Texas A&M slips past Oklahoma 65-62
COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP)—Donald Sloan had 16 points including the go-ahead jumper with 32 seconds remaining and a pair of free throws seconds later to give Texas A&M a 65-62 win over Oklahoma on Tuesday night.
The win ended a two-game losing streak for the Aggies (13-5, 2-2 Big 12).
Texas A&M trailed by one before Sloan’s driving jumper in the lane made it 63-62. The Sooners (11-7, 2-2) had a chance to take the lead, but Willie Warren’s off-balance attempt fell short, and Bryan Davis grabbed the rebound.
He was immediately fouled but missed the free throws, giving Oklahoma another chance. Tommy Mason-Griffin missed a shot, and Sloan was fouled on the rebound. He made two free throws with 3 seconds remaining.
The Sooners got the ball one last time, but Sloan intercepted a pass from Tiny Gallon as time expired.
Mason-Griffin led Oklahoma with 21 points.
