When Texas A&M women's coach Gary Blair looked at the schedule before the season, he figured the Lady Aggies would need to be 6-2 heading into a difficult second half of the Big 12 season if they wanted to have a chance at repeating as conference champions.
As the Lady Aggies are 2-4, that won't be possible. Now Blair is looking at what they need to do in order to just make the NCAA tournament.
"I think this is a big week for the program if we want to use the letters NCAA," Blair said. "We need to figure out how to get to 4-4."
The Lady Aggies host Missouri on Tuesday and then travel to Lubbock to play Texas Tech on Saturday. Those two teams have a combined record of 3-9 in the Big 12.
