LOS ANGELES (AP) - Chennedy Carter scored 26 points and Kayla Wells added 16 to lead No. 6 Texas A&M to a 74-64 victory over USC on Saturday.
Carter had at least 20 points for the third consecutive game for the Aggies (4-0).
Aaliyah Wilson made a 3-pointer from the left wing to give Texas A&M its first lead of the game at 27-25. It would never lose it.
Freshmen Endyia Rogers scored 20 points and Alissa Pili added 12 points for USC (3-2).
USC got off to a good start, scoring three of the game’s first four baskets and led 21-19 after the first quarter. The Aggies responded, especially with their physicality inside. The Aggies had six offensive rebounds in the first half and out rebounded USC, 22-14 after two quarters.
Kyra White had two steals off the bench in the first half for the Trojans.
