COLUMBIA, S.C. -- Kelsey Bone scored 13 points, including the game-winning basket with 8.7 seconds left, in her return to South Carolina as No. 14 Texas A&M outlasted the 15th-ranked Gamecocks 50-48 on Sunday.
Bone was the Southeastern Conference's newcomer of the year in 2010 when she was a Gamecocks freshman before transferring. She was bottled up most of the second half by South Carolina's defense, but grabbed Adrienne Pratcher's missed 3-pointer and went up strong for the decisive basket.
Ieasia Walker's 3-point try was off the mark as South Carolina's six-game win streak ended.
Bone also collected 15 boards for her 11th double-double of the season and her fourth of the SEC season.
Pratcher and Courtney Walker each had 10 points for the Aggies (19-5, 9-1), who were held to their second fewest points this season.
Ieasia Walker led South Carolina (20-4, 8-3) with 16 points.
Stephanie White, Lin Dunn and Carolyn Peck know what it takes to succeed in women's basketball. Their return to the college level should boost the SEC and is good for the game overall.
