Texas Dominates Texas A&M, Wins 69-49

New, 5 comments

I think we know who the cream of the Big 12 crop is...

In the past nine days the Texas Longhorns have defeated all three of the other ranked conference schools, winning by double digits against the Kansas Jayhawks, Missouri Tigers and Texas A&M Aggies.

Tonight was, well, total domination by the Longhorns.  Like they did against Mizzou, and like they came back against KU, the Horns got out to a double digit lead early, going into half up 25.

Jordan Hamilton led UT in scoring with 20. Tristan Thompson was the only other Longhorn to score in double digits, registering 10 points. The Horns toned it down in the second half, cruising to the easy 69-49 victory.

B.J. Holmes led the Aggies with 19 points. Leading scorer Khris Middleton was held scoreless on 0-7 shooting.

In pursuit of conference perfection, Texas doesn't play another ranked team for the rest of the regular season. Their toughest games might be in Boulder on February 26 or in Waco in the last game of the season.
