COLUMBIA, Mo. -- Jalen Jones had 20 points and six rebounds to lead No. 21 Texas A&M to an 84-69 victory over Missouri on Saturday.

Admon Gilder and Danuel House added 14 points each for the Aggies (22-7, 11-5 Southeastern Conference), who are on a four-game winning streak. House had 12 points in the first half, shooting 4 for 8 from 3-point range.

Tramaine Isabell had 17 points, five assists and three rebounds in his first start of the season, matching his season-high point total.

Ryan Rosburg had 15 points and five rebounds for Missouri (10-19, 3-13), which ended the game on an 11-0 run after trailing by as many as 36 points.

Kevin Puryear, who leads the Tigers in scoring at 11.6 points per game, finished with seven points on 1-for-8 shooting. Puryear had just one point entering the final 2 minutes.

Missouri matched the Aggies basket-for-basket for much of the first half, using a 7-0 run to take a three-point lead following a transition layup by Namon Wright. Wright reached double-digit scoring in seven of Missouri's last eight games, but finished with four points on 1-for-8 shooting.

Missouri coach Kim Anderson was assessed a technical foul with 7:51 remaining in the first half following a layup by the Aggies' Tyler Davis. Anderson wanted a travel call as Davis bobbled the outlet pass in transition, prompting boos from the home crowd. D.J. Hogg made two free throws and Texas A&M ended the first half on a 25-11 run.

Hogg finished with nine points, and Davis added eight points and seven rebounds.

The Aggies picked up where they left off to start the second half, opening on a 10-3 run. Texas A&M capitalized on nearly every Missouri mistake, scoring 17 points off the Tigers' 10 turnovers.

Jones had 10 second-half minutes and played a total of 23 minutes. He scored his final points on a layup with 16:25 remaining, and did not see action for the final 12:23.
