NASHVILLE, TN - KT Harrell scored 25 points and Auburn rallied from 10 points down at halftime to upset fifth-seeded Texas A&M 66-59 Thursday in the second round of the Southeastern Conference tournament.

The Tigers (14-19) now have won two straight in as many days after winning only four SEC games all season. Auburn also won consecutive tournament games for the first time since 2000, and they will play fourth-seeded LSU on Friday.

Cinmeon Bowers added 10 points for Auburn.

With nothing but the offseason ahead, the Tigers opened the second half with a 16-1 run hitting their first four 3-pointers. The Aggies didn't hit their first bucket of the half until Alex Robinson scored on a layup with 14:31 left.

Fifth-seeded Texas A&M (20-11) lost its third straight and four of the last five, likely dooming the Aggies' NCAA Tournament hopes.

Alex Caruso and Robinson had 11 points apiece for Texas A&M.
