Drake women out in first round of NCAA Tournament | The Kansas City Star

"We're excited to be able to bring an event like this to College Station".

Texas A&M may have earned a seventh-seed, but it certainly didn't get any favors in its draw. With Oklahoma being about 350 miles away it's great to see some of their fans here. The 10th-seeded Friars, fresh off making the Big East tournament championship, are finally healthy and clicking at a good time.

Gary Blair and Texas A&M played to their strength to beat pesky Drake.

DRAKE (26-8) - Jonas 1-5 1-2 3, Bachrodt 1-4 0-0 3, Hittner 8-17 0-0 19, Monahan 3-5 0-0 7, Rose 5-8 0-0 10, Rhine 10-11 1-1 21, Dean 3-8 0-0 8, Fuller 1-2 0-0 2, Greiner 0-0 0-0 0, Miller 1-2 0-0 3. Petty scored 18 against A&M in the first of three meetings - a game in which Gilder did not play.

A&M coach Gary Blair was appreciative of the atmosphere created Friday by the crowd of 2,835, but it also was the smallest in the past nine tournament games the Aggies have hosted.

PC was unable to extend an early first half lead as the Aggies went 0-for-10 from the floor to start the game, the Friars facing a 28-27 halftime lead. Bullock finishes 21st in the PC record book in scoring with 1404 career points...

Becca Jonas, a junior who went to Truman High School, had three points and four rebounds in Friday's game.

NCAA Tournament Round One: Alabama beats Virginia Tech 86-83
Obviously, we're glad, happy, that we're advancing. "He just - all of that stuff really doesn't matter". "He's a great player". It sounds impossible because it seems impossible: Alabama basketball once was better than Alabama football.

Arkansas had two players score in double digits in the loss, with senior guards Jaylen Barford and Daryl Macon scoring 15 and 12 points, respectively. This is the Aggies' 13th consecutive NCAA Tournament appearance, the eighth-longest active streak in the nation.

Most of the seats in Viejas Arena were filled for the opening session which tipped at 10:30 a.m. local time with No. 4 seed Wichita State taking on 13th-seeded Marshall. The Friars are up 24-23 with three minutes left.

The Texas A&M Aggies defeated the Providence Friars, 73-69, on Friday, March 16 in Charlotte, North Carolina, in the first round of the 2018 NCAA Tournament. The Aggies have never lost in six first-round games at home.

"His play in going downhill, he's really hard to stop once he gets going", A&M coach Billy Kennedy said. At the same time Providence didn't play the game it needed to.

Aggie big men Tyler Davis (right) and Robert Wiliams (left) will need to crash the glass to limit Providence's second-chance opportunities.

Virginia opens against No. 16 UMBC in the South Region in the late game in Charlotte.

Aislinn Konig added 12 points to help the fourth-seeded Wolfpack (25-8) advance to a second-round matchup with Maryland in the renewal of a past Atlantic Coast Conference rivalry.
