Texas A&M. DePaul play for spot in Sweet 16

Texas A&M now heads to its seventh Sweet 16 appearance in program history. In last year's First Round, the Aggies set the Tournament record with a 21-point comeback against Penn.

Texas A&M, the hosts for this weekend's games are coming off an 89-76 victory over Drake on Friday afternoon.

DePaul built a 15-point lead early in the fourth quarter when the Aggies stormed back to come within 69-63 with 6:21 left in the game.

DePaul, a team that likes to run the floor and shoot quickly, will provide Texas A&M a different test. Now it's time to see what the Aggies have learned as they square off against fifth-seeded DePaul on Sunday in an NCAA Women's Tournament second-round game at Reed Arena in College Station, Texas. Texas A&M's Chennedy Carter did the latter. and it was the final dagger that toppled DePaul.

Anriel Howard had her second-straight double double, adding 18 points and 19 rebounds, the second-most rebounds for an Aggie in an NCAA Tournament game. "They got off to the quick and efficient start, and they also held strong when that Oklahoma team made a great run at us in the second half".

Chante Stonewall made a layup soon after that timeout, but Carter hit a 3-pointer a few seconds to make it 71-66. That's when Carter took over, gradually cutting into the DePaul lead.

Bench scoring was controlled by DePaul with 24 points off the bench compared to Texas A&M's 8 points.
