WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. – The Texas A&M women’s basketball team will take on Purdue in the first road game of the season on Thursday, Nov. 16 at 6 p.m. inside Mackey Arena.

The Aggies and head coach Joni Taylor travel to Purdue (1-1) with a 2-0 record. Lauren Ware has dominated on defense and on the boards with a team-high 12.0 rebounds a game. Ware currently is tied for fourth in the nation in blocks per game, swatting away 4.0 shots each outing. Endyia Rogers and Aicha Coulibaly have paced the Maroon & White on offense, as Rogers is tied for seventh in the nation in turnover-to-assist ratio (10:1) while Coulibaly leads the Aggies in scoring, averaging 15.5 points per game.
