Aiple Named SEC Freshaman of The Week

COLLEGE STATION, Texas – Texas A&M setter Stephanie Aiple has been named the SEC Freshman Player of the Week for volleyball, the Southeastern Conference announced today. It marks the third time the Round Rock, Texas, native has received the honor.

Aiple, who leads all freshmen setters in the SEC and is fifth overall in the league with 10.76 assists per set for the full season, averaged 11.14 assists per set and also hit .400 while directing the A&M offense to back-to-back .330-plus hitting percentages in wins against Arkansas and Missouri last week.

With the victories, A&M extended its winning streak to four matches, marking its longest winning streak in SEC play this season. The Aggies moved to 11-5 in SEC matches, surpassing their number of conference wins last year, and climbed to fourth place in the league standings. A&M improved to 19-8 overall and needs one win in its final two matches to reach the 20-win milestone for the third time in four years and for the 15th time in Laurie Corbelli’s 22-year tenure as head coach of the Aggies.

Aggie Womens Hoops Stay Perfect

COLLEGE STATION- Texas A&M’s women’s basketball team notched its fifth 5-0 start in the past seven years with a 59-41 victory over Prairie View A&M in Reed Arena Monday night.

The No. 7 Aggies went on a 20-0 run after Prairie View (0-3) tied the game at 19 with 5:08 left in the first half. The run spanned both halves, and a total of 8:13 of game time. The Aggies led 29-19 at the break and led by as many as 21 in the second half.

Courtney Walker led the Aggies with 10 points, and contributed six rebounds, four steals and three assists. Walker reached double figures for the 18th straight game, dating back to last season.

Texas A&M has now won 16 straight games against Prairie View, located about 50 miles southeast of College Station. The Aggies have won 34 of their last 35 games against unranked opponents at home, and 70 straight against unranked opponents at home in non-conference play.

This is the second win for the Aggies this season against a 2014 NCAA Tournament team, after opening the season with a 76-68 win at then-No. 18 DePaul.

Prairie View’s Jeanette Jackson led all scorers with 24 points.

The Aggies host McNeese State in Reed Arena, where A&M has won 17 of their last 19, on Wednesday, November 26, with coverage on SEC Network Plus. Mike Wright and Leanne South are on the call.

Houston’s Mallett’s Status Unclear for Sunday

HOUSTON (AP) _ Houston quarterback Ryan Mallett is being evaluated for an undisclosed injury and coach Bill O’Brien says they’ll know more about his status later this week.

O’Brien wouldn’t say what his injury was amid reports that he has a torn pectoral muscle.

Mallett was solid in his first career start in a win over Cleveland on Nov. 16, but he routinely overthrew receivers in a loss to the Bengals on Sunday.

Mallett was listed on the injury report last week with a chest injury but did not miss practice time. Teammates say he seemed to be in pain during the game, but they didn’t know what was wrong.

If he can’t play Sunday against Tennessee, the Texans will likely go back to veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick, who was benched for Mallett.

Cowboys Rally Against Giants, Texans Fall to Bengals

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) _ Tony Romo threw two touchdown passes to Dez Bryant, the winner from 13 yards with 1:01 remaining, lifting the Dallas Cowboys to a comeback 31-28 victory over the New York Giants.

Romo threw for two TDs in the third quarter. But the Giants (3-8), trailing 24-21, staged a 93-yard drive capped by Adrien Robinson’s first career TD catch, from 1 yard with 3 minutes left.

Back came Dallas (8-3) on an 80-yard march in which Romo never was pressured. He found Bryant in the back of the end zone to win it, setting up an NFC East showdown with Philadelphia on Thanksgiving Day for first place.

Thanks to Odell Beckham Jr.’s spectacular one-handed catch, one of the rookie’s two first-half touchdowns, New York built a 21-10 halftime lead. But the Giants lost their sixth straight and were eliminated from division contention.

 

HOUSTON (AP) _ Andy Dalton threw for 233 yards and a touchdown and A.J. Green had 121 yards receiving to give the Cincinnati Bengals a 22-13 win over the Houston Texans on Sunday.

The Bengals (7-3-1) led throughout, but Houston (5-6) cut the lead to 3 late in the third quarter before Cincinnati tacked on two field goals in the fourth quarter to secure the win.

Rookie Jeremy Hill scored on a 2-yard touchdown run early in the third quarter after an interception by Ryan Mallett for Cincinnati’s only touchdown of the second half.

Mallett struggled in his second career start, finishing with 189 yards passing and often overthrowing open receivers. Houston’s only touchdown came on a 60-yard interception return by Johnathan Joseph in the third quarter.

Monogue Puts Soccer Into Elite Eight

COLLEGE STATION, Texas – Texas A&M senior Kelley Monogue continued her postseason offensive prowess to propel the No. 5 Aggies to a 2-1 win over the No. 12 Notre Dame Fighting Irish in an NCAA Division I Championship third round match at Ellis Field on Sunday afternoon.

Monogue tallied a pair of goals for her third multiple-goal match of the tournament. The McKinney, Texas-native has six goals in the tournament, 17 on the season and 52 for her career.

The win sends A&M to the NCAA Championship quarterfinal (Elite Eight) for the fifth time in school history and it marks the first time Maroon and White will host a quarterfinal match. The Aggies are slated to play Penn State at Ellis Field in a 7 pm match on Saturday, November 29.

The game-winner for Monogue came in the 82nd minute. With the match tied at 1-1, the Aggies were able to rev an engine that idled a bit midway through the match. With midfielders Stephanie Malherbe and Shea Groom causing havoc for the Fighting Irish defense, Notre Dame struggled with a clearance. Monogue pounced on the errant kick just outside the penalty box to the right of the arc and launched a low drive to the left of the keeper to stake A&M to a 2-1 lead with 8:39 remaining in the contest.

After scoring the go-ahead goal, the Aggies were able to clamp down on a Fighting Irish offense that launched 11 shots in the first 36:21 of the second half. Notre Dame was only able to get off one shot in the final 8:39.

Texas A&M pounced on Notre Dame early to take a 1-0 lead in the seventh minute of play. Monogue took a corner kick from the left arc with the sun directly behind her. With the 6-foot Annie Kunz providing a distraction and the sun causing grief, Fighting Irish goalkeeper Kaela Little lost track of the bender from Monogue and it crossed the goal line to give the Aggies the early advantage.

The Maroon and White took the first five shots of the match, but after Monogue’s goal the offensive possession swung to Notre Dame. The Fighting Irish outshot A&M 7-2 for the remainder of the first half and the teams headed into the intermission with the shots even at 7-7.

Notre Dame (14-6-2) continued to press the issue in the second half and it paid off with numerous corner kick opportunities. After swinging and missing on a few chances, the Fighting Irish finally struck gold on their seventh try in the 72nd minute. Sabrina Flores sent the ball in from the left arc and found Karin Muya at the far post for the equalizer.

Less than a minute later Notre Dame would have another corner kick opportunity, but were unable to capitalize on what would prove to be their last solid chance on the offensive end.

For the match, Notre Dame owned a 19-12 edge in shots and an 8-5 advantage in corner kicks. The shots-on-goal were even at 6-6.

Jordan Day made five saves in goal for the Aggies. Little tallied four saves for Notre Dame.

With the win, A&M set a school record with their 21st victory, topping the 20-win effort from 2002. The victory improved Aggies’ unbeaten string to 13 matches. The Maroon and White are 12-0-1 since suffering a 1-0 loss to Florida on October 3.

Texas A&M improved to 23-4-1 all-time in NCAA Championship matches at Ellis field, winning their eighth in a row and the 14th in the last 15.

Notre Dame’s season ended with their 18th trip to the third round of the NCAA Championship while playing in their 22nd consecutive tournament.

POSTMATCH QUOTES

Texas A&M

Head Coach G Guerrieri

On winning a tough-fought game…
“Winning a game like this is huge. To know that we can battle and beat a three-time national champion gives a lot of credit to our girls. We got some valuable experience today that we can use going forward in the tournament.”

Senior forward Kelley Monogue

On her corner kick goal in the first half…
It went over Annie’s (Kunz) head and she’s really tall. She kind of distracted everyone in the box. The defender on the post tried to clear it but she didn’t get around on it fast enough and the ball went in. The wind was switching directions and it helped bend the ball a little bit.”

Senior defender Megan Streight

On the feelings after the second goal…
“It was just a matter of keeping the ball and killing as much time as possible at that point. We knew that we put it away and there was no way we were going to let them get back into the game.”
Notre Dame

Head Coach Theresa Romagnolo

On goalkeeper Kaela Little handling Kelley Monogue’s corner kick for a goal…
“I think she misjudged it. I haven’t seen the replays so it’s hard for me to say but it looked like we misjudged it and unfortunately it went back in the net. The sun was a factor on both goals. The wind was kind of a cross wind today so I mean it affected both teams equally.”

On responding to A&M’s goal…
“I actually feel like after they scored we were the better team for the whole match. I thought that we actually really dominated after getting scored on and had a lot of opportunities that we just didn’t tuck away. A&M did a good job at defending their box and we created a lot of opportunities for ourselves.

“After that [A&M scoring 5 minutes into first half] I feel like we just came alive and dominated the midfield, got a lot of 50/50 balls, came away with possessions, made a lot of opportunities. The effort for me was fantastic after we allowed that goal.”

Thought’s on the season ending…
“Well I think the expectations are to get to the Final Four, so I think at the end of the day there’s disappointment right now. I feel like this was a game that we felt that we should win. Again, credit to Texas A&M for finding a way to score the two goals but at the end of the day I feel disappointed because I feel like we could’ve achieved more today.”

Aggies Celebrate Senior Day With Sweep of Missouri

COLLEGE STATION, Texas – Texas A&M celebrated Senior Day with a 25-15, 25-17, 25-12 sweep against Missouri in the Aggies’ final appearance of the regular season at Reed Arena.

The Aggies outhit Missouri, .349 to .103, and three A&M players posted double-digit kills as A&M won its fourth consecutive match and improved to 19-8 overall and 11-5 in SEC matches. In addition, the Aggies completed the season series sweep against their former Big 12 Conference foes, having defeated Missouri, 3-1, earlier this month in Columbia, Mo.

Missouri, the 2013 SEC champion, falls to 16-16 overall, including 7-10 in conference matches only.

Angela Lowak, Emily Hardesty and Jazzmin Babers had 10 kills each to pace the A&M offense. Setter Stephanie Aiple dished out 37 assists to surpass 1,000 assists for the season and also had 10 digs to post her team-leading seventh double-double of the season. Freshman libero Amy Nettles led all players with 15 digs, and Babers had a match-high five blocks.

A&M never trailed the entire match, and there were only two ties throughout the entire contest. The first tie happened at 11-11 in the opening set before the Aggies broke away as Babers posted one of her four kills in the frame to begin a 9-1 surge. Missouri, which hit .000 in the set, got a kill and a block to get within 20-14 but then committed three consecutive errors, including an attack attempt that got stuff blocked by Shelby Sullivan and Ashlie Reasor. Missouri got a kill but was whistled for being in the net on the ensuing play, putting the Aggies at set point, 24-15. Sullivan then capped the win with a kill.

The Aggies hit .395 to cruise to a 25-17 win in the second set and take a 2-0 lead into the intermission. A&M jumped out to a 5-1 lead and continued to hold a four-point advantage at 12-8 before the Aggies began to widen the gap. A kill by Sullivan followed by back-to-back kills by Lowak gave A&M a 15-8 lead. A&M later used another 3-point run – two Sullivan kills and a Hardesty ace – to build its largest lead at 23-13. Missouri rallied late, outscoring A&M 4-1 and fighting off two set points before hitting into the net to end the set.

The third set was tied at 1-1 when Missouri self-destructed, committing six consecutive errors. A&M, which outhit the Tigers .359 to .075 in the final stanza, continued to pull away, getting a kill from four different players during a 4-0 run that put the Aggies up, 20-9. A&M went on to lead 23-12 when Aggie freshman outside hitter Kiara McGee pounded down back-to-back kills to close out the match.

A&M’s lone senior, Sydney Wilhelm, who joined the team this season as a fifth-year senior after player her previous two seasons on the A&M club team, was honored following the match along with athletic training master students, Nia LeBlanc and Kelly Stoots.

Texas A&M closes out the regular season this week with a pair of road matches in the Magnolia State. The Aggies face Mississippi State, Wednesday at 7 p.m. at the Newell-Grissom Building in Starkville, and then play their regular season finale at Ole Miss, Friday at 4 p.m. at the Gillom Sports Center in Oxford. A&M is a combined 11-0 in the all-time series against both Mississippi schools.

The 64-team NCAA tournament field will be announced Sunday, Nov. 30 at 7:30 p.m. on ESPNU. The Aggies are expecting to make their fourth consecutive appearance in the tournament.

Texas A&M Post-match Quotes:

Head Coach Laurie Corbelli:

On how the team played today against Missouri…
“I’m really pleased with the execution today. We’ve been really hounding the team with serve-receive.  It’s so individual with technique and timing and discipline of the move. Some of the passes today were some of the best we’ve had in a long time. It allowed us to really distribute the ball. It makes it really hard to defend when you’ve got lots of hitters going. We didn’t make a lot of errors which is a great sign for us here at the end of the season. The team mode on the court was very relaxed and very confident and filled with things that we talk about trying to get to. They got to it today.”

On how the team has improved…
“Sometimes when you’re in the midst of it, you don’t see the improvement as much as the others that see us every other week. Yet when I see a match like today’s, I really do see the improvement. I see it mostly in the numbers. I am seeing it now. Coaches, we’re usually the ones that are most critical of our groups, watching our team with a very critical eye, so it’s a joy for me to see them really relaxed and execute the game that they train every day for. That’s really one of the rewards of coaching–when it all comes together. This is the perfect time for us to have it all come together.”

On challenges of finishing the season on the road…
“It’s going to be a great challenge. I really like it, to tell you the truth. It’s going to command our best. Not only at Mississippi State where we haven’t seen them at all this year,  however, then to go to Oxford and play Ole Miss, a team that’s very, very physical. They have been really dynamite at home. It’s going to require that our team give everything we did today and more. We have to get that going on the court. It’s great for us and challenging us to get us ready for post season. I think my team will rise to the challenge, continue to improve and get ready for the playoffs.”

 

Senior outside hitter Sydney Wilhelm:

On how special it has been being the only senior on the team…
“It was incredible. It’s been such a great opportunity. I’m sad to see it go so soon. I couldn’t have asked for a better team to share it with, a better night, a better game we played. It was amazing and everything was perfect today.”

How you felt you played in the third set and overall…
“I think I played okay. Overall the team played really well, and that’s what really matters.”

Advice that you would give, or something the team can remember you by…
“The thing that I want them to remember me by would be to play relaxed, and I think the biggest thing is to have fun. Just be fearless. Go out there and play your heart out. I think a lot of the younger girls can learn from that.”

Postgame Quotes

Head Coach Craig Neal, New Mexico

“It was a tale of two halves in this game. We didn’t play as good a defense in the second half as we did in the first and you’re not going to be able to beat anyone when you allow them to shoot 62.5 percent from the field in the second half. I was impressed with our guys in the first half. I thought they battled but didn’t take the punch in the second half to respond and we couldn’t really get anything going.”

 

“You can’t continually lose four minute game after four minute game and think you’re going to win it. It just starts adding up. So they kind of got on top of us and we couldn’t answer their challenge. It was just a tough game. They have a nice team, they play hard, they’re athletic, they can make shots and I thought we did a good job keeping them off of the offensive boards but a lot of that is because they made such a high percentage of their shots. I was proud of my guys, we had a good game plan in place, we just didn’t execute it in the second half. We’ll go back home and get ready for USC on Nov. 30th.”

“We were prepared for House playing because we knew him from high school and AAU summer teams. We worked our game plan well in the first half, but we had too many turnovers and mistakes in the second half to keep control of the game and it got away from us. We started forcing and rushing things.”

“We missed not having Cullen (Neal) in the game and it put a lot of extra pressure on Hugh (Greenwood) and a lot of guys didn’t step up in wanting to handle the ball and take good shots. We need to relieve some of this pressure from Hugh. We have to get some guys handling the ball better and making some plays. We have to start doing some little things like catching the ball, looking at the rim and shooting open shots, drive and make the right pass. “

“So we will get to work on that and hopefully we will develop and get better. But I really like my team and hopefully the newcomers will get better. We can’t keep making the same mental mistakes over and over. I told the guys if they keep doing it we will keep subbing until we get consistent in doing it all right.”

Head Coach Billy Kennedy, Texas A&M

“We didn’t adjust at all defensively in the first half and got behind.  In the second half we got tougher defensively picked it up defensively we started to score in transition. I am really proud of all of our guys because when you bring in three new players sometimes it can totally disrupt a team. But I like our team’s character and how they stuck together and pulled for each other the whole time. Danuel House is obviously an impact player for us and I really liked Alex Robinson stepping up the way he did and it was a good team win.”

 

“Our three players who became eligible in time for this game were House, Dylan Johns and Tonny Trocha-Morelos. We had great shots in the first half. I told our guys at half time if we take out the bad plays that we made in transition in turning the ball over–we had seven turnovers in first 10 minutes and only five for the rest of the game.  We were getting wide open shots and just weren’t making them and I knew at some point we would make them. Of course in the second half we started knocking them in.

 

“Good teams have a lot of good players, and that’s how you win, you don’t win with good coaching, you have to have good players. I told our guys that good teams win with a lot of good players and great teams win with a lot of good players who play together and are unselfish.  That’s our desire and that’s our goal and we finally have some people here that can do some special things.”

 

“Our guys fought hard. The Dayton game was a war, a high-level game that got us some experience and two days ago a freshman led us in scoring with 16 points in Peyton Allen and then we had a freshman and a junior get double figures in points today. It is going to take a team effort and we have a lot to build upon but we also have a long ways to go in a lot of areas.”

No.1 Aggies Cruise to Adamson Team Title

COLLEGE STATION, Texas — The top-ranked Texas A&M women’s swimming and diving squad cruised to the team crown at the 2014 Art Adamson Invitational on Saturday at the Student Recreation Natatorium.

Aggie Freshmen Shine on Adamson Final Day

COLLEGE STATION, Texas — The Texas A&M men’s swimming and diving team’s freshmen class shined on the final day of the 2014 Art Adamson Invitational on Saturday at the Student Recreation Natatorium.

The Aggies finished the three-day meet in fourth place with 460 points, behind Stanford (1,523), LSU (573) and Grand Canyon (468). Rounding out the team standings were Arizona State (401), TCU (296) and SMU (279).

Highlighting the Aggies’ final day at the Adamson were the freshman trio of Tyler Henschel, Brock Bonetti and Mauro Castillo.

Henschel, from Sherwood Park, Alberta, Canada, earned the Aggies’ first individual win of the meet with a victory in the platform dive. Henschel had finished as runner-up in the springboard dives the first two days, but emerged victorious in the platform with a score of 398.35. Henschel’s score ranks as the fourth-best in Texas A&M history. Teammate Zach Stockton took seventh with a score of 285.55.

Bonetti, from Bakersfield, Calif., sped to a NCAA “B” cut time of 1:44.85 in the 200-yard backstroke while earning a fourth place finish. Bonetti’s time makes him the No. 5 performer in the race in school history.

Castillo, from Zacatecas, Mexico, was seeing his first action at the Adamson after returning from the Central American and Caribbean Games in Veracruz, Mexico, but he was impressive with a third-place finish in the 200 breaststroke with a NCAA “B” cut time of 1:58.35. It also ranks No. 5 on A&M’s all-time 200 breaststroke list.

Also logging a “B” cut was senior Hayden Duplechain, who swam a lifetime best of 1:47.98 in the 200-yard butterfly. His time was just out of the Aggies’ all-time top 10 list in the race.

Junior captain Mitch Glander earned a fourth-place finish in the 1,625 freestyle with a time of 15:45.30.

The Aggies closed out the meet with a fifth-place finish in the 400 freestyle relay with the foursome of senior Luke Shaw, junior Cory Bolleter, junior Antoine Marc and freshman Justin Morey touching the wall in 2:57.21.

Pair of All-American Finishes For Fletcher And Montgomery at NCAA

TERRE HAUTE, Indiana – A pair of All-America honors were earned by Texas A&M seniors Grace Fletcher and Hillary Montgomery as they placed among the top 40 amid a field of 253 finishers during the NCAA Championships held Saturday on the LaVern Gibson Championship Course.

This marks the first time since 2000 that the Aggies had two runners place among the top 40 finishers in the NCAA cross country final when Melissa Gulli (22nd) and Andrea Bookout (26th) led the A&M squad to an 18th place team finish that season.

“Watching these two young ladies and seeing their progression from where they started with us and where they are right now has been fabulous,” stated Texas A&M head coach Pat Henry. “Coach McRaven has done a great job of bringing them along and doing the things they need to do to get to this point. I’m just elated for both of them.”

Texas A&M assistant coach Wendel McRaven noted: “It’s really exciting to have both finish the race that well and earn All-American. We’ve talked a lot about doing what you’re capable of doing and they both accomplished their goal today. I couldn’t be more proud of them because they showed up and raced. They ran their race and took care of business.”

In her national championship debut Fletcher turned in a splendid effort, covering the 6,000-meter course in a time of 20 minutes, 36.9 seconds to place 29th. Montgomery’s second venture in the NCAA Championship was impressive as well and resulted in a time of 20:43.7 for 39th place. Last season, recovering from a fall early in the race, Montgomery placed 190th.

“Prior to the race I was nervous, but also super excited to race especially having a teammate to be able to give me that confidence during the race,” said Fletcher. “I think we used each other to our benefit.

“I had an idea near the finish that I was in a good position, but I also knew it was going to be a battle. In the last 2k everyone was going to fight for those spots. It was an awesome experience and I was really excited when I found out that Hillary earned All-American honors as well.”

Montgomery added: “At the finish I knew I either made All-American or just missed it. Coach McRaven and my parents did a great job hollering out which place I was at different stages of the race. I knew this was my last race in cross country and I knew I had a little more I could give.

“The final sprint to the finish was the most incredible feeling and the most painful. I knew I was close, so I had to keep pushing but my legs felt like blocks. There was so much lactic acid from trying to sprint so hard.”

Iona’s Kate Avery won the women’s individual title in 19:31.6 while SEC champion Dominique Scott of Arkansas was the first SEC finisher in 20:01.3 for sixth place, followed by Tennessee’s Chelsea Blaase in 10th (20:11.6) and Mississippi State’s Rhianwedd Price in 24th (20:30.0).

Fletcher and Montgomery were the fourth and fifth runners to complete the course from the SEC. It marked the first time since 1994, when there were six, in which that many runners from the conference earned All-American honors in the NCAA Championship.

A key to the success Fletcher and Montgomery enjoyed in the national championship race was a fast start. It was an element of the race that carried over from Montgomery’s experience in the 2013 meet.

“Racing here previously helped me a lot,” said Montgomery. “I couldn’t image having a better last cross country race for Grace and I. Last year I got lost up in the crowd during the start, so this year I told Grace we have to get good starts and into a good position. That’s what we did and I think it helped having that experience as well as running with a teammate this time.”

Fletcher added: “The start was definitely quick, but I feel that when Coach McRaven takes us to meets like Wisconsin it helps prepare us for this type of meet. It wasn’t that challenging of a course, but the conditions being windy and a bit muddy added some challenges to the race.”

Running with a teammate also had its benefit to the pair of Aggies, who have been roommates in college and on road trips.

“Being together this whole trip was probably a level of comfort for both,” stated McRaven. “It’s hard to be here by yourself as an individual. They’re roommates and training partners so it was good for them to experience this together as seniors.”

In the battle for the women’s team title No. 1 Michigan State scored 85 points for the championship over Iowa State’s 147. The rest of the top 10 included New Mexico (188), Georgetown (189), Arkansas (209), Oregon (249), Colorado (267), West Virginia (277), Iona (377) and Wisconsin (382).

Aggie Soccer On to Sweet 16 With 7-2 Romp Past Arizona

COLLEGE STATION, Texas – The Texas A&M Aggies took a 5-0 halftime lead and rolled to a 7-2 win over the Arizona Wildcats in an NCAA Division I Women’s Soccer Championship second round match at Ellis Field on Friday evening.

With the victory, the Aggies advanced to the Sweet 16 of the tournament for the third consecutive season and the 13th time overall.

In a rematch of a 2-2 draw played on September 5 at a neutral field in Tempe, Ariz., the Aggies snuffed out an early scoring chance by the Wildcats and then responded quickly with three goals within a five-minute span to take control of the match.

After a nifty pass broke her into the opening with the defense chasing in the 10th minute, Arizona’s Alexandra Doller charged goalward for a one-on-one confrontation with Aggie netminder Jordan Day. As she approached the penalty box, Doller had a touch that was a bit too heavy, allowing Day to charge off her line. Day covered the ground quickly make a sliding save 15 yards out, taking the ball just a yard off Doller’s foot.

Surviving the opening salvo, A&M opened up the flood gates in the 15th minute. Meghan Streight took a free kick from 35 yards out, sending it into Brinson right corner of the six-yard box. Brinson knocked the ball to the left, finding Annie Kunz who sent it to the back of the net with her right foot.

Three minutes later, Karlie Mueller set up the next goal with a throw-in from 30 yards. The wind carried her throw over the head of the defender marking Kelley Monogue, leaving the Aggie senior with no one between her and the woodwork but Arizona goalkeeper Gabby Kaufman. Monogue shot from 10 yards out to the left of the keeper for the 2-0 edge.

The cavalcade of goals continued in the 20th minute. This time Leigh Edwards shot from the left corner of the penalty box, catching the head of Monogue at the six-yard box for Monogue’s second goal of the match and her fourth in the last two games.

Allie Bailey joined the goal parade in the 32nd minute. Shea Groom controlled the ball on the offensive edge of the center circle and weaved through the Arizona defense to the top of the penalty box arc. She sent the ball to the left where Bailey had lost her marker. Bailey launched a missile from the left corner of the penalty box that deflected off a Wildcats’ defender and tucked into the near post.

The Aggies’ lead ballooned to 5-0 with 2:19 left in the first half. It was Bailey scoring again. This time she dribbled down the left side of the pitch to the end line outside the penalty box. With no enticing target for a cross, Bailey dribbled back to the left corner of the box and unleashed a howitzer into the right side-netting.

Any thoughts of an Aggie letdown coming out of the intermission were put to rest early as Groom stripped the ball from a Wildcat defender and scored from 15 yards out less than two minutes into the second half for the for the 6-0 lead.

Arizona (11-8-2) broke the scoring seal in the 51st minute. Jaden DeGracie sent in a flip throw-in on the left touchline, finding the head of Doller to cut the A&M lead to 6-1.

The Maroon and White capped off their scoring in the 58th minute. Kelley Monogue sent a free kick into the penalty box from 30 yards out. She found Groom in an enviable positon, but the senior’s shot hit the left post. The ball-hawking Brinson was in the six-yard box to clean up and give A&M a 7-1 advantage.

After A&M cleared much of its bench, the Wildcats cut the lead to 7-2 in the 65th minute. Gabi Stoian sent a free kick in from 30 yards out on the right. Kaitlyn Lopez got the first shot off in the six-yard box and Day made a save, but the carom came back to Hayley Estopare who sent it into the goal.

The win improved A&M’s unbeaten string to 12 matches. The Maroon and White are 11-0-1 since suffering a 1-0 loss to Florida on October 3.

Texas A&M improved to 22-4-1 all-time in NCAA Championship matches Ellis Field, winning their seventh in a row and 13 of their last 14.

The Aggies’ nine-player senior class set a school record with their 73rd win, topping the 2002 class that notched 72.

Day went the distance in goal for the Aggies, making six saves. Kaufman made eight saves for the Wildcats.

Texas A&M faces Notre Dame in a 1:30 pm match at Ellis Field on Sunday afternoon. Notre Dame defeated Texas on an 86th minute goal earlier in the day.
POSTMATCH QUOTES

Texas A&M

G Guerrieri, Head Coach
Opening statement…
“I was really pleased with the way the team prepared this week. It was a really good week of training, and you could see the end product for half the weekend come out so far. Tremendous offensive performance by a lot of people. We had a lot of people involved in all facets of the game. You could see our players operating and really working off of each other and really thinking and taking situations that were for them and using those opportunities.”

On competing against Arizona…
“They’re a really difficult team to play against. They scored exactly the way we thought they would be most dangerous at: two restarts. We’ve not given up a goal on restarts in quite a while, so that’s something we’ll clean up a little bit moving forward. It’s more a credit to how good Arizona is in those situations.”

Allie Bailey, Senior Forward
On the scoring in the first half…
“I think there’s only been one game this whole season where we scored first and didn’t win. It’s always great to score early and score a lot in the first half to go in at half time up.”

Arizona

Tony Amato, Head Coach
On the match…
“We ran into a really good team tonight. They were firing on all cylinders and it felt like everything they shot in the first half went in. There are a lot of good players on that A&M team and I expect them to make a good run in this tournament. I thought we started well. We had a couple chances, didn’t finish them, and once they got their goal they came after us. It was a long game.”

On how A&M was able to take over the game…
“I think they just started the game with the pedal to the floor. They scored and the crowd got into it, and they just started flying. If soccer had timeouts, I would’ve called one there to let our girls regroup. They just grabbed the momentum at that point and it was just too hard to overcome.

NCAA Rules Danuel House Eligible for 2014-15 Season

COLLEGE STATION, Texas – The NCAA informed Texas A&M on Friday that a waiver for men’s basketball junior guard Danuel House to compete for the Aggies this season has been approved.

“I’m excited about adding another good piece to our team,” Texas A&M head coach Billy Kennedy said. “Danuel brings experience and a scorer to our roster. We are thankful to the NCAA and the A&M Compliance for helping us get this wrapped up and taken care of.”

House, a 6-foot-7 swingman, made the decision to transfer from Houston after averaging 12.9 points and 5.1 rebounds per contest while shooting 43.2 percent from the floor and 32.5 percent from 3-point range in 57 games during his two-year Cougar career.

Last season, the Fresno, Texas, native finished second on the Cougars’ roster in both scoring (13.6 points per game) and rebounding (5.3 rebounds per game) despite being limited to only 24 games due to injury.

A Kyle Macy Freshman All-American during his first collegiate season in 2012-13, House averaged 12.4 points and 4.9 rebounds while dishing out 61 assists and shooting 43.6 percent from the floor to earn Conference USA Freshman of the Year accolades as well as a spot on the C-USA All-Freshman Team. He was honored as C-USA Freshman of the Week on three occasions as a rookie and also earned a spot on the Conference USA Commissioner’s Honor Roll.

Following a banner prep career at Hightower High School, House was rated as a five-star recruit by Rivals.com and 4-star recruit by Scout.com. Additionally, he was regarded as the No. 3 small forward nationally by ESPN and No. 15 in the ESPNU 100 as well as the No. 26 prospect in the country in the Rivals 150.

House will join the Aggies for Sunday’s final game in Puerto Rico against the winner of today’s New Mexico/George Mason game at 1 p.m. (CT). For more information on Texas A&M Basketball visit 12thMan.com and follow @AggieMensHoops on twitter.

Aggie Men’s Basketball Rallies for 59-50 Win Over College of Charleston

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) – Peyton Allen had 14 points, Jalen Jones added 12 and Texas A&M rallied in the second half to get past College of Charleston 59-50 in the consolation round of the Puerto Rico Tip-Off Friday.

The Aggies (2-1) trailed by five with more than eight minutes remaining before outscoring the Cougars 27-13 to end the game. Jordan Green had nine of his 11 points in the final four minutes.

Joe Chealey and Anthony Stitt had 10 points apiece to lead Charleston (1-3).

Stitt helped carry the Cougars offense for the second straight game, but had seven turnovers. It matched the seven turnovers in their opening loss to Connecticut.

Texas A&M plays the winner of New Mexico and George Mason in the consolation final on Sunday. Charleston plays the loser of that game.

After trailing for most of the second half, Texas A&M took a 39-37 lead on a dunk by Antwan Space with about 7 minutes to play. That cushion grew to 46-39 on a pair of free throws by Jordan Green, capping a 14-2 spurt.

The Aggies settled down, and twice cut the lead down to two. But five straight points by Green pushed the lead back up to six with about a minute left.

Charleston controlled the tempo in the first half and got production from its bench, which outscored Texas A&M’s reserves 12-2.

The Aggies also struggled shooting the ball, connecting on just 6 of their 23 field goal attempts, including 2 of 11 from beyond the arc.

Alex Caruso, who led Texas A&M with 17 in their opening game Thursday, was held to just three at the half. The Aggies big rebounder in that game – Kourtney Roberson – had only one in the opening 20 minutes against the Cougars, and two for the game.
