Nov 21, 2009 - 3:05 AM COLLEGE STATION, Texas(AP) -- Guard Donald Sloan scored a game-high 22 points as Texas A&M pulled away from Samford in the second half to win 68-49 Friday night.

Guard Derrick Roland followed Sloan with 14 points.

The Aggies (3-0), who led by only a point at halftime 36-35, busted the game open midway through the second half on the strength of 3-pointers by B.J. Holmes, Sloan and Nathan Walkup in a span of 2 minutes 33 seconds. The last one lifted A&M to a 56-44 lead.

Sloan, a senior, finished 7 of 11 from the field, including 5 of 6 from 3-point range. The Aggies shot 50 percent from the field in both halves (12 of 24 and 11 of 22).

Andy King led Samford (0-4) with 17 points.

The teams hadn't played since 1977, a 106-91 A&M victory in Birmingham, Ala.
