Congratulations to the Texas A&M-Corpus Christi women’s basketball team on a tremendous run at the Southland Conference’s post-season tournament.

The Islanders played some incredible basketball before falling in yesterday’s championship game to Abilene Christian, 69-68, in the final game with a berth in the NCAA Tournament riding on the outcome. Texas A&M-Corpus Christi was playing in its fourth game in four days.

Coach Royce Chadwick’s team loses only one senior from this season’s 17-16 team. We can’t wait to see how well they do next season.
