Guards Danielle Fenderson, Jessica Shanklin and Monet Sykes added eight points each. Sykes was also the leading rebounder, pulling down seven boards.

The loss moved the Lady Cougars' record to 1-6, while UT improved to 6-2 on the season.

Texas was led by Alisha Sare who had 19 points. Edwina Brown nearly missed a triple double as she had 17 points, 15 rebounds, nine assists and five steals as her all around play gave the Lady Longhorns the victory.
