Texas A&M Women's Basketball: No. 17 Aggies upset No. 6 Tennessee

While the Lady Vols came into the night hoping to improve to a flawless 4-0 in the SEC, the Ags would prevail in the end, handing Tennessee their first loss of the season, with a 79-76 performance that was as close as they come. After scoring 7 consecutive points, Tennessee led 13-10.

The first quarter was highlighted by inside play, as each team recorded 16 points from inside the paint. Russell scored a team-high 21 points to go with 10 rebounds. Williams added 22 of her own while guard Chennedy Carter scored 21.

Tennessee would jump out to a 74-70 lead in the first few minutes of overtime before the Aggies finally got their groove back. Hillsman remained ideal from the floor, however, going 5-for-5 with 10 points and seven boards for A&M.

Tennessee senior center Mercedes Russell, who was coming off a 33-point performance against Vanderbilt Sunday, put the Lady Vols back in front by two with 19 seconds to play thanks to a right hand shot near the basket that bounced off the backboard and in.

Nared found her stroke from behind the arc in the third quarter, knocking down three 3-pointers for nine points in the period. Williams would make her three free throws to give Texas A&M the lead.

It seemed as if No. 17 Texas A&M could not buy itself a basket, missing 19-straight shots over an nearly 11 minute span between the fourth quarter and overtime.

Freshman guard Evina Westbrook made two mistakes in the five-minute overtime that cost the Lady Vols. She went 6 for 17 from the field, shooting 35.3%.

With 1:15 on the clock, Nared drove the lane and finished on a layup to tie the score at 70. Both teams were getting after it.

"It was a great ball game, win or lose, [it was] a great ball game", said A&M head coach Gary Blair after the hard-fought victory. After jumping ahead by four, Tennessee struggled on offense down the stretch, and allowed A&M to tie the game at 74 on a Williams jumper.

Williams finally stopped the bleeding with a jumper with 47 seconds left in overtime.

Tennessee wasn't as effective in turning points into turnovers - 15 points from turnovers, compared to Texas A&M's 18.
