Longhorns Top Mean Green

Texas used a vicious full court press to pull away from North Texas early in the first half, pushing their record to 8-0. The pressure kept the Mean Green off balance and the Longhorns jumped out to a 17-3 lead and never looked back. North Texas pulled within 10 points in the 2nd half, but never really threatened to make it a game.


DJ Augustin scored a career high 29 points, while dishing out 10 assists. AJ Abrams got back on track as he hit three 3s and notched 23 points. Damion James put up another double-double as he dropped 12 points and pulled down 10 boards. Texas looked to be in Final Four form as their full court press baffled the Mean Green and forced them into 8 turnovers in the first 10 minutes of the game. While N. Texas freshman, Josh White, tried to steal the show by scoring 28 points, the Green were just over matched by a Texas team clicking on all cylinders.

Up next for the Horns are the Rice Owls, this Saturday, in Houston.
