Nneka and Kelsey Helped Team USA Win Gold

Bangkok, Thailand -- I want to congratulate Team USA's U19 Women's Team for capturing the gold medal in the 2009 FIBA U19 World Championships with a solid 87 to 71 victory over Spain.

Two players on the U19 USA squad hail from the Houston area -- Nnemkadi (Nneka) Ogwumike (Stanford University, Cy Fair HS) and Kelsey Bone (University of South Carolina, Dulles HS) -- played key roles in the gold medal game.

Ogwumike scored 22 points and pulled down 20 rebounds while Bone added 18 points and six boards.

Ogwumike was named to the All-Tournament Team.

Listen to post-game comments from Nneka and Kelsey.

Congratulations to all of the players as well as U19 head coach Carol Owens (Northern Illinois) and assistant coaches Amanda Butler (Florida) and Bill Fennelly (Iowa State).

Ags Announce Challenging '09-'10 Schedule

COLLEGE STATION, TX -- Texas A&M announced its 2009 - 2010 schedule this afternoon; so, now, I can mark my calendar and plan which games I'll try and cover.

As I mentioned in early July, the Duke Blue Devils come to Reed Arena on Sunday, November 15, to will tip off the Aggies' schedule. The Blue Devils are one of 15 teams on the slate to have reached postseason play a year ago and among six to receive a top four NCAA Tournament seed.

The Aggies will host former Southwest Conference rival Rice on Nov. 18, Stephen F. Austin on Dec. 2, North Texas on Dec. 8, Prairie View A&M on Dec. 28 and Lamar on Jan. 4 to round out its non-conference home slate. The Aggies will return home-and-home dates with travel to Auburn on Nov. 22, TCU on Dec. 12 and women's basketball hotbed New Mexico on Dec. 30. In addition, they will participate in two fall tournaments including the Colliers International Classic on Dec. 5-6 in Berkeley, Calif., and the Las Vegas Holiday Hoops Classic on Dec. 19-20 in Las Vegas. They will face Southern Illinois on Dec. 5 and either host Cal or Colorado State on Dec. 6 in Berkeley, Calif., while they prepare for an NCAA Sweet 16 rematch with Arizona State on Dec. 19 and NCAA Tournament participant Gonzaga on Dec. 20 in Las Vegas.
