COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) - Admon Gilder and Tonny Trocha-Morelos each scored 14 points and Texas A&M won its first Southeastern Conference contest as the Aggies defeated LSU 92-62 on Wednesday night.
A&M (9-6, 1-3) jumped on LSU (9-6, 1-3) from the start, leading 13-3 after a little more than five minutes. Robert Williams and Chris Collins each added 12 points for A&M, and LSU's Antonio Blakeney scored a game-high 17 points, the only Tiger to reach double digits.
A&M held a lopsided 11-0 edge in blocks, with Williams leading the way with four and Trocha-Morelos and D.J. Hogg chipping in three each. The Aggies also held a 46-36 advantage on points in the paint.
The Aggies knew it would be their night when Trocha-Morelos smoothly tossed a behind-the-back pass to Tavario Miller for a wide-open dunk, giving the Aggies a 21-5 lead with 11:31 left in the first half.
A&M has won its last two games against the Tigers by a combined 63 points, following a 71-38 Aggies victory in the SEC tournament last March in Nashville, Tenn.
