Aggies Fall to Bengals

The Texas Aggie basketball team dropped the season home finale to the LSU Tigers 68-57. The loss drops the men to 7-10 in SEC play and assures the team of a losing conference record. The Aggies finish the regular season on Saturday at Arkansas.

Charles Carmouche had 20 points and five assists to lead LSU to a 68-57 win over Texas A&M on Wednesday night.

The Aggies never led in the second half, but cut the lead to three points with about 6 1/2 minutes left. That's when the Tigers used a 12-2 spurt to make it 66-53 with less than 2 minutes to go. Carmouche scored the last six points of that run for LSU (18-10, 9-8 Southeastern Conference) to secure the victory.

Senior Ray Turner led Texas A&M (17-13, 7-10) in his last home game with 16 points and tied his season high with 13 rebounds. Fellow senior Elston Turner, who entered the game averaging a team-leading 18 points, added 11 points for the Aggies.

The Aggies will close out the regular season portion of their schedule on Saturday when they travel to Fayetteville to battle the Arkansas razorbacks at 1:00 PM.
