A’Quonesia Franklin • Texas A&M
Basketball • 2004-08
A’Quonesia Franklin was a three time All-Big 12 selection and two-time Associated Press Honorable Mention All-America selection, but perhaps more importantly, helped lead the Aggies’ resurgence in women’s basketball. In Franklin’s first season, the Aggies returned to the postseason for the first time since 1996 with a trip to the WNIT Quarterfinals. The next three seasons, the Aggies advanced to the NCAA Tournament each year, including their first trip to the Elite Eight in 2008. Franklin still ranks third at Texas A&M in career assists and three-pointers made. Her 173 assists in the Aggies’ Elite Eight Season of 2007-08 ranks eighth at Texas A&M. She now coaches for one of A&M’s SEC rivals, Mississippi State, under one of her college coaches, Vic Schaefer.
