Texas A&M women will open NCAA tournament vs. Drake

Journal sports writers Kevin McNamara and Bill Koch will break down the matchups this week for both PC and URI as well as report live on both teams on providencejournal.com and on Twitter as the Rams and Friars open NCAA Tournament play. Earlier Sunday the Rams lost to Davidson, 58-57 in the Atlantic 10 Championship game.

If the Aggies win their first-round matchup, they will take on the victor of 2-seed North Carolina vs. 15-seed Lipscomb.

Prior to last season, Rhode Island had not been to the tournament since 1999 when they lost to Charlotte in the first round.

Overall, the A-10 saw three teams get into the tournament. It also will be a team-record fifth consecutive NCAA Tournament appearance for the Friars.

UNC will face 15-seed Lipscomb in the First Round. In the process, Texas A&M pulled off the most incredible comeback in tournament history, stunning Northern Iowa in a double-overtime thriller.

The Providence College Friars are headed to the Big East Finals after they overcame a 17 point deficit to defeat Xavier on Friday night at Madison Square Garden.

The only question the Aggies seemed to face heading into Selection Sunday were what seed would the committee give them and where would they be shipped to for the opening rounds. "Thirteen straight NCAA Tournaments".
