Baylor beats Texas A&M, 72-68, in physical game
WACO, Texas (AP)—Curtis Jerrells and Tweety Carter scored 14 points apiece to lead Baylor past Texas A&M 72-68 in a physical game that ended with a brief skirmish Saturday night.
Trailing by five, the Aggies pulled within 70-68 on a 3-pointer by Donald Sloan, but Jerrells answered with a drive and a short jumper with 12.6 seconds remaining.
After Sloan missed another 3-point try and Texas A&M quickly fouled, Jerrells took an inbound pass and dribbled out the clock before the Aggies could foul him. Jerrells was shoved as the buzzer sounded, forcing officials and coaches to separate players and lead them off the court.
Josh Carter scored 20 lead to Texas A&M (17-8, 3-7 Big 12). Bryan Davis, Derrick Roland and Sloan had 13 apiece.
Kevin Rogers and Anthony Jones scored 12 each for Baylor (16-9, 4-7).
