Ags drop tough game to OSU

Joseph Jones and Acie Law combined for 62 points; but it wasn't enough to give Texas A&M the win in front of 13,058 fans at Oklahoma State's Gallagher-Iba Arena on Wednesday night.

The Cowboys (11-5, 1-1 Big 12) were never able to pull away from Texas A&M and only led the Aggies by a 40-36 score at the half. Texas A&M, in fact, had an eight-point lead with 12:11 remaining in the game.

Law led Texas A&M (11-2, 1-1 Big 12) with a career-high 35 points and seven steals. Jones also carried the Ags with his 27 points and seven rebounds.

Despite the monster numbers notched by the Aggies' two stars, A&M couldn't hold off OSU's Terrel Harris, who finished the game with 21 points. With 2:24 remaining, Harris sealed the deal with a three-pointer, giving the Cowboys the lead for good.

In analyzing the outcome, head coach Billy Gillispie pointed to the Aggies missed opportunities at the free point line: "We missed too many free throws and made too many mistakes." A&M shot 74 percent for the game.
