Oh, you heartbreaker

As if last Wednesday's two-point loss to Oklahoma State was not enough, another team from the OK State delivered a frustrating blow to the Aggies on Saturday, when No. 22 OU hit a three-pointer with six seconds left to beat A&M 45-44.

OU's victory broke a two-game conference skid for the Sooners but marked the 13th straight time Oklahoma (10-4, 1-2) has outscored Texas A&M. With Saturday's win, the Sooners improved their streak over the Aggies to 24 wins in the schools' last 25 meetings.

The Aggies' (11-3, 1-2) first home loss of the season came in a game where A&M's Acie Law scored 14 points. OU's Terrell Everett notched 15 points and Taj Gray put up 13 points for the Sooners.

Head coach Billy Gillispie and the Aggies need look no further than their own offensive production to consider what went wrong against the Sooners. The Aggies finished a mediocre 37% (17-of-46) from the field, including 6-of-19 shots from 3-point range.

Gillispie said of the loss: "Tough loss. We were really bad on offense. We have to credit their defense. Both teams played hard enough to win. Not a great deal of offense on either side. Again you have to credit the defense. That last play, Joseph Jones made a smart play. We just were not able to get it back to Acie Law. We had plenty of time, we just were not able to convert. That was a tough one." The Aggies continue conference play against Oklahoma State on Wednesday at 7:00 p.m. in Manhattan, Kan versus Kansas State..
