Texas A&M avoids upset, beats Army 61-55

Associated Press

COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) - Fabyon Harris scored 12 points, Ray Turner chipped in with 11 and Texas A&M mounted a late comeback to avoid its second consecutive upset in holding off Army 61-55 before 6,416 fans in Reed Arena on Saturday.

Army led 55-54 with 1:02 remaining after Turner made his first free throw but missed the second. Texas A&M teammate Elston Turner came up with the rebound, however, and Army's Dylan Cox fouled Harris on a 3-point attempt from the left side of the arc after the outlet.

Harris, with 43 seconds remaining, made all 3 of his free throws to lift the Aggies (9-3) to a 57-55 lead, one they wouldn't relinquish as Cox missed a lay-up and a 3-pointer on ensuing possessions.

Kyle Wilson paced Army (6-6) with a game-high 15 points.

The Aggies made only 15 of 27 free throws, but were solid from the 3-point line by making 8 of 20.
