Jackson, Louis lead LSU over No. 14 Texas A&M women 80-78
BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Chloe Jackson scored 27 points and Raigyne Louis added 26 and LSU upended No. 14 Texas A&M 80-78 on Sunday.
The Lady Tigers (16-7, 8-4) shot 53 percent in taking down their third Top 25 team in their past five games and joined the Aggies (19-7, 8-4) in a fifth-place tie in the Southeastern Conference.
Texas A&M got within 79-78 after a 3-pointer by Danni Williams with 17 seconds left. Louis made a free throw and LSU got the ball back after Khayla Pointer created a double team on Khaalia Hillsman and forced a jump ball. But a long inbounds pass went awry and the Aggies got a final chance. Chennedy Carter drove the floor, hounded by Williams, and missed a hurried 3-pointer.
Hillsman scored 23 points, Williams 21 and Anriel Howard had 13 with 11 rebounds while Carter, the nation’s leading freshman (21.5 ppg), scored just eight points.
The Aggies shot 57 percent but were outscored 18-4 off turnovers.
