In News by Blake Lovell

Tremont Waters hit a deep 3-pointer with only a second remaining to give LSU a 69-68 win at No. 11 Texas A&M.

The Tigers trailed 68-66 after Texas A&M center Tyler Davis missed two free throws with 11 seconds left, leading to LSU having an opportunity to tie or win.

And then Waters did this:

The freshman finished with 21 points, five rebounds, and four assists.

Skylar Mays and Aaron Epps each added 11 for the Tigers, while Davis finished with 19 points and 12 rebounds for the Aggies.

The victory gave LSU head coach Will Wade his first SEC victory after the Tigers fell 74-71 in their conference opener to Kentucky.

Texas A&M, who played without starters Robert Williams, Admon Gilder, and Duane Wilson, fell to 0-3 and will visit Kentucky and Tennessee next.
