COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) - Freshman Anriel Howard set an NCAA Tournament record with 27 rebounds, Courtney Walker scored 29 points and Texas A&M overcame the suspension of starter Courtney Williams to beat Missouri State 74-65 in the first round Saturday.

Before the game the fourth-seeded Aggies suspended Walker and Shlonte Allen indefinitely for a violation of team rules. They are eligible to practice with the team while suspended.

For the first half, the 13th-seeded Lady Bears hung tough with Texas A&M, but then Walker and the Aggies (22-9) took over.

Howard shattered the NCAA record for rebounds of 23 set by Cheryl Taylor in 1985 for Tennessee Tech against Georgia.

Tyonna Snow scored 22 ponts to lead Missouri State (24-10).
