3 things from Tennessee basketball's 75-62 win over Texas A&M

Texas A&M wins in OT against Tennessee 79-76 - Recap, Box score

Saturday's win follows Tennessee's 92-84 road victory at Vanderbilt on Tuesday night and should boost the Vols in the rankings.

Texas A&M: The 3-point shooting that kept Texas A&M relatively close in the first half deserted the Aggies as they attempted to rally.

Texas A&M was picked to finish third in the SEC and opened the season like a team on a mission, running up an 11-1 record in non-conference games and attaining the No. 5 rank in the nation.

The Aggies' last two losses before this game were decided by one point each - a 69-68 setback to LSU decided on an off-balance 3-pointer in the final second and a 74-73 decision at No. 21 Kentucky.

While the loss ends the 15-game win streak for Tennessee, the Lady Vols must now turn their attention to a trio of top-ranked opponents that would leave most programs in a losing skid.

Tennessee wasn't as effective in turning points into turnovers - 15 points from turnovers, compared to Texas A&M's 18.


It was Rick Barnes' 1,000th-career game as a head coach.

Frustrating for the Aggies was the fact that A&M shot better than Tennessee 44 to 41 percent, but the Aggies' miscues offset the Vols poor shooting. Jordan Bone led the way with 4 assists while James Daniel lll had 3.

Texas A&M entered the night ranked 13th out of 14 SEC teams in turnover margin, and the Aggies' inability to take care of the basketball enabled Tennessee to grab a 36-28 halftime lead. Williams chipped in 22 of her own while going 3-for-7 from 3-point range. Tennessee scored 22 points off those turnovers and 11 on second chances.

Tennessee also controlled the paint, out-rebounding the Aggies 38-29, posting 14 offensive boards.

Texas A&M has one of the longer front lines in the SEC, and the Aggies made things rough on UT sophomore Grant Williams.
