HOUSTON -- Bernard King scored 26 as Texas A&M held off Louisiana State 79-77 in the final seconds Saturday in the Space City Classic.

LSU had a chance to tie it with three seconds left after the Aggies turned the ball over on an inbounds pass and King fouled Torris Bright in the lane.

But Bright missed the one-and-one, and LSU batted the ball out of bounds.

"Both teams were shooting the 3s, but we were getting a lot of good open shots," King said. "You like to play when it's like that."

LSU trailed by eight in the final minute before hitting two 3-pointers to move within 79-77.

OLE MISS 56, GEORGE MASON 49: Aaron Harper had 12 points, Derrick Allen added 11 and David Sanders chipped in 10 for the visiting Rebels, who never trailed.

S. CAROLINA 71, APPALACHIAN ST. 56: Chuck Eidson scored 16 and had two steals to become the host Gamecocks' all-time steals leader with 224, passing Barry Manning.


DePAUL 92, CENT. MICHIGAN 56: Delone Holland scored 20 and Sam Hoskin added 17 as the Blue Demons used a strong defense and hot early shooting. DePaul won its 15th straight home opener by taking a 14-2 lead, making five of its first six shots. PURDUE 86, LOUISVILLE 84: Kenny Lowe scored 18 and Darmetreis Kilgore added 14 for the Boilermakers at the Wooden Tradition at Indianapolis. The lead was swapped the majority of the game, and the teams combined to take 128 shots. The Cardinals' Luke Whitehead missed a baseline jumper as time expired.

SAINT LOUIS 56, ST. BONAVENTURE 54: Marque Perry scored 11 of his 15 in the second half and Chris Sloan made two free throws with 3.1 seconds left for the Billikens.

S. MISS 89, S. ALABAMA 78: Geoffrey Brown and Charles Gaines scored 19 each to lead the host Golden Eagles.

TCU 86, WASH. ST. 83: Corey Santee scored 23, including a late 3-pointer that put the host Horned Frogs ahead for good, in the comeback victory.

RICHMOND 64, CHARLOTTE 60 (OT): Mike Skrocki's three free throws with 23 seconds left in regulation tied it at 54, and he also hit two free throws with 13 seconds left in overtime to lock it up for the Spiders.


N.C. ST. 58, COPPIN ST. 37: Julius Hodge had 16 points and Marcus Melvin added 13 as the Wolfpack overcame poor shooting and Coppin State's deliberate pace.


MIAMI 91, SAVANNAH ST. 57: James Jones, with 22 points, led five Hurricanes in double figures. Jones scored host Miami's first six points of the second half and the Hurricanes outscored the Tigers 17-3 in the first four minutes of the second for a 57-28 lead.
