COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) _ Danuel House scored 20 points and Jalen Jones added 16 to lead Texas A&M past Missouri 83-61 on Saturday.

The Aggies (16-6, 7-3) remained in second place in the Southeastern Conference after winning their seventh game in eight tries. The team lost 69-59 Wednesday at Mississippi.

Texas A&M shot 33 of 56 (58.9 percent) against Missouri and led by seven at halftime before gradually extending its advantage through the second half. A 3-pointer by House with 13:46 remaining in the first half put the Aggies up for good.

Wes Clark scored 15 points for Missouri (7-16, 1-9), which has lost nine consecutive games for the first time since the 1966-67 season, the last under coach Bob Vanatta before Norm Stewart started patrolling the Tigers’ bench.

House started 4 of 4 from 3-point range Saturday, scoring 14 points before the break to lead Texas A&M to a 38-31 halftime lead.
