Texas A&M hit a remarkable 52.9 percent of its field goals on Tuesday night to take down Texas A&M-CC at Reed Arena.
With a strong shooting performance from all over the floor, the Texas A&M Aggies picked up their eighth win of the season with a 66-54 victory over Texas A&M-CC on Tuesday evening.
The Aggies led just 10-9 after the game's first eight minutes, but came alive late in the first half to extend the lead to 14 points at the intermission. Despite a number of opportunities to cut the lead down to single digits in the waning minutes of the second half, the Islanders still couldn't quite find their range from the outside with their slim chances on the line.
Texas A&M was paced in the scoring column by junior guard Fabyon Harris, who chipped in 17 points on 3-of-4 shooting from the perimeter. Harris entered the night as head coach Billy Kennedy's third scoring option, and epitomized his role as the team's sixth man despite playing just 26 minutes on the floor. Now up to an 8-2 record on the young season, Kennedy's team will next gear up for a weekend game with Southern University at Reed Arena on Saturday afternoon.
