Ag women can't step through an open Dore

By the time A&M stepped onto the raised hardwood at Vanderbilt's Memorial Gym, Kentucky had already fallen at LSU 72-77. This put the Aggie Women's Bouncy Ball team in control of their own fate again after the Big Monday loss to the Wildcats dropped the Ags to third place in the SEC. Win out and we take the SEC regular season. Vanderbilt had been a very difficult win in January, but they were missing Christina Foggie, who was their leading scorer in the game at Reed. A&M had missing players as well, as Tori Scott and Jordan Jones did not make the trip to Nashville.

Control of their own destiny didn't survive the next two hours as Vanderbilt upset TAMU 61-51. A&M scored a season low 20 pts in the first half, but were only down 5 as the teams changed sides. According to Coach Blair, playing the second half toward the Aggie bench should have helped. But the team came out of intermission and fell behind by 12 by the first TV timeout. The Ags would cut the lead to 3 with 6:52 to go at 47-44, but the Commodores answered every Aggie run.

A&M shot a pathetic 30.9% from the field despite forcing the ball inside all game. Senior center Tiffany Clarke had a career high 30 points and added 7 boards. The Ags had defensive breakdowns at key points in the game and were outrebounded by the shorter Dores 37-33. Watching the trainwreck on ESPN2, fans wondered if Coach Blair had talked up the home court issues of Memorial Gym so much that the team psyched itself out.

A lot of credit for the A&M funk has to go to Vandy and Coach Melanie Balcolmb. They played smart, moved the ball, deflected entry passes and hit shots when they had to.
