Texas A&M’s defense was good enough to upset two No. 1 seeds. The Aggies will find out Tuesday night if it is good enough to win their first national championship.
VanDerveer should have quite a week ahead. Her top-seeded Cardinal (33-2) take on No. 2 seed Texas A&M in the national semifinals at the Final Four. She could also be named to the Naismith Hall of Fame on Monday night.
Both the San Francisco Giants and Oakland A’s are back in the Bay Area after spring training in the desert, and will meet in exhibition games this week. Madden notes the Giants’ playoff run and World Series effectively extended their season by a month.
