April 5, 2011: Gary Blair's Aggie women's basketball team won its first NCAA national championship. Led by All-American Danielle Adams, the Aggies beat Notre Dame, 76-70.

"I wasn't going to let my team down," she said. "We came that far to get a national championship. I just wanted to carry them. So that's what we did."

Adams' 30 points were the second-highest total in a championship game, and she was named the tournament's most outstanding player.
