Aggies End Early Home Stand At 4-0 With Blowout Of Houston Baptist

The Aggies men's basketball team continues its hot start to the season

On Wednesday afternoon, playing their fourth game in eight days, the Texas A&M men's basketball team finished off a four-game homestand with a 73-39 blowout win over Houston Baptist at Reed Arena.

Tyrece Radford and Quentin Jackson led the Aggies in points with 13 each, and Aaron Cash contributed off the bench with 12 points on 5-of-8 shooting while sinking both free throw attempts and grabbing 10 rebounds on the day.

Houston Baptist played the A&M close early in the first half until the Aggies pulled away towards the end of the first frame for a 35-21 cushion at halftime.

The second half is where the Aggies shined on both offense and defense, as A&M started the half on a 22-0 run including five straight dunks, with three coming from Cash.

The Aggies held the Huskies to just 18 second-half points while putting up 38 of their own. Houston Baptist shot just 25 percent from the field in the second half and turned the ball over nine times. A&M shot 57 percent and had just five turnovers in the final frame.

Guard Darius Lee led the Huskies in points with 13 on the day and chipped in eight rebounds, two assists, and three steals. No other Huskie saw double-digit points.
