COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- Freshman Tyler Davis matched his season high with 18 points on 8-of-9 shooting and No. 20 Texas A&M beat Cal Poly 82-63 on Tuesday night.

The Aggies (10-2) led by as many as 22 points, with the Mustangs never getting closer than nine points in the second half.

Senior Joel Awich, who entered the game leading Cal Poly (6-7) in scoring at 11.7 points per game, was helped off the court with 14 minutes remaining in the game, unable to put weight on his left ankle. He was put in a walking boot on the bench and did not return.

Danuel House, A&M's leading scorer this season, finished with 12 points on 5-of-14 shooting from the field. He was just 2 of 10 from the free throw line.

Cal Poly entered the game committing a Big West-leading 10.4 turnovers per game, but the Mustangs committed 14 on Tuesday, 11 in the first half, which the Aggies converted to 21 points. The Mustangs had their lowest first-half scoring since Dec. 14 as they trailed 44-29 after 20 minutes.

Senior guard Reese Morgan led Cal Poly with 16 points and fellow senior Brian Bennett had 13, six within the final 3 minutes of the first half.

TIP-INS

Cal Poly: In all six of the Mustangs' victories, Cal Poly has shot for a higher field goal percentage than their opponent. In all seven losses the Mustangs have trailed in that statistic.

Texas A&M: Freshman Kobie Eubanks joined the active roster for Texas A&M on Tuesday, though he did not see game action. A late addition to the 2015 signing class, Eubanks is 6-foot-5 guard and considered to be a consensus top-100 recruit.
