Walker scored 14 points after the break on 7-of-7 shooting to spark the A&M comeback win. Walker was the only Aggie in double figures, but three others, Kelsey Bone, Kristi Bellock and Adrienne Pratcher, each poured in eight. Bone narrowly missed yet another double-double with a game-high nine rebounds.
Bone is coming off a career night against Ole Miss on Thursday, she pulled down a career-high 17 rebounds to go along with 24 points.

Joining Bone in double figures was Pratcher with 13 points along with a career high six rebounds. Freshman Courtney Williams scored 11 and senior Bellock finished with 10 points on 5-of-7 shooting.
