Fabyon Harris chipped in nine points, and Kourtney Roberson added seven points and 13 rebounds for Texas A&M, which struggled from the floor, shooting 26.9 percent and hitting just eight percent from behind the arc.

The Aggies hit their first 3-pointer - a Jamal Jones triple with 18 minutes left in the first half - and missed the next 20 attempts before Jones hit a 3-pointer with 25 seconds left.

The Aggies failed to get within five points, with the last time coming with 12:46 remaining in the game on a Harris jumper that cut Oklahoma's lead to 33-28.
