Dominque Kelly’s layup ended the run, A & M would keep no less than a seven point lead the rest of the half. In the second half, down 39-28 at the break, NU saw their deficit grow to 15 with just over 11 minutes to play with the score 55-40.
The key to the game was All-America candidate Kelsey Griffin got into foul trouble. She had three at half and picked up her fourth early in the 2nd. Griffin finished with just 15 points and seven rebounds in 26 minutes.
