LSU falls to No. 10 Texas A&M 71-57
COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) - Jalen Jones scored 20 points and freshman Tyler Davis tied a season-high with 18 to lead the No. 10 Texas A&M to a 71-57 victory over LSU on Tuesday night, extending their winning streak to nine games.
The win improves the Aggies (16-2) to 6-0 in Southeastern Conference play, which is their best start to league play since they won their first seven in 1993-94 when they were in the Southwest Conference.
The lead changed several times throughout the first half and the early part of the second half and it was tied at 44-44 with about 15 minutes left.
The Aggies took over, using a 16-3 run to make it 60-47 with about 9 minutes remaining. Alex Caruso scored four points in that span and he was under heavy pressure from Ben Simmons when he passed to Jones, who finished with a two-handed dunk to highlight the run.
Tim Quarterman had 12 points for LSU (11-7, 4-2).
