Texas A&M coach Gary Blair wins 700th career game

LAS VEGAS, Nev. ---  Texas A&M women's basketball head coach Gary Blair won his 700th career game as No. 10 Texas A&M defeated No. 16 Cal 75-58 at South Point Arena in the South Point Thanksgiving Shootout.

Blair is the 16th Division I coach to reach the milestone, accomplishing the feat in his 31st year of coaching. Only six coaches have accomplished the feat in fewer seasons.

Blair, who is ninth among active coaches in career wins, is 700-282 in his career and 292-119 at Texas A&M.

The Aggies (5-0) led by just a point after the first quarter, but a 20-7 edge in the second quarter gave the Aggies a 38-24 lead going into the break. Texas A&M would lead Cal (4-1) by as many as 29 points in the second half as to cruise to victory.

Courtney Williams led the Aggies with 32 points, a career-high and the most for a Texas A&M since Kelsey Bone scored 33 on Dec. 20, 2012, which also happened in Las Vegas, Nev.

Courtney Walker had 18 points, moving into 7th on Texas A&M's career scoring list, passing Tyra White.

The Aggies return to action on Saturday, Nov. 28 at 2 p.m. CT/12 p.m. PT to take on No. 11 Ohio State in the final game of the South Point Shootout.
