COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) - Tyra White scored 18 points in her return from injury and defending national champion Texas A&M used a big second half run to pull away from Albany and win 69-47 in the first round of the NCAA tournament Saturday.

White had missed the last three games with a left foot injury. She got going early, scoring 12 points in the first half, and added four points and a steal in a decisive second-half run.

The Great Danes (23-10) had scored six straight points to tie it early in the second half before A&M used a 17-4 run to take a 49-36 lead with about 13 minutes remaining.

The Aggies (23-10) were making their school-record seventh straight tournament appearance and Albany was in the tournament for the first time.
