Rutgers Falls to Texas A&M in NCAA Second Round


BOSSIER CITY, La. -- Danielle Adams had 28 points and 11 rebounds, and Texas A&M stormed into the third round of the NCAA tournament with a 70-48 victory over Rutgers on Tuesday night.

Syndey Carter added 14 points and Tyra White had 11 for the second-seeded Aggies (29-5), who were upset in last year's second round but this time have strung together victory margins of 20-plus points in each of their first two tournament games.

April Sykes scored 21 for seventh-seeded Rutgers (20-13) which stayed close for the first 15 minutes of the game before the Aggies began to take command. Erica Wheeler added 12 points for the Scarlet Knights, who were held to 36.5 percent shooting, while A&M shot 46.2 percent.

The Aggies move on to Dallas for their third-round game next weekend.
