The Texas A&M women’s basketball team was named the espnW team of the week after a pair of top 15 victories over Kentucky (77-60) and Arkansas (74-73) last week. It was A&M’s first time to beat top 15 teams in back-to-back games since beating No. 2 Stanford and No. 9 Notre Dame to win the 2011 national championship. A&M beat No. 3 Baylor to reach the Final Four that year.

Bench depth, a strength for the seventh-ranked Texas A&M women’s basketball team, will get a boost for tonight’s game at LSU with the return of junior guard Zaay Green. The transfer from Tennessee had been unavailable for the last two games along with sophomore guard Alexis Morris who again won’t be available.
