COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) - Courtney Williams scored 13 points as No. 23 Texas A&M outlasted Washington 74-68 Saturday night.

Texas A&M (6-2) used an 11-2 first-half run on their way to a 36-28 lead at the break. The Aggies jumped on Washington (2-3) to start the second half, ripping off an 11-0 run to take a 47-28 lead.

Washington responded with an 18-2 run of its own, cutting the lead to 49-46 on a Jazmine Davis jumper. After a brief Aggies run, Chantel Osahor completed a three-point play and hit a 3 to again cut the lead to three.

Williams drained 3-pointers on back-to-back possessions to push the lead back to 61-52 with eight minutes to play. The Huskies would pull within four but the Aggies always had an answer.

Davis finished with 21 points while Talia Walton added 15 for Washington. Both players took 21 shots.
