COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) - Cisti Greenwalt matched a career high with 26 points and grabbed 16 rebounds, leading No. 13 Texas Tech to a 67-54 victory over Texas A&M on Sunday.

Chesley Dabbs scored 17 points and point guard Erin Grant added 15 assists for the Red Raiders (16-3, 7-1 Big 12), who have won 10 of their last 11 games and moved into a tie with Kansas State for the league lead.

Morenike Atunrase led A&M (11-7, 2-6) with 13 points and Charlette Castile added 10. Tamea Scales, the Aggies' leading scorer, had nine points on 2-of-13 shooting and pulled down 16 rebounds.

Tech never trailed in this one and controlled the game except for a brief run by the Aggies midway through the second half.

Atunrase made two free throws to bring the Aggies within 43-41 with 11:12 left in the game. But Greenwalt and Dabbs responded, scoring all of Tech's points during a 9-2 run that essentially put the game out of reach for the punchless Aggies.

A&M lost its fourth straight overall and 17th in a row to the Lady Raiders in this completely lopsided rivalry. Tech leads the series 50-9 and hasn't lost to A&M since the finale of the now-defunct Southwest Conference tournament in March 1996.

The Aggies have nearly completed a tough stretch of games against Top-15 opponents. They lost at Baylor earlier this week and will travel to No. 15 Texas on Wednesday
