Texas A&M Women's Basketball Defeats Auburn 69-67

The Texas A&M Aggies were too much for the Auburn Tigers tonight as the Aggies win a close fought battle 69-67. Auburn had a 30-22 lead at the half, but behind Chennedy Carter's 28 points, Texas A&M stormed back to take an 11-point lead in the fourth-quarter. Auburn would not go down without a fight though, scraping their way back and tying it up at 67 with a minute to go. Carter hit a running lay-up in the final minute to the Aggies up for good.  Rebounding was a key factor in this game and ultimately contributed to Texas A&M winning the game, out rebounding Auburn 39-30. More offensive rebounds means more second chances and the Aggies made the most of it, putting up 13 second chance points compared to Auburn's nine.  Texas A&M's Chennedy Carter led all scorers with 28 and Janiah McKay was the leading scorer for the Tigers with 17 points.  Auburn plays its second straight ranked opponent Sunday when the Tigers travel to Columbia, Missouri, to face-off against No. 25 Missouri.
