Sophomore forward Savion Flagg was 7-for-14 shooting field goals.

The Texas A&M men’s basketball team (11-14, 4-9 SEC) defeated Alabama (15-11, 6-7 SEC) 65-56 Tuesday evening at Reed Arena. The lead changed three times and the score tied five times throughout the game. The Aggies fell behind by double digits in the second half, but were able to hold off the Crimson Tide long enough to get ahead and secure a victory. 
The Aggies will play at Arkansas at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday.
