No. 10 Texas A&M falls to No. 8 UK

(Continued)

COLLEGE STATION, Texas —

Kentucky had just finished a big run when the Aggies went on one of their own, using a 16-6 spurt to cut the lead to 64-60 with about 412 minutes remaining. Kentucky’s offense went cold during that stretch and the Wildcats didn’t score for 3 minutes.

Walker had six points to power the run for the Aggies.

Texas A&M got within two early in the second half before Kentucky went on a 16-4 run to push the lead to 58-44 midway through the period. The Aggies went without scoring for more than 5 minutes and had four turnovers to help the Wildcats build the lead.

Bone, who won Southeastern Conference player of the week honors after scoring 31 points in the Aggies’ last game, was held to nine points with 10 rebounds on Monday.

“We just tried to swarm her and get as many help defenders as we could,” Kentucky’s A’dia Mathies said.

Mathies added 13 points, all in the second half, for the Wildcats. Kastine Evans scored 12 and Samarie Walker had nine points and 11 rebounds.

The Aggies committed 18 turnovers that led to 29 points for Kentucky.

Bellock had 12 points and 15 rebounds for A&M, and Adrienne Pratcher scored 12.

Texas A&M jumped out to a 9-2 lead and was up by six points with about 14 minutes left in the first half. The Wildcats used a 19-6 run to overcome the deficit and take a 28-21 advantage with 6 minutes left before halftime. Walker and Janee Thompson scored six points apiece during that span, and the Aggies had three turnovers.

Kentucky led 40-34 at halftime.
