Kristi Bellock scored 18 points on 9-of-10 shooting to lead No. 16 Texas A&M to an 81-33 victory over Mississippi State Thursday night. Texas A&M (15-5, 5-1 Southeastern Conference) shot 60 percent (29 of 48), well above its season 46.6-percent average. Mississippi State (8-11, 0-6) couldn't muster much offense for coach Vic Schaefer, a former Texas A&M assistant, in his first game against his old squad. The Bulldogs were 12-of-45 shooting and bested the worst offensive performances in program history by a single point - Mississippi State scored 32 points against Manhattan in 1985 and Auburn in 1986. Texas A&M opened the game on an 11-4 run and led 39-19 at halftime. They immediately extended that lead to 54-19 to open the second half. Adrienne Pratcher added 15 points for the Aggies and Kelsey Bone chipped in 13 points. Martha Alwal led Mississippi State with 12 points and 10 rebounds.
