    COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) -- Morenike Atunrase scored 19 points, including two big free throws with 18 seconds left, and Texas A&M (No. 20 ESPN/USA Today; No. 21 AP) beat No. 25 Nebraska 66-65 on Wednesday night.

    Atunrase's free throws gave the Aggies (14-4, 4-2 Big 12) a four-point lead that Nebraska immediately closed to 66-65 on a 3-pointer by Kiera Hardy with 14 seconds left.

    A&M's Takia Starks missed two free throws after being fouled when the Aggies inbounded the ball, but Hardy missed a jumper at the last second to spoil the Cornhuskers' final chance.

    A'Quonesia Franklin led the Aggies with 21 points and Danielle Gant added 11. La Toya Micheaux led the team in rebounding with 11.

    Hardy and Kelsey Griffin led Nebraska (16-4, 4-2) with 16 points apiece. Chelsea Aubry added 12 points, while Griffin led the team with 10 rebounds.

    Nebraska led 30-26 after the first half. The Cornhuskers pushed their lead to seven points at 16:28, but the Aggies went on a 9-4 run to tie the game at 11:10. The Aggies then pushed the lead to eight at 5:38 on a 3-pointer by Atunrase.

    The Aggies improved from 29 percent field goal shooting in the first half to 47 percent in the second. They shot 37 percent on the game to 34 percent for the Cornhuskers.
