Women's Basketball Notebook

Texas A&M's women's basketball squad improved their record to 5-2 after beating McNeese State 74-48 Saturday night at Reed Arena in front of 1,595. Gary Blair and the Lady Ags return to action Wednesday when they host the Louisiana-Monroe Lady Indians.

Record: 5-2
Last Action: Beat McNeese State (2-5), 74-48
Up Next: Louisiana-Monroe (2-4) in College Station
When: Wednesday, December 17 at 7pm

Of Note: Head Coach Gary Blair on the Aggies' ability to capitalize on McNeese turnovers: "We wanted to run. I'm tired of coming back at halftime and looking at the second chance points and fast break points and having zero or two. We did a better job today. For us, 74 points looks like 100."

Williams pushes ahead: Despite an emotional week due to a death in her family, senior guard Toccara Williams continues her assault on the Aggie record book. Williams increased her career steals total to 367. She is the A&M record holder and the Big 12 all-time active leader. Williams ranks No. 27 all-time in the NCAA for total steals. She also increased her career assists total to 579. Williams ranks No. 2 all-time at A&M and is No. 4 all-time in the Big 12.

Who's Hot: Who else? Toccara Williams. She missed practice all week and flew in from Florida shortly before tip-off but managed to score 14 points and grabbed 11 rebounds against McNeese State on Saturday.

About the Lady Indians: The ULM Lady Indians are coming off of a crushing 48-86 loss to 18th-ranked LSU. In the game, ULM was able to force 23 LSU turnovers but only shot 29.2 percent from the floor.
