Jones scores 26 to lead No. 15 Texas A&M over Florida 71-68
COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) Jalen Jones scored 26 points and Danuel House added 22 to help No. 15 Texas A&M outlast Florida 71-68 on Tuesday night for their seventh straight win.
Florida (10-6, 2-2 Southeastern Conference) never led after halftime but tied it twice and never let the Aggies pull away.
Dorian Finney-Smith made a 3-pointer to cut the lead to 67-66 with 26 seconds left. Anthony Collins made two free throws and Florida got within one point again on a basket by Chris Chiozza with 11 seconds left. The Gators were forced to foul again and Collins made two more free throws to extend the lead to three.
John Egbunu fouled as the Gators brought the ball down the court after that giving A&M (14-2, 4-0) the ball back. But Chiozza's steal gave Florida a chance to tie it at the buzzer, but his shot bounced off the rim.
