Kentucky outlasts A&M for 72-68 overtime win

COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) - Freshman Nerlens Noel had a season-high 19 points and Julius Mays also scored 19, including five in overtime, to lead Kentucky to a 72-68 win over Texas A&M on Saturday.

The Wildcats (15-6, 6-2 Southeastern Conference) led by one point before Mays made two free throws with 15 seconds left. Texas A&M (13-8, 3-5) had a chance to tie it after that, but Elston Turner's 3-pointer bounced off the rim with 5 seconds left. Mays added another free throw with a second left to secure the win.

The Wildcats opened overtime with a 7-1 run thanks to a jump shot by Noel and five free throws to take a 69-63 lead.

Turner's 3-pointer with about 2 minutes left in overtime got A&M within 69-66.

Kourtney Roberson's layup made it 69-68 with 16 seconds left before the free throws by Mays.
