Lady Vols fall to A&M in OT, end 15-game winning streak

Once in the top five, Texas A&M suffered its fifth consecutive Southeastern Conference basketball loss as the Aggies fell 75-62 to No. 24 Tennessee on Saturday at Thompson-Boling Arena in Knoxville.

Tennessee led by as many as 14 at 65-51 with 6:27 remaining, but Texas A&M (11-6, 0-5 SEC) put together a quick 8-0 run to cut the lead to six with 3:41 to go.

The Vols (12-4, 3-2 SEC) forced 17 Texas A&M turnovers, the second-most of the season for the Aggies, on their way to a third-straight SEC win.

The No. 6 Lady Vols dropped their first game of the season to No. 17 Texas A&M, 79-76, on Thursday night. From there, the Vols finished strong, ending the game on a 10-3 run. The London, England native rewarded UT with a 12-point, five-rebound performance of her own. Admiral Schofield and Jordan Bone also scored in double figures, with 12 and 10 points respectively. However, the Aggies, who got 16 points from Admon Gilder, 13 from DJ Hogg and 10 from Tonny Trocha-Morelos, have since gone into a slump. After scoring 7 consecutive points, Tennessee led 13-10.

The Vols battled their way to a 36-28 halftime advantage, with seven different Vols scoring in the opening period. Tennessee didn't allow Texas A&M to draw any closer than six points in the second half as Jordan Bowden led the Volunteers with 15 points. Texas A&M finished the game with eight made 3-pointers.

Big 12 Week 3 Preview: Texas Tech and Kansas
Here's the list: at No. 8 Texas Tech, at home versus No. 12 Kansas and Texas, at No. 16 TCU and at home against No. 21 Kentucky. Bill Self's team took care of Iowa State in Lawrence on Tuesday night, and this weekend, the Jayhawks will host Kansas State.

The Aggies came to Tennessee after suffering back-to-back one-point defeats, losing 69-68 to LSU when the Tigers drained a deep 3-pointer at the buzzer, and then falling at Kentucky 74-73 last Tuesday.

Williams was averaging an SEC-best 22.3 points in league games through the first 4 contests. Saturday's win follows Tennessee's 92-84 road victory at Vanderbilt on Tuesday night and should boost the Vols in the rankings.

Texas A&M pushed the pace with 14 points off of fast breaks versus an opposing 13 points off of fast breaks.

Barnes' 647 wins rank eighth among active Division I coaches.
