COLLEGE STATION, Texas - The Texas A&M women's basketball team continues preparations for its upcoming Italy tour, as workouts resume Tuesday inside the Cox-McFerrin Center for Aggie Basketball.
The Aggies initially kicked off their training July 17-19 and are allowed 10 practice dates in advance of their trip. The team has seven practice dates remaining, Aug. 7-9, 11-12 and 14, leading up to its departure for Italy on Thursday, Aug. 16.
