Both teams struggled in the regular season, but Aggies coach Billy Kennedy will be happy that his team was able to get a tournament win to build on going into next year. Oklahoma kept it close for most of the game, but Texas A&M held the lead for 25 minutes en route to a 62-53 victory.
Neither teams shot better than 40 percent from the floor, but the Aggies outrebounded the Sooners 36 to 26 and hit three more three-point shots than their opposition, which was the difference between the two teams on the night.
