A&M Advances to NCAA Sweet 16

COLLEGE STATION (AP)–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.

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.
