Men: Buzzer-beating trey lifts Aggies past Longhorns
Published March 2, 2006
COLLEGE STATION, Texas - Acie Law made a 3-pointer at the buzzer to give Texas A&M a 46-43 win over No. 6 Texas on Wednesday, the Aggies' sixth straight win.
The Aggies got a chance for the upset when Texas' P.J. Tucker, apparently unaware of the time on the shot clock, dribbled around as it expired with 5.9 seconds left.
The Longhorns intentionally fouled Law and after a timeout, he got the inbounds pass and pulled up for a long 3 that swished as the buzzer sounded.
It was the second straight season the Aggies (19-7, 9-6 Big 12) beat the Longhorns (24-5, 12-3 Big 12) at home. They beat then-No. 9 Texas 74-63 last year.
