The Missouri Tigers (23-9) have cruised to their first SEC Tournament win in program history, knocking off the Texas A&M Aggies (18-15) with a final score of 62-50.
Both schools were in the Big 12 last season but only one would advance to tomorrow night’s matchup against Ole Miss.
Unfortunately for the Aggies, they never had a chance against the Tigers. Missouri opened strong, going on a 7-0 run to lead them early on 12-7.
The Tigers led 28-19 at the half.
By the time the game ended, there were four Tigers that scored in double figures. Alex Oriakhi led the way with 13 points. Laurence Bowers, Tony Criswell, and Jabari Brown all had 10 points.
With 20.1 seconds remaining, Corey Haith picked up a technical foul after fighting over a loose ball. Regardless of the technical free throw shots, nothing would be enough as the Aggies went down in defeat.
The Aggies only had one player score in double digits as Fabyon Harris scored 15 points. Ray Turner was next in scoring with 8 points but he fouled out of the game.
