Texas A&M 68, Auburn 66

Auburn trailed by as many as 14 in the second half and erased a 9-point deficit in the final five minutes, but Texas A&M made a game-winning basket with less than two seconds remaining to prevail, 68-66, on Saturday.

"I'm proud of my kids and the way they battled," Auburn head coach Bruce Pearl said.

After struggling offensively in the first half, Auburn caught fire in the second half. Led by junior Jamal Johnson, the Tigers connected on 10 of 20 shots from deep and scored 44 points in the final 20 minutes. They shot 17 of 31 (54.8 percent) from the floor in that span and only turned it over five times.
