Courtney Williams scored 21 points to help No. 7 Texas A&M rally from a 15-point second-half deficit to defeat No. 8 Duke 63-59 on Sunday.

Williams, who missed the first four games because of a team rule violation, had 12 points in the second half for the Aggies (7-0). Williams' jumper from the right side of the free-throw line lifted A&M to a 61-57 lead over Duke (5-1) with 1:15 remaining.

Duke freshman Rebecca Greenwell notched a game-high 23 points, the only Blue Devil to score in double figures in every game this season.

The Aggies used a relentless fast break to overcome the Blue Devils, outscoring them 18-0 in that category.

The Blue Devils played without All-American senior Elizabeth Williams, who watched from the sideline with an injured left foot.

A&M leads the all-time series 4-1.
