COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) — Quenton Jackson tied a career-high with 31 points, Henry Coleman III added 15 points, and the duo combined to make 17-of-17 shots as Texas A&M beat Georgia 91-77 on Tuesday night.

Jackson made all 11 of his field-goal attempts, including three 3-pointers, and he also had six of Texas A&M’s 12 steals to outduel Kario Oquendo, who kept Georgia in it by making six 3-pointers and scoring a career-high 33 points on 12-of-22 shooting.

Jackson scored 17 first-half points and Texas A&M led 48-37. The Aggies took control during a 14-0 run, and led for the final nine minutes of the half. Oquendo scored 18 of Georgia’s 37 first-half points.

Texas A&M led by at least seven points throughout the second half, and its lead was in double figures for the final 4 minutes, 30 seconds.

Both teams shot over 56% from the field but Georgia was undone by 20 turnovers, leading to 25 Texas A&M points. The Aggies also had a 46-24 scoring advantage in the paint.

Manny Obaseki, Hassan Diarra and Tyrece Radford each scored 10 points for Texas A&M (17-11, 6-9 SEC).

Oquendo’s previous high for Georgia (6-22, 1-14) was 28 against Mississippi State on Jan. 12, and he also scored 26 on Feb. 16 at LSU.

Braelen Bridges added 10 points for the Bulldogs, who lost their eighth straight.

Both teams play again on Saturday. Texas A&M is at Mississippi, and Georgia hosts Florida.
