COLLEGE STATION, Texas- Despite 18 points, 8 rebounds and four blocks from Jessica Kuster, Rice saw its six-game winning streak snapped at No. 24 Texas A&M with an 80-57 loss.
Texas A&M (10-4) started the game on a 27-9 run, by hitting 11 of 12 shots. The Owls trailed 49-30 at halftime. Only No. 1 Connecticut scored more points than Rice's 30 in the first half at Texas A&M this year.
Rice (8-5) used a 12-4 run to close the score to 51-36 17:29 left in the second half, but never got any closer than 15 points the rest of the way. The Aggies outscored Rice by four in the second half, 31-27.
The Owls finished with 57 points, the fourth-highest for an Aggie opponent at Reed Arena this season. Only No. 1 Connecticut, No. 9 Penn State and Marquette put more on the scoreboard than Rice.
Kuster led the Owls with 18 points, and is averaging 17.3 points and 8.7 rebounds against Top 25 competition this year. She posted a season-high four blocks.
Megan Palmer returned to the starting lineup for the first time in three games, scoring 15 and grabbing four rebounds. She has scored in double figures in each of the last four games she has played.
Kelsey Bone led Texas A&M with 24 points and 14 rebounds. The Aggies did not make a 3-point field goal, the first time this season Rice has held its opponent without a long-distance make.
