“We played a pretty well-executed basketball game. This team is very unselfish in what we need to do to win. I liked my basketball team tonight. They rarely made the same mistake twice.” - Texas A&M Head Coach Gary Blair
Event: Stephen F. Austin Game, Reed Arena, Texas A&M University, 1/3/08
As part of Texas A&M head coach Gary Blair’s reunion tour against his former schools and coaching colleagues during the 2007-08 season, the Aggies took care of business with a 31-point rout of Stephen F. Austin to extend the program’s home court win streak to a school-best and nation-leading 26 consecutive games at Reed Arena. Senior Morenike Atunrase registered a game-high 22 points just five games after returning to the lineup from surgery to correct a non-healing stress fracture in her right tibia. Eight of the 12 A&M players who entered the ballgame scored in the first half and all but two contributed to the scoring column by the final buzzer.
