COLLEGE STATION, TX (KXXV) -

Texas A&M’s women’s basketball team was picked to finish sixth in the SEC, as voted on by a select panel of SEC and national media members.

South Carolina tops the order of finish, with Mississippi State, Tennessee, Kentucky, Florida, Texas A&M and Auburn rounding out the top half the league. Missouri, Vanderbilt, Georgia, Arkansas, LSU, Alabama and Ole Miss round out the bottom half.

The Aggies, who have finished in the top four of the league in each of their four seasons in the SEC, are looking for their 12th consecutive trip to the NCAA Tournament in 2016-17. Texas A&M finished second in the SEC in 2015-16, and return two starters, junior Khaalia Hillsman and SEC All-Freshman pick Anriel Howard from that squad.

Texas A&M's first public event for its basketball squads is Maroon Madness on Oct. 27 at 8 p.m. inside Reed Arena, which will include on-court entertainment and other fan-friendly events. The Aggies host an exhibition against Oklahoma City on Nov. 5, and tip off the regular season by hosting Central Arkansas on Nov. 13 at Reed Arena.
