AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Kelsey Lang scored 18 points and No. 6 Texas continued its torrid start with a 72-59 win over No. 4 Tennessee, snapping a five-game losing streak in the rivalry.
The victory was another important step in Texas coach Karen Aston's mission to return the Longhorns to the nation's elite programs. Once a women's basketball powerhouse, Texas has struggled to be a factor nationally or in the Big 12 over the last decade.
But Texas started this season ranked in the Top 10 and backed it up with an impressive victory at then No. 6-Stanford. Handily beating Tennessee will further expectations of a big season in Aston's third year in Austin.
Texas (5-0) had four players score in double figures and shot 62 percent in the second half.
Bashaara Graves scored 15 points for Tennessee (4-2), which has lost two in a row.
