No. 13 Purdue beats No. 4 Texas A&M
Sunday, December 4, 2011
WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) -- Courtney Moses scored 15 points and Brittany Rayburn added 14 to help No. 13 Purdue defeat No. 4 Texas A&M 60-51 on Sunday n the Big 12/Big Ten Challenge.
The defending national champion Aggies (6-1) saw their winning streak end at 12 games. A win would have set a new school record for consecutive victories. They might now face a losing streak -- Texas A&M plays at Connecticut on Tuesday night.
Purdue (7-1) bounced back after a 64-53 loss at No. 7 Duke on Thursday. It was Purdue's first win over a ranked non-conference opponent since beating Texas in 2009, and its first win over a non-conference opponent with both teams ranked since the No. 7 Boilermakers beat No. 5 Kansas State in 2003.
Texas A&M had averaged 80 points per game, but the Aggies shot 28 percent from the field and made just 13 of 27 free throws.
