COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) - J'Covan Brown hit the go-ahead layup with less than a minute remaining and later added a pair of free throws to lift Texas to a 70-68 win over Texas A&M on Monday night.

The win is the Longhorns' fifth straight over A&M in the last regular-season Big 12 meeting between these schools with the Aggies leaving for the Southeastern Conference.

Brown's free throws with 17 seconds remaining made it 70-67. Elston Turner was fouled before he could get a shot off on the other end. He made one free throw and missed the second one, and Julien Lewis grabbed the rebound to cap the Texas win.

Brown led the Longhorns (15-9, 5-6) with 20 points and Sheldon McClellan added 15.

Turner had 20 points for Texas A&M (12-11, 3-8), which has dropped three straight.
