TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) — N’dea Jones had her seventh consecutive double-double, Aaliyah Wilson hit a 3-pointer with 30 seconds to play, and No. 15 Texas A&M rallied from an 11-point second-half deficit to beat Alabama 79-74 on Thursday night.
Jones, the only player in the SEC with a double-double in every conference game this season, finished with 21 points and 11 rebounds. Shambria Washington scored 20 points and Ciera Johnson 15 and Kayla Wells added 15 apiece for the Aggies (16-3, 4-2 Southeastern Conference).
Texas A&M are 9-0 all-time against the Crimson Tide (11-8, 1-5).
Jordan Lewis made two free throws to give Alabama a 73-72 lead with 44 seconds to play but Wells drove the baseline and found Wilson in the left corner for the go-ahead 3.
Jasmine Walker led the Crimson Tide with 18 points and Lewis added 17 and seven assists.
Alabama took its biggest lead when Ashley Knight’s layup made it 52-41 with 4:27 left in the third quarter. Washington sandwiched a pair of 3-pointers around a layup by Jones to make it a three-point game about two minutes later and Texas A&M took its first lead since early in the second quarter when Jones converted a three-point play with 3:52 to play.
