Freshman forward Javonte Brown took the tip-off for the Aggies in the first half.

The Texas A&M men’s basketball team won a surprise overtime thriller in their game against Abilene Christian. Over 5,200 fans came out to see the lead exchanged 13 times across two regulation halves and two overtime periods. The game’s highlight was no doubt the nearly buzzer beater three-pointer from sophomore guard Hassan Diarra. This was also the second game of head coach Buzz Williams’ suspension. The Aggies will return to Reed Arena this Sunday, Nov. 14 to take on the A&M-Corpus Christi Islanders at 2 p.m.
