BRYAN-COLLEGE STATION, Texas – The Texas A&M women’s basketball team and second-year head coach Joni Taylor open the 2023-24 season at 6 p.m. on Thursday inside Reed Arena versus A&M-Corpus Christi.
The Maroon & White ended last year by becoming the first 13 seed to advance to the quarterfinals of the SEC Tournament. The Aggies return over 70% of the offensive production from last season, including 2023 All-SEC Freshman Team selections Janiah Barker and Sydney Bowles. Additionally, Taylor added a bevy of elite transfers during the offseason, highlighted by Aicha Coulibaly and Endyia Rogers who have multiple all-conference selections from the SEC and PAC-12, respectively.
Barker and Coulibaly earned Coaches Preseason All-SEC First and Second Team honors, respectively, this preseason. The duo was also named to the Cheryl Miller (Coulibaly) and Katrina McClain (Barker) Award watchlists. A&M signed the No. 20 freshman class with the No. 1 player in Texas, Kylie Marshall, leading the group.
