Women’s Hoops To Appear On ESPN’s College Hoops

The defending national champion Texas A&M women’s basketball team will be part of ESPN’s fourth annual College Hoops Tip-Off Marathon on Tuesday, Nov. 15, the television network announced today.
The Aggies’ home contest with 2011 NCAA Sweet 16 team Louisville will tip at 3 p.m. (CT) and is set to be broadcast nationally on ESPNU.

A&M’s matchup is part of 25 consecutive hours of game action in which ESPN celebrates the opening of college basketball with coverage across ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU and ESPN3.com.

This year’s College Hoops Tip-Off Marathon presented by Disney Parks begins Tuesday, Nov. 15, at midnight ET, and will include 19 live matchups – 17 men’s and two women’s – highlighted by ESPN’s 11 game telecasts and a special one-hour College GameDay Driven by State Farm. ESPN3.com will offer two exclusive games as well as a simulcast of every ESPN and ESPN2 telecast.

The Aggies are the only women’s team in the Big 12 Conference represented in the College Hoops Tip-Off Marathon. In addition, it is only the second time ESPN has broadcast two women’s games as Miami at Tennessee in the State Farm Women’s Tip-Off Classic will be televised at 5 p.m. (CT) on ESPN2.

Texas A&M returns three starters and 10 letterwinners from its national championship squad that finished with a 33-5 record last season – the best in school history.

The Aggies take to the court for their Maroon and White game on Saturday, Oct. 29 and host an exhibition game on Sunday, Nov. 6.
