COLLEGE STATION- Khaalia Hillsman scored her 1,000th career point, helping No. 19 Texas A&M defeat Little Rock 66-49 in a women's basketball game at Reed Arena.
The Aggies (3-1) started the second half with a 16-3 run, breaking what was a 30-30 tie at halftime, and never letting Little Rock (1-2) closer than 10 points for the remainder of the game.
For the fourth time in as many games this season, four Aggies scored in double figures, led by Danni Williams, who had 18 points, including 3-of-3 shooting from beyond the arc. Chennedy Carter added 17, Anriel Howard had 13 and Hillsman had 10. Howard had her fourth straight double-double in the game, with a game-high 12 rebounds.
Hillsman reached the 1,000 point milestone with the first basket of the second half, becoming the 29th Texas A&M player with 1,000 points, and the first since Courtney Walker and Courtney Williams reached that milestone in 2014-15. She now has 1,005 career points, which ranks 28th all-time at Texas A&M.
The Aggies return to action on Sunday, November 26 at 2 p.m. at Texas Tech. The Aggies return to Reed Arena for back-to-back home games against Prairie View and Rice on November 28 and 29.
