COLUMBIA, Mo. -- Courtney Walker scored 21 points as No. 17 Texas A&M won its ninth straight game and remained undefeated in conference play with a 62-57 win over Missouri on Thursday night.
After trailing for much of the first half and 33-31 at halftime, Texas A&M (16-4, 6-0 SEC) took the lead early in the second and never relinquished it.
The Tigers (13-6, 2-4) hung around, though, and cut their deficit to 60-56 with 1:15 to play. Missouri then got the ball back after a missed 3-pointer by Texas A&M, but the Tigers missed 3s on their next two possessions and the Aggies prevailed.
Courtney Williams added 14 points and went 6-of-11 from the field for Texas A&M.
Morgan Eye led Missouri with 19 points while Brianna Kulas added 14 points and 11 rebounds for the Tigers, who have lost four of their past five.
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.
Mechelle Voepel explains what the biggest transition is for Breanna Stewart moving from UConn to the WNBA, as well as if she will be perceived around the league as a villain.
