NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Jalen Jones made a go-ahead layup with 2:08 remaining and Alex Caruso followed with a steal and layup 13 seconds later to key a late 7-0 run that pushed No. 17 Texas A&M past Florida 72-66 on Friday in the Southeastern Conference Tournament.

Playing for the first time as the tournament's top seed, the Aggies (25-7) needed everything to break free of a Florida team that stayed with them throughout a tight game featuring 11 ties and eight lead changes.

Danuel House followed those two quick baskets with a 3-pointer with 1:02 left to provide some more room, and Admon Gilder's two free throws with 22.8 seconds left sealed the Aggies' seventh straight win.

House and Tyler Davis each scored 15 points for Texas A&M, which will face the Tennessee-LSU winner in Saturday's semifinal. Jones finished with 13 points.

Kasey Hill's 18 points led five players in double figures for eighth-seeded Florida (19-14).
