'Tremendous year': Texas A&M coach Joni Taylor reflects on loss vs. Nebraska in NCAA Tournament

The Texas A&M women's basketball team narrowly lost to Nebraska in the first round of the NCAA Tournament on Friday night in Corvallis, Oregon.

After the loss, Aggies head coach Joni Taylor reflected on the progress that her team made this season.

"Tough, tough game. I'm really proud of our team's fight to come back and take the lead being down as much as we were going into halftime and the third quarter," Taylor recalled. "We've had a sense of resilience and fight all year long and really proud of how we handled ourselves and came back in the game. Obviously, Nebraska is a really good team, it came down to the end and they made more plays than we did.

"I don't want to lose sight of the step we made from year one to year two in our program. You're looking at a team who won two conference games last year, nine games total. In year two we're sitting here at the NCAA Tournament, which was one of the goals for our program. So I don't want how this game ended to overshadow the tremendous year that we had in year two of our program. We have our team returning with the exception of very few, so I'm really excited about the future of our program.

"Hats off to Nebraska, they made more plays than we did, they were really good tonight. We just didn't have enough time on the clock to win the game."
