COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- Texas A&M didn't enjoy its latest win.
"Everyone is disappointed because of this game," Turner said. "Even though we got the win, it wasn't good enough."
KeDorian Sullivan led the Braves (1-6) with 11 points and eight rebounds.
A&M, in its most off-kilter outing of the early season, missed all 17 of its 3-point attempts.
"The zone has given us problems this year," Loubeau said of A&M's terrible night of shooting. "We've got to find a half-court offense and go from there."
Alcorn State was only 3 of 11 from beyond the arc.
"We're obviously disappointed we didn't make a shot from the perimeter against their zone," Aggies coach Billy Kennedy said. "Bottom line is if you go 0 for 17 from the 3-point line against the zone, it's going to be difficult to look good offensively."
One place the Aggies looked good was on the run, outscoring Alcorn 20-2 on the fast break, and 42-26 in the paint in overwhelming the Braves with their size, if not shooting acumen.
"We didn't want to give them a good look at the basket," Braves coach Luther Riley said of A&M's awful long-range shooting. "We wanted to take some of their points away by contesting the kick-out pass. It was just a bad shooting night for them, and we were in zone for that reason."
Alcorn led 9-8 with 11:33 remaining in the first half before a layup by Jamal Branch gave the Aggies the lead for good. A&M shot only 40.3 percent (25 of 62), while Alcorn was even worse at 32.7 percent (18 of 55).
Texas A&M, which has won three straight, is still without its top player, guard Khris Middleton, who is expected back in less than two weeks after recovering from surgery on a torn meniscus in his right knee.
"(Shooting) has been a concern, especially with Khris out," Kennedy said.
Alcorn State, which lost its sixth consecutive game, outscored A&M 30-16 off the bench, one of the Braves' few highlights on the night and yet another lowlight for A&M.
"We're not getting much help from our bench right now," Kennedy said. "We've got to get more help, or we're just going to have to shorten our rotation."
Texas A&M's five blocks were a season high, and the seven assists by Aggies point guard Dash Harris were also a season high.
