Bookstore Helps Fans Celebrate Texas A&M’s Advancement to NCAA Final

April 04, 2011

Texas A&M Advances to NCAA FinalFor the first time in school history, the Texas A&M University women’s basketball team advanced to the NCAA National Championship Game with a stunning 63-62 victory over number-one seed Stanford in the nail-biting closing seconds of the game. The Aggies will play for the national title on Tuesday, April 5.

The second-seeded and seventh ranked Texas A&M University team has a lot to celebrate this year as the Aggies (32-5) produced its first All-American, Danielle Adams, and broke on to the national stage by beating two number-one seeds on their way to the finals. Upsetting Baylor last week, Texas A&M advanced to the Final Four for the first time ever. Now, they are poised to take it all!

Bookstore Supports the Aggies

The Texas A&M campus has been euphoric throughout NCAA March Madness, cheering the Aggies on through the Sweet 16, Elite Eight, Final Four and now the Championship Final. Along the way, the MSC Bookstore has been supporting the team by providing fans with team spirit apparel. Thanks to our outstanding vendor relationships, every time the team advanced, fans could immediately order merchandise celebrating each victory from the bookstore’s website. Online orders poured in from across the country and our bookstore was ready.

The bookstore’s Facebook page also features team apparel and has become the center for fans looking to share their support and enthusiasm for the team. This same scenario played out last week on the campus of Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) when their men’s basketball team progressed to the Final Four unleashing a torrent of enthusiasm as thousands of fans purchased VCU team merchandise from the bookstore.

“This is the first time the school has made it to the Final Four, let alone the Final,” says Store Manager Holley Scott. “We’re really excited for the team, especially because we know them. The team comes into the bookstore all the time. They’ve worked really hard and deserve each and every win. We’re so proud of them.”

Bookstore Ready for Victory

Should the Aggies win the championship on Tuesday, our bookstore is loaded with updated merchandise on its website including thousands of championship t-shirts, hats, pennants, lapel pins, stickers and banners – all ready to ship within 24 hours.
