WACO, Texas (AP) - Acie Law IV scored 18 points and sank two free throws with 2.6 seconds remaining, clinching Texas A&M's 64-60 win over Baylor on Saturday.
Josh Carter and Joseph Jones each added 14 points for Texas A&M (16-7, 6-6 Big 12). Carter's layup with 8.9 seconds left put the Aggies ahead 62-58, but Tommy Swanson's tip-in cut the Baylor deficit to two.
Law then sank the free throws, his first two of the game, after he was fouled by Aaron Bruce on the inbound pass.
Curtis Jerrells and Bruce led Baylor (2-10, 2-10) with 14 points each. Swanson added 12 points and had a career-high 14 rebounds.
Texas A&M's Antana Kavaliauskas added 10 points, going 5-for-5 from the field.
Baylor missed an opportunity when, trailing 58-56 with 21.9 seconds left, Swanson couldn't corral the rebound on Josh Carter's missed free throw. The ball went off Swanson's fingertips and fell out of bounds.
Texas A&M, which shot just 35 percent in the second half, led 28-17 late in the first half before Baylor stormed back. The Bears ended the half on a 17-3 run and took a 34-31 halftime lead.
