(Newser) – It was a can't-miss night for the Texas A&M Aggies, as the No. 23 team shot 56% from the field en route to an 80-63 victory over their old foes the Longhorns. Texas had more steals and fewer turnovers, but the Aggies have Josh Carter, who produced on offense and tied up the Longhorn defense, reports the Battallion.

Carter raked in 19 points and 10 rebounds, and as usual nailed more than half (4-7) of his three-point attempts. Longhorns star DJ Augustin managed 14 points on 6-18 shooting, but lamented that the Aggies "came out hot. We didn't play very good defense and that was the key to the game."
