Bone develops into star for No. 13 Texas A&M

COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) - Texas A&M's Kelsey Bone has developed into a star for the 13th-ranked Aggies this season, ranking third in the Southeastern Conference in scoring (17.4) and second in rebounds (9.8).

But Bone's basketball career almost ended before it got going. Her first coach told the 5-foot-10 elementary school girl that she would never be a basketball player and that she should try something else.

Bone says: "I was the biggest player on the team and I was terrible."

Bone's mother Kim Williams wouldn't let her daughter quit and found her a new team.

Pretty soon she caught on to the sport, and by high school she was 1 of the nation's top players.

Now a junior, Bone leads the Aggies and hopes to help them rebound after losing 3 of their last four games when they host LSU Sunday.
