Posted: Updated:

DULUTH, Ga. (AP) - Kelsey Bone had 18 points and 15 rebounds, with most of her production coming in the second half, and Texas A&M beat Kentucky 75-67 on Sunday night to win the Southeastern Conference tournament championship in its first year in the league.

The Aggies, the No. 4 seed, were the surprise of the tournament by beating the top two seeds in the tournament. No. 19 Texas A&M (24-9) beat top-seeded Tennessee in the semifinals before beating No. 2 seed Kentucky (27-5) in the final.

Kristi Bellock had 15 points and Courtney Walker had 14 for the Aggies.

Bone, selected the tournament MVP, was called for her second foul and went to the bench for the final 8:54 of the first half. She logged only eight minutes with four points in the half.
