Double Time?

Don't count out the defending champs. Texas A&M loses point guard Sydney Colson (6.1 assists per game) and post Danielle Adams (a team-high 22.3 points), but it has three starters returning to College Station, including clutch-shooting 6-foot forward Tyra White and 5'6" guard Sydney Carter, the nation's best perimeter defender. Coach Gary Blair is high on Kelsey Bone, a 6'4" post who sat out last season after transferring from South Carolina, where she led the SEC in rebounding as a freshman in 2009--10. And the Aggies' freshman class will include 6'7" center Rachel Mitchell, a top 50 recruit, and Alexia Standish, who replaces Colson at the point. Says Blair, "We could be as good, if not better, because of our depth."
