Texas

Another big night for Carr: No. 10 Texas swept Oklahoma State for the season.

Marcus Carr scored 21 points as Texas No. 10 earned an 89-75 regular season victory over Oklahoma State Tuesday night at the Moody Center.

Timmy Allen scored 17 points and Brock Cunningham scored 15 points for Texas (17-3, 6-2 Big 12), which improved to 10-2 under interim head coach Rodney Terry. He took over the team in mid-December when Chris Byrd was suspended and fired three weeks later. This surge put the Longhorns in the thick of the Big 12 title chase.

Kalib Boone and John-Michael Wright each scored 18 points to lead Oklahoma State (11-9, 3-5).

Bols:Acting Texas head coach Rodney Terry should be judged by his team’s victories.

Texas attacked the basket early behind Dylan Disu, Christian Bishop and Allen and threatened to pull away as the Longhorns took a 33–25 lead in the first half. A deep 3-pointer from Bryce Thompson put the Cowboys out 33–30 before Texas ended the half 7–2, topped by Jabari Rice’s 3-pointer from the left flank.

Tyrese Hunter of Texas is looking for a place to strike, while Oklahoma state guard John-Michael Wright defends.  With the win, the Longhorns improved to 17-3 overall and 6-2 in the Big 12.

Texas quickly extended their lead to 13 points after the break when Carr made an interception to set up Allen’s three-point play and then stepped back.

Disu scored 12 goals and was on the defensive in the second half, battling for blocks and rebounding lost balls to earn possession, while mid-range jump shots from Carr and Allen kept the Cowboys from escaping to close the gap.
