SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico – Peyton Allen had 14 points, Jalen Jones added 12 and Texas A&M rallied in the second half to slip past College of Charleston 59-50 in the consolation round of the Puerto Rico Tip-Off Friday.
The Aggies (2-1) trailed by five with more than eight minutes remaining before outscoring the Cougars 27-13 to end the game. Jordan Green had nine of his 11 points in the final four minutes.
Joe Chealey and Anthony Stitt had 10 points apiece to lead Charleston (1-3).
Stitt helped carry the Cougars offense for the second straight game, but had seven turnovers. It matched the seven turnovers in their opening loss to Connecticut.
Texas A&M plays the winner of New Mexico and George Mason in the consolation final on Sunday. Charleston plays the loser of that game.
