Texas A & M freshman DeAndre Jordan has been good on offense all season. Last night, he finally got it together on defense.
Jordan had 14 points and eight rebounds, leading the 14th-ranked Aggies (10-1) to a 79-39 victory over Detroit. It was their third straight victory.
"I thought DeAndre Jordan played his best game since he's been here," A & M coach Mark Turgeon said.
Jordan, who leads the nation in field goal percentage, missed only the last of his eight shots. He is 46-of-58 (79.3 percent) over his first 11 games.
