COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) -- Acie Law scored 23 points to help No. 12 Texas A&M defeat Saint Louis 69-33 in the championship of the inaugural Shelby Metcalf Classic on Sunday.

Law hit six of his first eight shots as the Aggies (4-0) jumped out to an early lead. Joseph Jones added 11 points and had six rebounds for Texas A&M.

Texas A&M's defense held Saint Louis (3-1) to 21 percent shooting for the game.

Tommie Liddell led the Billikens with 12 points.

Jones gave A&M a 23-11 lead with 6:20 left in the first half on a twisting layup and a foul shot that came in the middle of an 18-2 run.

A&M held Saint Louis scoreless on 15 straight possessions until Liddell hit a fast break layup with 30 seconds left in the first half.
