After back-to-back road contests the Texas A&M men's basketball team returns to the friendly…
Texas A&M 69, Arkansas 51
Fabyon Harris scored 17 points to lead the Aggies (11-3, 1-0 SEC), who took control with a 15-0 run that began late in the first half and extended into the second. It was the first SEC game for A&M and its first conference game against the Razorbacks since 1991, when both schools belonged to the now-defunct Southwest Conference.
B.J. Young had 13 points for Arkansas (9-5, 0-1), which had a five-game winning streak snapped. The Razorbacks dropped to 0-4 on the road, extending their SEC road misery that stretches back to last season, when they were 1-7 away from home in the conference.
Elston Turner made a 3-pointer that put the Aggies ahead to stay, 24-23, and started the 15-0 run. Turner added a 3-pointer as A&M opened the second half with seven consecutive points to extend its lead to 36-24.
Arkansas got no closer than 11 points the rest of the way.
Turner finished with 15 points and eight rebounds. Ray Turner had nine points and eight rebounds as the Aggies won the rebounding battle 51-27.
