COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) — Tyler Davis scored 17 points and D.J. Hogg added 12 as Texas A&M overwhelmed American for a 76-53 victory on Monday night.

For the second consecutive game against an undersized opponent, the Aggies dominated inside, outscoring the Eagles 44-22 in the paint.

Hogg added a game-high nine rebounds, and A&M freshman forward Robert Williams added 10 points and two blocks in only his second game. Williams now has seven blocks on the season.

Delante Jones led American with 18 points and Sa'eed Nelson followed with 12.

The Aggies led 20-15 midway through the first half when they broke it open. Davis and Hogg combined to make 9 of 13 field goals in the first half in staking A&M to a 41-20 lead at the break.

The Aggies had dominated Northwestern State 42-8 in points in the paint in their Friday opener, a 72-44 victory over the Demons.
