No. 6 Baylor Vs. Texas A&M: Bears Escape College Station With 63-60 Win

The Baylor Bears had a bit of a struggle during the final minutes of Wednesday's contest against the Texas A&M Aggies, but they pulled out the 63-60 victory.

The No. 6 Baylor Bears avoided being on the wrong side of an upset on Wednesday night by picking up a 63-60 victory over the Texas A&M Aggies. However, it was fraught with sweat over the last several minutes of the game. The two teams played a back and forth second half. The Aggies held a 60-58 lead with 29 seconds left on the clock. David Loubeau's jumper took the credit for that, but the Bears still had plenty of time left to get things done.

A dozen second after the Aggies took the lead, Baylor's Pierre Jackson sank a three to regain the lead, 61-60. The Aggies were only able to get one more shot off, a three-pointer that Elston Turner missed. Jackson was fouled with one second left in the game and made both free throws. It was game over for the Aggies.

Perry Jones III scored 15 points and pulled down five rebounds. Pierre Jackson was solid off the bench with 14 points, 5 assists, 4 rebounds and 3 steals. Quincy Acy was the only Baylor starter to score in double digits, putting up 11 points.

The Aggies were led by David Loubeau's 16 points, but Ray Turner had the best all-around game with 13 points and 11 rebounds.

Baylor visits the Oklahoma St. Cowboys on Saturday before facing the Kansas Jayhawks next Wednesday.
