A&M stuns NU at buzzer

February 25, 2009


— Josh Carter’s buzzer-beating three-pointer gave Texas A&M; a come-from-behind victory over Nebraska.

The Aggies (20-8, 6-7 Big 12) fell behind by 18 early in the second half. But Nebraska (16-10, 6-7) scored just seven points in the final 14 minutes and made only two field goals in the last 16:52.

The Aggies scored 10 of the game’s final 11 points.

It all came down to the last five seconds after Nebraska turned the ball over under the Aggies’ basket.

A Nebraska foul gave Texas A&M; the ball out of bounds with 2.6 seconds left. Carter received the inbounds pass and swished a 25-footer from the top of the key as time ran out. Carter led Texas A&M; with 11 points, and Bryan Davis had 10 for the Aggies.

Ade Dagunduro led Nebraska with 16 points.

Nebraska’s Cookie Miller missed a pair of free throws with 19.5 seconds left, and the teams each turned the ball over twice before Texas A&M; got a final possession.

Trailing 48-30 after Nebraska’s Brandon Richardson hit a pair of free throws with 14:21 left, the Aggies outscored Nebraska 15-2 over the next seven minutes.
