COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) Courtney Walker scored 17 of her 19 points in the first half and No. 4 Texas A&M routed Houston 94-55 on Saturday to improve to 11-0.

The Aggies are 11-0 for only the second time in school history, following a 12-0 start in 2008-09.

Jada Terry added 11 points for Texas A&M. The Aggies led by at least 30 points over the final 11:34.

Marche Amerson led Houston (3-5) with 10 points.

A&M coach Gary Blair said despite Walker's strong first half, she needed to clean up her game after committing four turnovers in the first 20 minutes. Walker didn't commit a turnover in the second half.

''We talk about being a complete player, and she played better in the second half, even though she only scored one basket,'' Blair said.

The taller Aggies dominated the Cougars 54-12 in points in the paint, and capitalized on 15 Houston turnovers by holding a 29-11 advantage in points off turnovers.

''The one thing we can't simulate is their pressure in practice,'' Houston coach Ronald Hughey said.

TIP INS:

Texas A&M: The Aggies have won five of the last seven meetings between the old Southwest Conference foes.

Houston: The Cougars lead the series 33-25.

UP NEXT:
