HOUSTON--- The Cougars hung with No. 12/16 Texas A&M right to the very end Sunday afternoon, in what was arguably their best all-around performance of the young season, as Houston dropped a tough one by the final of 63-51 at Hofheinz Pavilion.

Sophomore forward Marche' Amerson dropped in 12 points on 5-of-13 shooting from the field to lead the scoring attack for the Cougars, while junior guard Demetria Foreman recorded 10 of her own to round out the double-figure scorers for Houston.

Senior center Yasmeen Thompson pulled down a team-best 10 rebounds and recorded eight points in the loss.

Guard Courtney Walker collected a game-high 19 points, while dishing out a game-high tying six assists for the Aggies in the win. Forward Achiri Ade was the only other Texas A&M player to score in double-figures, as she put up 18 points and collected a game-high equaling 11 rebounds.

Houston (0-3) came out of the gates ready to play, as it claimed an early 9-5 lead with just less than four minutes gone by in the contest, after Yasmeen Thompson converted on a layup attempt.

However, Texas A&M (3-0) soon responded, unleashing a 16-2 scoring run of its own, as it held the Cougars without a field goal conversion for just over 10 minutes of game time to take a 21-11 advantage with just over six minutes to play in the half.

But the Cougars played some stifling defense themselves, holding the Aggies to just 37 percent (13-of-35) shooting from the field in the first half, as they grinded their way back into the game.

Sophomore guard Jessieka Palmer brought the crowd to its feet for the second straight game, as she drilled a three-pointer from the right wing at the halftime buzzer for a second consecutive contest, cutting the Texas A&M lead down to just 27-23 at the intermission.

The Cougars' proved the first half was no fluke, as once again they railed from a double-digit deficit to trim the Aggies' lead down to 45-42 with 9:44 left to play, thanks to an 11-3 scoring run, capped off by an Alecia Smith layup conversion.

It wasn't pretty for Houston, as the offense managed to shoot just 30 percent (19-of-63) for the game, but the effort was there, as the Cougars won the second-chance point battle 18-9.

Houston will get back after it this Wednesday, as the Cougars will take on North Texas at 7:00 p.m. CT inside Hofheinz Pavilion.
