COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) - Guard Retin Obasohan scored 12 points and three other Alabama players scored in double figures as the Crimson Tide defeated Texas A&M 61-60 on Saturday in Reed Arena, in the programs' regular-season finale.

The Aggies, trailing 61-60 with 10.7 second remaining, turned to shooting guard Peyton Allen following a time out, but the freshman missed a 3-point attempt from the right side of the key with three seconds remaining.

Alabama (18-13, 8-10 SEC), despite losing three of its four previous games, continued its mastery of A&M this season. The teams opened SEC play with a 65-44 Alabama victory on Jan. 6 in Tuscaloosa, Ala.

The Aggies (20-10, 11-7) played without leading scorer Danuel House (14.8 points per game), who injured his foot late in the Aggies' 66-62 loss at Florida on Tuesday. Jordan Green and Jalen Jones led the Aggies with 13 points each.

A big difference was second-chance points, with Alabama holding a 16-2 advantage.
