Women's NCAA Final Four: Texas A&M Aggies Are National Champions

It might not be a Big 12 conference title, a BCS championship or a men's NCAA college basketball championship, or even a College World Series victory, but Texas A&M fans have something to be happy for. The Aggies won the women's college basketball title last night, defeating the Notre Dame Fighting Irish 76-70. The title caps off an improbable run for the Aggies, who had to defeat the Stanford Cardinal in the Final Four to reach the title game.

The Aggies should also be thankful that Notre Dame was their opponent as well. It was widely believed that Stanford would face off against Connecticut in the title game, but the Irish upset the Lady Huskies to reach the title game. That's ok though, the UConn men won the men's national championship on Monday night, and I don't think I've met anybody from Connecticut that wouldn't take that trade off.

Danielle Adams was the star of the game for Texas A&M, scoring 30 points - 22 in the second half - leading A&M to their first women's college basketball title.
