Cold-shooting Aggies down Tigers

COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP)   Tonny Trocha-Morelos scored a game-high 14 points and Texas A&M defeated Missouri 60-49 on Saturday.

The Aggies (13-6, 2-5) won their second consecutive home game in league play following an 0-5 start to Southeast Conference action.

Both teams shot poorly from the field, as A&M converted 39.1 percent (25 of 64) of its shots and Missouri made 27.8 percent (15 of 54) of its attempts.

The Aggies led 29-20 at halftime and were aided in the second half by two rare swishes from the right baseline by the senior center Trocha-Morelos, along with his 15-foot jumper from the free-throw line that put the game out of reach at 58-46 with 1:38 remaining.

No one from the Tigers (13-6, 3-3) scored in double digits, as Jordan Geist, Jeremiah Tilmon and Jordan Barnett scored nine points each.

Both teams struggled from the 3-point line, with A&M making 3 of 17 (17.6 percent) and Missouri 4 of 18 (22.2 percent).
