STARKVILLE, Miss. -- Martha Alwal had 16 points and 10 rebounds Sunday, and No. 17 Mississippi State scored the last six points of overtime to beat No. 14 Texas A&M 63-61 for its first-ever win over the Aggies.

Courtney Walker missed another jump shot for Texas A&M (18-6, 6-4) and Carter secured the rebound near midcourt. Carter made 1 of 2 free throws with 2.2 seconds left and Texas A&M was unable to get off a decent shot in the final seconds.

Morgan William added 15 points for the Bulldogs.
