Ags Go Into Finals Week with a Win

The Texas Aggie basketball team hosted a salty Stephen F. Austin squad on Wednesday night and walked away with a low-scoring 62-54 win. The previously undefeated Lumberjacks closed the A&M lead to four points with under four minutes remaining, but two field goals and four consecutive free throws by freshman J'Mychal Reese held SFA at bay and clinched the victory.

Freshman J-Mychal Reese scored eight of his 15 points in the final 3 minutes as Texas A&M defeated Stephen F. Austin 62-54 on Wednesday night.

Reese matched his career high and kept the Aggies (6-1) unbeaten in 14 games all-time against the Lumberjacks. Reese made a couple of floaters from the lane and made four free throws down the stretch. Ray Turner also scored 15 points for Texas A&M.

Antonio Bostic and Taylor Smith led the Lumberjacks with 14 points apiece. Stephen F. Austin (5-1) is off to its best start since 1981.

Texas A&M led throughout the second half, but the Lumberjacks pulled within 52-48 with 3:45 remaining on a 16-footer by Thomas Walkup. Reese responded with an 8-foot runner on a fast break, then Ray Turner scored inside after an SFA turnover.

Elston Turner scored 10 points despite missing most of the first half with an ankle injury.

The Aggies will take the next te days off for final exams before returning to action a week from Saturday when they travel to Oklahoma City to face former Big 12 rival Oklahoma.
