BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) -- Anthony Hickey scored 10 points and grabbed 8 steals, as LSU head coach Johnny Jones picked up his first Southeastern Conference win by beating Texas A&M, 58-54, Wednesday night. The Tigers (10-6, 1-4) attempted 19 more shots than the Aggies (12-6, 2-3) but led for less than 10 minutes. The Aggies jumped out to a 19-5 lead and held the advantage from the game's opening field goal until the 14:51 mark of the second half, when LSU's Malik Morgan hit his only 3-point shot of the contest. The lead went back-and-forth until the 2:48 mark, when LSU guard Charles Carmouche stole the ball and raced the length of the court for a fast-break layup. The Tigers would not trail again. Three Tigers scored in double figures including Hickey. Johnny O'Bryant III scored 14 points and added 10 rebounds, while Shavon Coleman led LSU with 17 points. LSU was 5-of-23 from 3-point range and just 5 of 12 from the free throw line. LSU was also outrebounded, 38-32. Fabyon Harris scored 19 points to pace Texas A&M and 9 different Aggies grabbed rebounds. Texas A&M committed 24 turnovers to LSU's 11, but the Tigers only managed 16 points off turnovers. Five LSU players registered multiple steals, forcing three Texas A&M players to commit four or more turnovers.
