Texas A&M Vs. Texas A&M Corpus Christi Final Score: Aggies Use Big First Half To Defeat Islanders, 56-43

Texas A&M used a 16-point first half advantage to defeat Texas A&M-Corpus Christi

The Texas A&M Aggies held of the Texas A&M-Corpus Christi by using a big first half where they had a halftime lead of 30-16 before going on to win Saturday's game, 56-43. This was Texas A&M's first game in over a week when they defeated the St. John's Red Storm in New York City. The first half Texas A&M ran out to a 30-16 lead over Texas A&M-Corpus Christi and then played an even second half to cruise to victory.

Defense was the key to the Texas A&M victory as they held Texas A&M-Corpus Christi to 15-of-54 shooting from the field and an even worse 3-of-17 from three-point range. Texas A&M shot only slightly better as they were 19-of-43 from the field and their free throw shooting was not much better at 13-for-22.

One could say defense was to why Texas A&M won, but it seems that they were able to not shoot as bad as Texas A&M-Corpus Christi in this game. Texas A&M had three players in double figures and were led by Elston Turner who scored 14 points.
