Texas A&M Wins 2011 NCAA Women's B-Ball Title
With the win Texas A&M ended the best season in school history with a 33-5 record and became the fourth Texas based school after Texas (1986), Texas Tech (1993) and Baylor (2005) to bring an NCAA women's basketball title back to the Lone Star State
After last night's bricklaying convention at Reliant Stadium, it was nice to see a game where people actually hit midrange jumpers and play defense. Both teams played hard with Skylar Diggins dropping 23 points for the Irish but a clutch Tyra White three pointer would swell the Aggie lead to 73-68. A defensive stop by the Aggies on the next Notre Dame possession ensured that the NCAA championship trophy would be coming back to Texas.
In addition Aggie coach Gary Blair made a little history as well. He becomes the oldest coach at age 65 to snag an NCAA women's title.
They're probably still partying in Bryan-College Station right now and at Aggieland.
Whoop! Congratulations to the Texas A&M Aggies.
