COLLEGE STATION, Texas -

Kristi Bellock tied a career high with 18 points and No. 3 Texas A&M routed Wichita State 71-45 in the first round of the NCAA tournament on Saturday.

Playing in front of a hometown crowd, the Aggies used a big run at the end of the first half to erase a one-point deficit and take a 13-point lead into halftime. A 12-2 spurt early in the second half extended the lead to 52-29, and Texas A&M cruised to the victory.
    
Texas A&M (25-9), which won the national championship in 2011, is in the tournament for the eighth consecutive season. It was the first trip for Wichita State (24-10).
    
Michelle Price scored 12 points for Wichita State.
