Texas A&M dominates early in 74-62 victory over LSU

From the early going, this game had the makings of a lopsided win in favor of the Aggies. Despite a resurgence in the second half by LSU, the Aggies got the job done on the road with a 74-62 win.

Texas A&M’s efficiency from the floor was the key to this win, as they shot 47% from the field and 50% from 3-point range. They took 11 less shots than LSU but found more quality possessions resulting in either buckets or fouls.

The Aggies dominated from the line hitting 26 of 32 free throws as opposed to the Tigers’ 13 attempts. LSU committed eight more fouls in the game and hit 20% less of their shots.

Wade Taylor led all scorers with 23 points for Texas A&M on 6 of 11 from the field while hitting five threes. He also led the Aggies in assists with four. They also found success with their other two guards in Tyrece Radford and Dexter Dennis who both scored in double figures.

LSU’s Adam Miller led the team in scoring with 18 points on 6 of 15 shooting. Tyrell Ward put up 15 points on 5 of 9 from the field as the only other player for LSU in double figures.

This was a win that A&M needed to have, given the struggles shown from LSU recently. The Tigers have not won a game since Dec. 28, when they took a three-point victory at home against Arkansas. The Aggies are now winners of five of their last six, with their last loss coming on the road against the same Arkansas Razorbacks.

The Aggies will look to redeem themselves against Arkansas at home on Wednesday.
