BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - DaShawn Harden had career highs of five 3-pointers and 28 points and Danielle Ballard added 20 points to lead LSU to an 80-63 win over No. 12 Texas A&M on Sunday.

Harden, a senior who came off the bench the previous eight games, hit all five of her shots from long range and had 22 points to help their Tigers (16-12, 11-6 SEC) to a 47-35 lead at the half. Harden, who started on Senior Day, hit her third 3 and had 16 points as LSU took a 24-10 lead at 11:24 on the way to its highest scoring half of the season.

Courtney Williams had 19 for the Aggies (22-8, 10-6), who played without point guard Jordan Jones, who suffered a torn ACL and meniscus in her right knee Thursday against Missouri. Without her 6.6 assists a game, 11th in the nation, A&M had just 10 assists and 24 turnovers.

The two teams tied for fourth in the final league standings, but the Tigers have a win over Mississippi State, and thus clinch the 4 seed in the SEC tournament.
