Danuel House had 18 points and Texas A&M rallied from 12 points down to beat New Mexico 64-51 in the fifth-place game at the Puerto Rico Tip-Off.

Jalen Jones added 13 for the Aggies (4-1), who shot 62 percent from the field in the second half.

It was the first game for House, a transfer from Houston, who was just approved to play this season by the NCAA on Friday.

The Lobos (3-2) seemed to be in control early, but were undone by 16 turnovers. New Mexico's shooting also deteriorated in the second half and was just 34 percent for the game.

Deshawn Delaney led New Mexico with 13 points. Hugh Greenwood added 10.

The Aggies host New Orleans on Nov. 28. The Lobos host USC on Nov. 30.
