Women’s basketball team claim close victory against Missouri

The Aggies need every win they can get to better their NCAA Tournament resume. On Thursday, A&M took care of business in a 55-48win over Missouri (12-11,2-8 SEC). The Aggies were led by Courtney Walker, who scored 17 points in the win.
It was a back and forth game in the first half, with the largest lead being seven by the Aggies. Ball security was a key for the Aggies, as they only had five turnovers in the game.
Walker added seven rebounds in the win. Chelsea Jennings contributed off the bench as well, scoring eight points and grabbing three rebounds. Courtney Williams also scored eight points with four rebounds.
Jordan Jones reached double figures with 10 points, four rebounds and three assists.
The Aggies shot well to close the first half and went into the locker room with a 28-21 lead at the break.
A&M played good defense, forcing 21 turnovers, which the Aggies turned into 17 points. Achiri Ade led the Aggies with eight rebounds in the game and had a solid game in the paint.
The Aggies tried extending their lead in the second half, stretching it to a nine-point advantage. However, the Tigers cut the lead to as little as three, but big shots from Jones and Walker pushed the lead back to seven.
The Tigers would not go away, again cutting the lead down to four late in the second half, but the Aggies made their free throws down the stretch to put the game away.
The win moves the Aggies to 18-5 (6-3 SEC). A&M travels to No. 18 Mississippi State on Sunday afternoon.
