COLLEGE STATION, Tx. - 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). A&M, after making 1-of-19 3-pointers on Saturday against the Georgia 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 (15-8, 6-5) with a game-high 21 points.

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.
