COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) — Freshman point guard T.J. Starks scored 17 points and Texas A&M toppled No. 24 Kentucky 85-74 on Saturday night in a sold-out and raucous Reed Arena.

John Calipari has lost three consecutive games for the first time since taking over the Kentucky program before the 2009-2010 season.

Kentucky (17-8, 6-6 Southeastern Conference) led 30-26 at halftime, but the Aggies (17-8, 6-6) made 11 of their first 16 shots in the second half — including all four of their 3-point attempts — to take a 14-point lead.

D.J. Hogg added 16 points for the Aggies. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander led Kentucky with 19 points.

Texas A&M Aggies dominated the Wildcats in fast-break points (18-10), and the Aggies’ high-flying Robert Williams had four of the team’s six blocks.
