Texas A&M put the game away by going on a 10-3 run midway through the second half to take a 63-36 advantage following Radford’s three-point play with 10:51 to go.

The Aggies dominated from the opening tip, jumping out to a 15-2 lead in less than six minutes before taking a 38-22 halftime advantage.

Radford scored nine points and Coleman added eight in the first 20 minutes for Texas A&M, which shot 14 of 29 (48.3 percent) from the field, including 4 of 12 (33.3 percent) from beyond the arc.

Georgia was led by Abdur-Rahim’ 10 first half points, with Hill adding seven.
