But the Aggies avoided sending their fans in College Station, Texas, home disappointed with the fourth-largest comeback in women's NCAA tournament history.

"I didn't tell her one thing on that last shot. sometimes you've just got to let the kid go instead of over-coaching", Blair said. They took it right to edge, though, with the game not in hand until Jasmine Lumpkin's steal closed it out.

Chennedy Carter was the hero for the Aggies, putting up an incredible 37-point performance in the comeback win including the game-winning bucket.

However, A&M got back on track with a furious fourth quarter comeback, beating DePaul 27-16 in the final quarter to earn an 80-79 victory and a trip to the second weekend. Sophomore Kelly Campbell contributed another all-around game with 17 points, six rebounds and five assists, while senior Amarah Coleman also finished with 17 points, seven rebounds and five assists before fouling out with 9:05 left in the fourth quarter.

"I don't know if we can press DePaul", Blair explained. She scored 32 in the second half.

The Blue Demons (27-7) reached the second round with a 90-79 win over Oklahoma in the first round on Friday. Parking is $5 at any Reed Arena lot for the game, or free with any valid Texas A&M parking permit. Carter was the only player to hit a 3-pointer for A&M, which went 21 of 29 from the line. A big key, though, was rebounding, as Texas A&M won the board battle 46-34. The Blue Demons would stretch that lead to 45-28 before the Aggies finally started making moves.

Player of the game: Of course, it's Carter. Howard finished with 19 rebounds and also had 18 points.

Texas A&M will get a chance to show off its star freshman for at least one more game, but she and the Aggies will need to get off to a better start if they hope to keep their season going. Carter was still in high school then.

You know the saying "I've seen'em lose and I've seen'em win, but I've never seen'em quit?"
