Tigers show up for one half at A&M

Missouri's leading scorer spent the first half on Quin Snyder's bench, apparently being taught a lesson by the staff. The Tigers took a 35-34 lead into halftime. In the second half, A&M shot a sizzing 75% from 3-point range to send the Tigers home with their worst basketball loss ever at College Station.

It was a tale of two halves on Saturday night in College Station. When Texas A&M shot poorly from the outside, 2-7 from 3-point land, the Tigers were in the game. When A&M lit up in the second half, shooint 9-12 from beyond the arc, the Tigers had no answers.

In the end, Missouri lost the game 91-63.

Missouri led 35-34 at halftime, but allowed the Aggies to score 57 points in the second stanza.

The win is Texas A&M's 15th of the season, which ensures the Aggies their best finish since going 19-11 in the 1993-1994 season.

Missouri drops to 10-12, and 2-7 in the conference.

Freshman Jason Horton led Missouri with 17 points, including five 3-pointers and Jason Conley added 12.

The Tigers have now lost four straight and seven of the last eight and remain winless on the road.
