COLUMBIA, S.C. -- Kelsey Bone scored 13 points, including the game-winning basket with 8.7 seconds left, in her return to South Carolina as No. 14 Texas A&M outlasted the 15th-ranked Gamecocks 50-48 on Sunday.
Bone was the Southeastern Conference's newcomer of the year in 2010 when she was a Gamecocks freshman before transferring. She was bottled up most of the second half by South Carolina's defense, but grabbed Adrienne Pratcher's missed 3-pointer and went up strong for the decisive basket.
Ieasia Walker's 3-point try was off the mark as South Carolina's six-game win streak ended.
Bone also collected 15 boards for her 11th double-double of the season and her fourth of the SEC season.
Pratcher and Courtney Walker each had 10 points for the Aggies (19-5, 9-1), who were held to their second fewest points this season.
Ieasia Walker led South Carolina (20-4, 8-3) with 16 points.
