LSU vs Texas A&M

Texas A&M rallies past LSU 83-73


  •  

COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) Jamal Jones scored 19 points as Texas A&M earned its first victory over LSU as a fellow Southeastern Conference member after jetting past the Tigers 83-73 on Wednesday night.

The Aggies (14-10, 5-6) dominated the Tigers in bench points (33-4) and points in the paint (36-26) in rallying from a 62-50 loss at Georgia on Saturday.

A&M, after making 1 of 19 3-pointers against the Bulldogs, rebounded in a big way by sinking 10 of 23 (43 percent) from the 3-point line, including 5 of 10 from Jones.

Shavon Coleman paced LSU with a game-high 21 points as the Tigers (15-8, 6-5) lost their fourth consecutive league road game, in coming off an 87-80 home win over Auburn.

A&M freshman guard Davonte Fitzgerald exited Wednesday's contest just prior to halftime with a left knee injury. He led all scorers at the time with 11 points, and had made 3-of-4 3-pointers. Fitzgerald entered the game averaging 8.4 points per game off the bench in SEC play. His knee will be further evaluated on Thursday, a team spokesman said.

The Tigers played their first game without sophomore guard Malik Morgan, who tore his right patella tendon on Saturday against Auburn and is out for the remainder of the season. Morgan, a defensive specialist, had averaged 15.5 minutes per game.

A handful of NBA scouts were on hand Wednesday to catch LSU junior forward Johnny O'Bryant III, who finished with 15 points (6 of 11 from the field) and six rebounds, along with four fouls.

While LSU still leads the all-time series 15-12, A&M defeated the Tigers for the first time as an SEC member, following two Aggies losses in 2013, their first go-round in their new league. The new SEC rivals meet again on Feb. 26 in Baton Rouge, La. On Saturday, the Tigers play at Arkansas while the Aggies visit Vanderbilt.
