Texas A&M wins virtual road game for title
Question of the Day
“We were talking about how they have played them three times before,” Colson said. “And this is their fourth time playing them, and they could possibly get an upset just like us against Baylor. And we were confident that they were going to go out there and do it, just because, you know, so much is on the line. And at some point you’ve got to go out there and get a win before it becomes embarrassing for your team.”
WOMEN’S HOOPS MARKETABILITY: Texas A&M coach Gary Blair says women’s basketball could be marketable _ if anyone would market it.
He said the teams at the top draw well, but the middle and bottom teams need to be more creative in finding ways to pull people in.
“We need to spend money to make money, and a lot of programs do not do that,” Blair said. “They will not put enough money into women’s basketball. Women’s basketball grows in so many ways besides the dollar bill.”
He’s noticed a few signs of women’s basketball gaining prominence at his school.
“You know, it’s sort of funny, spring football is going on at the same time,” he said. “Our baseball team is very, very good. They just changed the start of the baseball game on Tuesday night to 5 because we were going to be on TV at 7. Could you picture that happening?”
NEXT UP: Danielle Adams, Texas A&M’s talented center, played her last college game Tuesday night but the Aggies have someone with similar abilities coming right behind her.
Kelsey Bone, a 6-4 sophomore, sat out this season after transferring from South Carolina and will be eligible to play for the Aggies in 2011-12.
“She has a great inside-outside game just like me,” Adams said. “To have two post players who can do that is amazing. She’s been a great force in practice for us.”
Bone starred at Houston’s Dulles High School in 2009. She averaged 14 points and led the Southeastern Conference with 9.2 rebounds a game as a freshman at South Carolina, then announced shortly after the season she was leaving. Two weeks later, Bone said she would enroll at A&M.
“When we found out that she wanted to transfer, we just went in real hard on her,” Adams said. “I talked to her almost every day and tried to convince her to get here. Some of the other players did the same
“We knew she wanted to come back home. It was a great thing for us to get her here.”
