The 5-seed Aggies trailed 58-37 with 8:54 to play on Saturday, before rattling off a 26-3 run to finish the game, holding Penn without a field goal during that span. The 21-point comeback is the largest in the history of the NCAA Tournament, and matches the Texas A&M school record comeback, set in November 2003. Khaalia Hillsman led the Aggies with a career-high 27 points, and capped the comeback with a basket with 19.1 seconds remaining, her fourth last-minute go-ahead or game-tying basket of the year.

No. 15 UCLA, who earned the right to host this game as a 4-seed, defeated Boise State 83-56 in the NCAA First Round on Saturday. Jordin Canada leads the Bruins with 17.9 points and 6.9 assists per game.

The winner of this game advances to the Bridgeport (Conn.) Regional and plays the winner of 1-seed Connecticut and 8-seed Syracuse on Saturday, March 25.
