NASHVILLE - The LSU Lady Tigers hoops team defense failed them down the stretch and Texas A&M was able to separate a close game late to take the 75-69 victory and send LSU home early from the SEC Tournament.
It was a back and forth battle all game long with the contest featuring 25 different lead changes.
The Aggies were able to wrestle control of the game with a closing 11-4 run as the Lady Tigers struggled to both score and defense late in the game.
