    HOUSTON -- Josh Carter scored 19 points and Bryan Davis added 16, including two key baskets down the stretch, and Texas A&M beat LSU 72-61 on Saturday.

    It was the sixth straight win for the Aggies (10-1) and the first loss of the season for the Tigers.

    The game was the second half of a doubleheader at the Toyota Center and was the first away from home for LSU (8-1). No. 19 Michigan State beat fifth-ranked Texas 67-63 in the first game.

    The Aggies fought off a late surge from the Tigers, who got within two points with about 3 minutes to play. Davis scored two straight baskets after that to stretch the lead to 63-57.
