COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) - Sydney Carter and Adaora Elonu each scored 16 points and No. 14 Texas A&M beat Missouri 78-52 on Wednesday night to give coach Gary Blair his 200th win with the Aggies.

It is Texas A&M's eighth straight win over Missouri (10-6, 0-5 Big 12) and leaves the Tigers winless in Big 12 play.

The Aggies were up by nine points early in the second half before going on an 8-0 run to extend the lead to 58-41 with about 10 minutes remaining. Missouri's Morgan Eye hit a 3-pointer before Texas A&M (12-4, 3-2) used a 14-2 spurt, keyed by 3s from Tyra White and Adrienne Pratcher, to push its advantage to 72-46 with about three minutes left.

Missouri was led by Christine Flores, who had 13 points.
