Aggies Fall Short in Baton Rouge 68-49

Despite jumping out to an early 13-5 lead, the Texas Aggie basketball team didn't have the offensive firepower to overcome a longer, more athletic LSU team in the paint losing 68-49.

Texas A&M saw its win streak come to an end Wednesday night, falling to LSU 68-49 at the Maravich Assembly Center.

Jarell Martin scored 20 points on 7-of-9 shooting, Johnny O'Bryant III scored 15 and Andre Stringer added 11 points as LSU (17-10, 8-7 Southeastern Conference) won its seventh straight at home and improved to 13-2 in the Pete Maravich Assembly Center.

The Aggies (16-12, 7-8), who beat LSU in the teams' previous meeting in College Station, came into the game shooting a league-worst 40.7 percent in SEC games and fared even worse than that at LSU, shooting 30.8 percent (16 for 52).

Part of the Aggies' problem stemmed from the defensive play of 6-foot-8 LSU freshman Jordan Mickey , who blocked five shots.

Jordan Green led the Aggies with 12 points.
