Aggie Women Hoops Gets a 3-Seed

Jamie Sabau

Gary Blair has his team firing on all cylinders during the post-season. Can they keep the momentum and make a run at another NCAA Championship?

After claiming the SEC Championship in their first ever appearance in the SEC Tournament, Gary Blair and the Aggie Women Basketball Team were given a 3-seed by the NCAA Selection Committee. Coming as a bit of a shocker, the Aggies ended up in the Norfolk region where Notre Dame sits as the 1-seed. In the first round, the Aggies will take on the 13-seed in Wichita State. That game takes place this Saturday at 3PM Central at Reed Arena in Aggieland. Texas A&M will likely face the winner of 6-seed Nebraska and 11-seed Chattanooga on Monday in College Station. Outside of the first weekend, the Aggies have a favorable field in the Norfolk region. The potential Sweet 16 matchup would be against Duke, and then the top-seeded Notre Dame team in the Elite 8. It may not have been the best possible outcome for the Aggies, but it certainly isn't the worst.

We're only two years removed from the National Championship run by the Aggies when they were a 2-seed in the tournament. It's no surprise to see a Gary Blair team firing on all cylinders late in the season, but this is an Aggie team with a lot of young talent making their first appearances in the NCAA Tournament. Kelsey Bone will certainly be the focus of every team the Aggies face, so we'll see if Blair's youngsters can rise to the challenge.
