NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Morgan Batey made two free throws with 2.2 seconds to go to lift No. 16 Vanderbilt to a 71-69 victory Sunday against No. 17 Texas A&M.
Batey drove from the right wing to draw the foul on A&M's Tori Scott for the game-winning free throws.
Karla Gilbert had just pulled Texas A&M even on a three-point play with 10.2 seconds left. The Aggies had previously pulled to within one point three times in the final 2:25.
Batey finished with 17 points and scored nine of Vanderbilt's last 11 points. Christina Foggie added 14 points and Jasmine Lister had 11 for the Commodores (17-5, 6-3 SEC).
Gilbert had 26 points and 12 rebounds to lead the Aggies (17-6, 7-2), and Tavarsha Scott-Williams scored 14 points and grabbed nine rebounds.
Texas A&M took its first lead at 40-39 on Gilbert's layup with 12:38 left and played back-and-forth the rest of the way.
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.
