No. 17 Texas A&M Aggies trounce LSU 71-38 in SEC Tournament

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tonny Trocha-Morales scored 13 points as No. 17 Texas A&M trounced LSU and freshman star Ben Simmons 71-38 on Saturday to reach the Aggies' first conference tournament championship game since 1994. The Aggies (26-7) will play for the Southeastern Conference Tournament title on Sunday after sharing the regular-season crown with No. 16 Kentucky. They will face either the Wildcats or Georgia. Texas A&M hadn't reached a conference tourney championship since losing to Texas 22 years ago in the Southwest Conference. Now, after its eighth straight victory, it is one win away from adding its first tournament title since 1987. The Aggies announced a new five-year deal with coach Billy Kennedy before tipoff, and then they proved he deserved it by routing the last team to beat them back on Feb. 13.

"It's frustrating, but obviously it was for the best for the team for coach (Johnny Jones) to do that," Simmons said. "It made sense to come in in the second half, and I didn't have to worry about getting that third foul because I was going to stay in." The Tigers likely need to win this tournament to give Simmons a chance to play in the NCAA Tournament. Now LSU (19-13) has won three of four, and the Tigers will play No. 17 Texas A&M, a 72-66 winner over
