Recap: Texas A&M vs. Tennessee

College Station, TX (Sports Network) - Trae Golden scored a career-best 32 points as the Tennessee Volunteers outlasted the Texas A&M Aggies in four overtimes, 93-85, in an SEC tilt at Reed Arena.

Jordan McRae netted 23 points while Jarnell Stokes registered a double-double with 20 points and 16 rebounds for Tennessee (16-10, 8-6 SEC), which played the first four overtime game in program history. Skylar McBee added 12 points off the bench as the Volunteers won their fifth straight game.

Elston Turner did all he could to keep Texas A&M (16-11, 6-8) in the contest with 38 points. J'Mychal Reese and Fabyon Harris contributed 15 and 13 points, respectively.

Texas A&M scored the first eight points of the contest and never trailed in the opening 20 minutes as the Aggies shot 53.8 percent from the floor in the first period to take a 31-28 lead into the break.

After a back and forth second half, Stokes drew a foul with Tennessee trailing 62-61 with five seconds remaining. The Volunteers' big man made just one of two from the free-throw line to tie the score and force overtime.

Two Harris free throws gave the Aggies a 73-69 advantage with 25 seconds remaining in the first overtime period. After a Golden layup and a made free- throw by Reese, McRae drilled a 3-pointer with nine seconds left to force a second overtime.

Turner scored the first four points of the second overtime but once again Golden responded, this time with a triple to bring Tennessee back to within one. Golden came up big again with a late jumper to tie the score at 75-75 and Turner's last second shot was blocked by Josh Richardson, setting up a third overtime.

The third extra period was lost scoring as just four points were produced by each team. The Aggies' Jarod Jahns corralled an offensive rebound and converted a putback with 12 seconds left to force yet another overtime session.

Tennessee finally outlasted Texas A&M in the fourth overtime period as Golden, McRae and McBee combined for 14 points while the Aggies managed just six points.

The Volunteers outrebounded the Aggies, 53-42.
