Weekend By The Numbers

16 - Draft position for former women's basketball star Danielle Gant. Gant, selected in the second round of the WNBA Draft by the Chicago Sky, becomes A&M's highest-ever and fifth all-time draft pick.

59 - Pitches thrown by Rhi Kliesing in the softball team's 6-0 shutout of Texas Tech on Saturday. The Red Raiders managed just two infield singles, while only three balls left the infield for routine fly outs.

954 - Number of fans who saw Erin Glasco's two-out, two-run walk-off home run Friday at the Aggie Softball Complex. A&M was down 4-3 in the bottom of the seventh before Glasco ripped the first pitch she saw over the left field fence to give the Aggies a 5-4 win.

3 - Hits allowed by Brooks Raley during his complete-game win over Kansas State on Friday. Raley struck out 11 and set the side down in order in five innings.

39.13 - First place time for the 4 x 100 relay team of Tran Howell, Gerald Phiri, Chris Dykes and Justin Oliver at the UCLA Invitational. The Aggies out-paced two professional teams in the race, including the World Class team that featured two medalists from the Beijing Olympics.

6-0-1 - The soccer team's record in spring matches this season. A&M's most recent victory was a 2-0 decision over Oklahoma State on Friday night.

25 - Very early 2009-10 preseason ranking for the men's basketball team, as determined by writer Andy Katz. Katz picked four Big 12 teams in his ranking, including No. 1 Kansas, No. 4 Texas, No. 18 Oklahoma and A&M.
