The Aggies trailed by two points early in the second half before using a big run to take a 46-36 lead. South Carolina couldn’t get anything going on offense for the first 10 minutes after halftime en route to just over 29-percent shooting in the second half.

The victory broke a two-game skid for Texas A&M (17-12, 7-9), and was the ninth loss in 10 games for South Carolina (13-16, 3-13).

Michael Carrera’s 16 points led the Gamecocks and Bruce Ellington added 10 points.
