AUBURN, Ala.- Texas A&M’s Chennedy Carter drove the length of the floor and made a game-winning runner with 4.6 seconds to play as the No. 24 Aggies extended their win streak to four in a 69-67 win over Auburn in a women’s basketball game Thursday at Auburn Arena.

Auburn (15-4, 3-3 SEC) rallied from an 11-point deficit with just under four minutes to play, tying the game with 17 seconds left with a Janiah McKay layup. With her team out of timeouts, Carter drove the ball the length of the floor to make her third career game-winning shot and finish with 28 points.

Texas A&M (15-4, 4-2 SEC) trailed 30-22 at halftime, but outscored Auburn 25-14 in the third quarter to take the lead into the final frame.

Carter led the Aggies with 28 points, her fourth 20+ point game in the last five outings. Kayla Wells added 19, Ciera Johnson reached double figures for the third straight game with 11 points and N’dea Jones notched her sixth double double of the season with 11 points and 15 rebounds.

With four straight wins, the Aggies match their longest win streak in SEC play since Feb. 2-12, 2017. Texas A&M has won all 12 matchups in the all-time series against Auburn.

Texas A&M returns home on Sunday, January 27 to host No. 15 Kentucky at 4 p.m.
