COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- Tyler Davis tallied game highs with 16 points and 10 rebounds and fellow big man Tonny Trocha-Morelos added 11 points as Texas A&M overpowered Northwestern State for a 72-44 victory on Friday night to open the season.We knew we had the size advantage, so we just played to our strengths in this game, Davis said. We just tried to execute and run our offense, and see what we can get.The Aggies dominated inside, outscoring the Demons 42-8 in the paint.Thats where we want the ball, A&M coach Billy Kennedy said of A&Ms guards following his game plan.The games outcome was never in doubt, as A&M quickly built on a 12-point halftime lead, and had more than doubled up the Demons at 57-28 about halfway through the second half. A&M shot 46 percent (28 of 61) from the field, while holding NSU to 28 percent (12 of 43).They have size and strength, Demons coach Mike McConathy said of the Aggies. In the second half, they were just too much.The Demons were led by Zeek Woodleys 10 points, and Ishmael Lane added eight points. The Aggies led 33-21 at the break, thanks largely to shutting down the Demons 18-0 in the paint over the first 20 minutes.The Aggies replaced four senior starters from last years Sweet 16 team, but didnt miss a beat in the opener.People talk about the seniors who left, but we know that were capable of doing the same thing, (maybe) better, Trocha-Morelos said. We just have to show people were here to play basketball.BIG PICTURENorthwestern State: The Demons figure even with a tough early schedule -facing SEC and Big 12 foes for starters -- their stiff competition helps prepare them for Southland Conference play. And that theres plenty to learn from even in a 28-point loss.Texas A&M: The Aggies did exactly what coach Billy Kennedy promised in the offseason, mostly running the offense through their talented big men, often resisting the urge to just get out and run against an overmatched opponent.STAT OF THE NIGHTThe Aggies didnt even allow the Demons a point in the paint in the first half, and wound up with a 42-8 advantage. The Demons could do nothing with bullish center Davis, a member of the SEC coaches preseason first team.TURNING POINTThe Aggies led only 25-19 with 2:50 left in the first half when sharpshooter D.J. Hogg coolly drained a 3-pointer, deflating the Demons hopes of keeping the game tight at the break.CROWD PLEASERA crowd pleaser occurred with about 12 minutes remaining in the game, when A&M guard Admon Gilder tossed an alley oop to dynamic freshman forward Robert Williams, who snagged the pass a foot above the rim and slammed it home for a 55-28 A&M lead.I wish I could jump like him, Kennedy said.ROLE PLAYERWilliams came off the bench in his first college game and made 3-of-5 from the field for six points, He also snagged seven rebounds, tying for second with Tavario Miller behind Tyler Daviss game-high 10. His five blocks were four more than anyone else in the game.UP NEXTNorthwestern State will try and get its first victory of the season on Sunday afternoon at Oklahoma.Texas A&M will try and stay unbeaten against American on Monday night in Reed Arena.

Radwanska, making her debut in the Seoul tournament, hit eight aces in a match that lasted 1 hour, 4 minutes at Olympic Park tennis stadium. "It was definitely a very good match -- I was playing really good tennis," Radwanska said. South Africans 205 for 4 (Amla 81*, Coleman 2-26) drew against Victoria XI 258 (Gotch 53, Shamsi 4-72)Scorecard Chinaman bowler Tabraiz Shamsi put himself in contention for a Test debut with a four-wicket haul in the pink-ball warm-up match at the MCG. Although expensive, Shamsi proved difficult to pick and profited more than any of the other South African bowlers to set up an intriguing selection question for the final Test.The day-night game could see South Africa make some changes to their attack especially considering Vernon Philander was rested from the warm-up fixture as a precaution. Philander hurt his shoulder during an on-field collision with Australian captain Steve Smith in the Hobart Test. Should Philanders niggle not clear, they might have to look for a third-prong in the pace pack to accompany Kagiso Rabada and Kyle Abbott, who both delivered strong opening spells.Rabadas four-over burst brought three wickets, including Rob Quineys. The left-hander scored nine, exactly the same number of runs he made against South Africa in the only Test he has played, in 2012. Abbott was economical and found some nip, but more eyes were on Morne Morkel, the only quick to deliver more than one spell.Concerns over match fitness had kept Morkel out of the first two Tests and he sought to allay those with six-overs initially and three more later on. He sent down some testing short balls with no reward. Reserve bowler Dwaine Pretorius delivered six impressive overs - he pitched the ball up and managed to nip it around a touch - but it seems unlikely he will be promoted into the Test XI.The real debbate will be over Shamsi and left-arm spinner Keshav Maharaj, who hasnt done much wrong in the two matches he has played.dddddddddddd Both were expensive in this game, but Shamsi made more of an impact. He bowled Sam Harper and Blake Thompson and his variations proved tough for the Victoria batsmen to read as they folded up for 258. Seb Gotch (53), Matthew Short (52) and Evan Gulbis (53) scored half-centuries.South Africa opted to bat under lights but before they could take full effect, their struggling opener Stephen Cook had been dismissed. Not for the first time on this tour, Cook was found wanting with his footwork and faced 18 balls before he was trapped lbw on the backfoot for 11. His opening partner Dean Elgar found the going much easier and retired on 40 to give the middle-order time at the crease.Runs were secondary to South Africas intention to spend time in the middle and Hashim Amla made the most of it. He batted from the eighth over to the end of the innings and scored 81, after being dropped on 17 at first slip.Amla became more assured as the innings went on and seemed to want to get his eye in, having only contributing 48 runs on the tour so far. He had Temba Bavuma (33*) for company after JP Duminy (17) and Faf du Plessis (12) were both dismissed cheaply. Duminy was caught at slip while du Plessis fell to a half-hearted pull shot. Bavuma batted through the twilight period with characteristic caution. Quinton de Kock opted not to play the game at all.
