    Final Stats

    COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) - Acie Law had 25 points and nine assists and Joseph Jones added 23 points and 10 rebounds as Texas A&M beat Houston 93-80 Wednesday night.

    A&M is off to a 10-0 start under new coach Billy Gillispie, the Aggies' best start since the 1959-60 team also won its first 10.

    The Aggies, who also got 19 points from Antoine Wright and 15 from Dominique Kirk, jumped to a 52-40 halftime lead on 59 percent shooting. They shot 50 percent for the game, led by Jones (8-of-10) and Law (6-of-11).

    But Houston (8-5) kept things fairly close thanks to Lanny Smith, who scored 22 of his 26 points in the first half. Smith hit 4-of-9 3-pointers as the Cougars shot 38 percent from behind the arc. Ramon Dyer and Dwight Jones II added 14 apiece for Houston.

    But the Cougars hit only 57 percent from the free throw line.

    A&M outrebounded Houston 47-29, led by Jones and Chris Walker's nine rebounds.
