COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) Kayla Wells scored a season-high 25 points to lead No. 18 Texas A&M to an 88-43 rout of Texas Southern on Thursday night.

Hoppie finished with 14 points and Nixon had 12 points and five assists. Aaliyah Patty added 10 points for the Aggies.

Texas A&M opened the game on a 15-5 run and led 27-11 after the first quarter. Alisa Knight's jumper cut the Texas Southern deficit to 31-20 in the second, but the Aggies closed on a 18-5 run for a 24-point halftime lead.
