DENTON, Texas (AP) _ Achiri Ade and Karla Gilbert combined for 26 points to lead No. 16 Texas A&M to a season-opening win over North Texas, 67-48, Monday.

After Acheil Tac’s layup 4:35 into the contest cut the lead to 8-6, the Aggies rolled off 16 unanswered points to take control of the game.

Ade was 7 of 17 from the field to lead the Aggies with 14 points and eight rebounds. Gilbert shot 6 of 10 from the floor to add 12 points and Tavarsha
Scott-Williams came off the bench to hit 5 of 6 field goal attempts with 10 points.

Briesha Wynn was 5 of 8 from the free throw line to lead the Eagles with 13 points and tied Tac for team-high honors in rebounds with 7 each.

Nelda Roy, Gilbert’s mother, scored 17 points to upset the Aggies in 1988, the last time they played North Texas at Denton.
