Vols win 75-62 over Texas A&M

Tennessee also controlled the paint, out-rebounding the Aggies 38-29, posting 14 offensive boards.

Westbrook would then turn the ball over immediately on the next possession on a pass attempt to Jaime Nared, which sealed the Lady Vols' first loss of the season. The Aggies have now defeated Tennessee in each of the last three SEC regular seasons. After the teams traded baskets for most of the quarter, a 7-0 run by Texas A&M highlighted by two straight field goals from Williams put the Aggies in front, and they carried a three-point lead into the final 10 minutes.

Next on Tennessee's slate is a road match at Missouri on Wednesday, Jan. 17, where the Vols will face former head coach Cuonzo Martin.

It's Tennessee's first three-game win streak in the SEC since last season, when the Vols turned that trick between January 21-31 with victories over Mississippi State, Kentucky and Auburn. Williams chipped in 22 of her own while going 3-for-7 from 3-point range.

Texas A&M had the biggest lead in the game with an advantage of 8 at one point.

Texas A&M knocked Tennessee from the ranks of the undefeated on Thursday night. The Aggies went scoreless over the final four minutes of regulation, shooting 0-for-13 from the floor during that span. Tennessee again had a chance to win the game, but turned it over.

Tennessee's guards got it done against Texas A&M.

Tennessee had three players score in double digits, led by Mercedes Russell who had a double-double with 21 points and 10 rebounds. Texas A&M finished the game with eight made 3-pointers. Coming off a career-high 37 points in the win at Vanderbilt, Williams was held to 9 points on 3-of-13 shooting and added 5 rebounds.

Down 76-74 with seven seconds left, Williams was fouled on a three-point shot. The game will be televised on ESPN2.
