Aggies top James Madison 85-69 in NCAA 2nd round

COLLEGE STATION, Texas – Courtney Williams scored 23 points and Karla Gilbert added 20 points with 15 rebounds to help Texas A&M to an 85-69 win over James Madison on Tuesday night in the second round of the NCAA tournament.

The victory sends the third-seeded Aggies to the round of 16 for the sixth time and their first since 2012. They missed reaching the third round last season after losing to Nebraska at home in this round.

The Aggies used an 8-2 run to build a 10-point lead early in the second half and answered each time James Madison cut the advantage. The Dukes got within seven points with about seven minutes remaining, but A&M used an 8-0 run to make it 81-66. Kirby Burkholder led 11th-seeded James Madison with 20 points and 10 rebounds.
