Texas Women Basketball Team: Texas A&M’s rising star, Janiah Barker, secured her spot on the All-Southeastern Conference (SEC) women’s basketball first-team lineup for the preseason. Meanwhile, the Aggies’ skilled senior guard, Aicha Coulibaly, a transfer from Auburn, earned a well-deserved spot on the second team.
The Aggies, demonstrating their prowess, were projected to finish sixth in the SEC, surpassing expectations set by the media poll, which had them two spots lower.
The coaches’ predictions for the SEC standings placed LSU in the top spot, followed by South Carolina, Tennessee, Ole Miss, Mississippi State, and the Aggies in sixth. The ranking continued with Arkansas, Alabama, Georgia, Florida, Missouri, Auburn, Vanderbilt, and Kentucky.
The first-team All-SEC lineup featured remarkable talents such as LSU’s Angel Reese and Hailey Van Lith, Ole Miss’ Madison Scott, Mississippi State’s Jessika Carter, Missouri’s Hayley Frank, South Carolina’s Kamilla Cardoso, and Tennessee’s Rickea Jackson.
On the second team, alongside Coulibaly, were notable players like Arkansas’ Makayla Daniels, LSU’s Flau’jae Johnson and Aneesah Morrow, Mississippi State’s Erynn Barnum and JerKaila Jordan, South Carolina’s Te-Hina Paopao, and Tennessee’s Tamari Key and Jewel Spear.
While the media’s All-SEC teams included five players on the first team and six on the second, the talent and competition in the SEC women’s basketball scene remain as fierce as ever.
