&M announced that J'Mychal Reese has been dismissed from the team. Reese and his father, assistant coach John Reese, did not participate in the game because they were dealing with "an issue within their family," according to A&M in a statement released just minutes before tip off.

His brother tweeted something about hoping to find him the right place to learn and grow as a student athlete. Speculation is the "family issue" revolves around finding him another school.

Gillespie had the program on a nice upward trajectory ... then Kentucky bought their next coach and the rest is history.
