Texas A&M Upsets Stanford To Reach Finals
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) – Texas A&M has upset its second straight top-seeded team in the NCAA tournament and is heading to its first national championship game.
The Aggies (32-5) rallied from a 10-point deficit in the final six minutes Saturday, winning it when Tyra White put in a layup with 3.3 seconds left to give Texas A&M a 63-62 victory over Stanford.
It will face either 2001 national champion Notre Dame or two-time defending champ Connecticut in Tuesday night’s title game.
White finished with 18 points, and All-American Danielle Adams scored 16 for the Aggies.
Stanford (33-3) got 31 points from Nnemkadi Ogwumike and 11 from Jeanette Pohlen but blew the late lead and went home empty-handed from the Final Four for the fourth consecutive year.
The Cardinal were the first team in this year’s NCAA tournament to top 50 points against Texas A&M.
