LSU women’s basketball survives at Texas A&M, moves to 23-0 on the season

LSU women’s basketball’s streak of perfection continued on Sunday afternoon as the team survived a late scare from the Texas A&M Aggies, who played a lot better than their last-place spot in the SEC standings would have indicated, in a 72-66 win.

The No. 3 Tigers controlled the early goings of the game and led by as much as 17 in the second quarter, but a rally from the Aggies made things a bit to close for comfort at the end. TAMU never led in this game, but it did cut the LSU lead down to four with just 1:45 to play.

Ultimately, though, the Aggies couldn’t overcome huge games from a pair of Tigers. Angel Reese led the team in scoring again with 26 points, while Alexis Morris scored 22 before fouling out.

LSU moves to 23-0 on the season and 11-0 in SEC play ahead of what will be the biggest contest of the entire season against No. 1 South Carolina on the road next Sunday. The Gamecocks are the only other undefeated team in Division I.
