COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) — Courtney Walker scored 22 points, going 10 of 20 from the field and making a critical layup in the game's final minute as No. 19 Texas A&M edged No. 16 LSU 72-67 on Sunday.

With Texas A&M (18-6, 8-2 SEC) leading by a point, Walker made a layup with 54 seconds left to extend the Aggies' lead to 70-67. Jeanne Kenney then missed a jumper for LSU (18-6, 7-4) and Texas A&M made two free throws down the stretch to help seal the win.

Texas A&M held the Lady Tigers scoreless for the final 5½ minutes of the first half, using its defense to go on a 12-0 run that spanned into the beginning of the second and take a 29-24 lead. LSU remained close throughout but never regained the lead.

Courtney Williams added 16 points for the Aggies while Danielle Ballard led LSU with 22.
