Texas A&M stages comeback, tops Missouri 62-50

COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) - Texas A&M overcame a seven-point halftime deficit to defeat Missouri 62-50 on Wednesday night.

The Aggies were led by Jalen Jones and Danuel House with 16 points each, while Wes Clark paced the Tigers with a game-high 18.

The Aggies (12-5, 3-2 SEC) held a wide rebounding advantage over the Tigers (7-11, 1-4) at 37-24, and shot 15 of 20 (75 percent) from the free-throw line. A&M entered the contest making 64 percent from the line.

Jones and House, two 6-foot-7 transfers who lead A&M in scoring, each tallied only four points in the first half. But the duo came alive in the second half, in combining for 24 points in helping A&M overcome a 31-24 deficit at the break.

The Aggies have won three consecutive SEC games following an 0-2 start in conference action. The Tigers have dropped four consecutive league contests after defeating LSU in overtime in their SEC opener.
