    COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- Sydney Carter scored 14 points and Tanisha Smith added 13 to lead No. 15 Texas A&M to a 58-44 win over Texas (No. 14 ESPN/USA Today, No. 12 AP) on Saturday.

    The victory was the third straight for Texas A&M (19-6, 7-5 Big 12) and snapped a six-game winning streak for the Longhorns (19-7, 8-4).

    The Aggies were up by three before outscoring Texas 10-1 to push the lead to 53-41 with about 1 minute remaining. Texas A&M led 49-41 before scoring four quick points helped by a steal by Danielle Adams to put the game out of reach.

    Brittainey Raven had 17 points before fouling out with 42 seconds left to lead Texas.

    There was a long break in action with about four minutes to play while officials decided there was an error in the foul count for Texas A&M. The Longhorns shot and made two free throws when the Aggies had just six fouls. The points were taken away, leaving the score at 47-40, and the Aggies team fouls were reduced from seven to six after the discussion.

    The win gives the Aggies a season sweep of the Longhorns after a 91-70 win in Austin and is Texas A&M's seventh win in a row against Texas.

    Raven was the only Longhorn that scored in double figures, but Ashley Gayle had 10 rebounds and four blocks.

    Texas A&M trailed by five before going on a 12-2 run, powered by five points from Carter, to take a 38-33 lead with about 10 minutes remaining. The Aggies got four steals during that run, thanks to their effective use of a full-court press.

    Texas went on a 10-2 run to open the second half and erase a three-point deficit, taking a 31-26 lead with under 14 minutes remaining. Texas A&M struggled to find an offensive rhythm in that span, at one point getting two straight shot clock violations followed by a missed layup.

    Tyra White added 11 points for A&M, and Adams had six points, four steals and three blocks.

    The Longhorns scored the first eight points of the game and took advantage of Texas A&M's poor early shooting to build a 15-4 lead by the 12-minute mark. The Aggies finally got going after that, breaking off a 16-4 run capped by a block and layup on the other end by Adams to take their first lead -- 20-19 -- about two minutes before halftime.

    Texas A&M was up 24-21 at the break.
