    AMES, Iowa (AP) -- Joseph Jones and Acie Law each scored 17 points and Kenneth White buried two key 3-pointers to lead Texas A&M past Iowa State 86-81 in overtime Saturday, snapping the Aggies' three-game losing streak.

    Texas A&M (12-4, 2-2 Big 12) outscored Iowa State 11-2 down the stretch, as White and Josh Carter hit 3-pointers on back-to-back possessions to give the Aggies an 82-79 lead with 54 seconds left.

    Curtis Stinson turned the ball over on Iowa State's next possession, and Texas A&M iced the game by hitting four free throws in the final 43 seconds.

    Iowa State (12-6, 2-3) led by as much as 10 late in the first half before the Aggies rallied.

    With 34.6 seconds left in regulation, Rahshon Clark missed the back end of a one-and-one, and White hit his first basket of the day -- a 23-footer with 17.7 seconds left -- to tie the game at 73 and send it into overtime.

    White's 3-pointers were the only shots he took all game.

    Texas A&M went 10-of-16 from the field to open the second half and tied the game at 54. The Aggies never led during second half.

    Iowa State outscored the Aggies 28-14 over the final 13:15 of the first half to turn a seven-point deficit into an eight-point halftime lead. The Cyclones jumped ahead 25-23 with a 13-4 run and extended their cushion to 40-32 by the break.

    Stinson scored 19 points in the first half, including 15 of Iowa State's last 22.

    The Aggies buried their first four 3-point attempts, led by a pair from Chris Walker, to take an early 19-12 lead.

    Stinson led Iowa State with 27 points, and Jiri Hubalek added 16. Antanas Kavaliauskas scored 15 for Texas A&M and Carter chipped in with 11.
