Aggies rally past Gamecocks

Associated PressJanuary 15, 2014 

— Texas A&M overcame a double-digit first half deficit to defeat South Carolina 75-67 on Wednesday night.

Jamal Jones scored 22 points for the Aggies, who trailed 14-3 six minutes into the contest before getting their act together before their largest home crowd of the season.

Guard Brenton Williams scored 14 points for the Gamecocks (7-9, 0-3), who shot 42.9 percent (9 of 21) from the field in the second half – after making 14 of 28 in the first half – en route to their third consecutive setback to start SEC play.

The Aggies (12-4, 3-0) under third-year coach Billy Kennedy are 3-0 in league play for the first time since 2010-11 under then-coach Mark Turgeon, now at Maryland, and as members of the Big 12 at the time.
