Aggies stumble against Mississippi State

COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) - Abdul Ado scored 19 points and Mississippi State stunned Texas A&M 93-81 on Tuesday night.

The Aggies, ranked 21st last week, dropped out of the rankings this week following consecutive road losses at Missouri and Arkansas. MSU overwhelmed A&M in points off turnovers (19-5) and bench points (23-6).

The Bulldogs (20-8, 8-7 Southeastern Conference) improved to 2-7 in SEC road games, while the Aggies (17-11, 6-9) fell to 5-3 at home against league competition.

Bulldog forward Aric Holman was questionable for Tuesday's game after hurting his knee on Saturday in a victory over Mississippi, but played 19 minutes and contributed 13 points and five rebounds. Quinndary Weatherspoon added 17 points as five Bulldogs scored in double figures

A&M center Tyler Davis led all scorers with 25 points and grabbed 11 rebounds. TJ Starks added 19 points.

BIG PICTURE

Mississippi State: The Bulldogs are likely still on the outside looking in for the NCAA Tournament, but not if this keeps up. MSU won its second straight and likely needs to close out the regular season with three more victories to make a strong case for the postseason.

Texas A&M: The Aggies were still considered relatively safe for an NCAA Tournament berth, but this one hurt, considering they entered the game having won 12 of their 14 home games.

UP NEXT

Mississippi State: The Bulldogs play host to South Carolina on Saturday, their first of consecutive home games.

Texas A&M: The Aggies play at Vanderbilt on Saturday, their third road game in four contests.
