Jones, Jackson give No. 15 A&M women 64-63 win over Georgia

By The Associated Press

COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) — N'dea Jones earned her ninth-straight double-double, Aahliyah Jackson scored her only point with one second left and No. 15 Texas A&M edged Georgia 64-63 on Thursday night.

After Jackson made 1 of 2 free throws Gabby Connally threw in a 3-pointer at the buzzer for the Bulldogs.

Georgia scored the first eight points of the game but the Aggies scored the next eight and the teams were tied at 12 after one quarter. After a Connally 3-pointer, Texas A&M went on an 18-1 run and led 35-20 at halftime.

The Bulldogs got as close as nine and trailed by 11 entering the final quarter. They got within 61-60 on a Jenna Staiti jumper with 12 seconds left but Kayla Wells made two free throws with eight to go and Jackson the clincher after Georgia missed a 3-pointer.

Jones had 21 points and 10 rebounds for the Aggies (18-3, 6-2 Southeastern Conference) who played their fifth game without leading scorer Chennedy Carter and won their fourth-straight. Carter, who sprained an ankle on Jan 9, returned to practice this week and is day-to-day.

Ciera Johnson added 17 points and Wells 14 for Texas A&M.

Connally had four 3-pointers and 20 points for the Bulldogs (12-9, 3-5), Staiti added 16 and Maya Caldwell 15.
