    Texas-Oklahoma St. Preview


    Texas snapped the nation's longest home winning streak with its first victory at historic Allen Fieldhouse over the weekend.

    Oklahoma State's Gallagher-Iba Arena is also a tough venue for visitors, but the Longhorns have already proven they can win there.

    Seventh-ranked Texas looks to build on a signature victory and hand the Cowboys their first home loss since falling to the Longhorns last February on Wednesday night.

    Texas (16-3, 4-0 Big 12) ended then-No. 2 Kansas' 69-game home winning streak with a 74-63 comeback victory Saturday. The Longhorns trailed by 15 early, but outscored the Jayhawks 36-13 while turning a 12-point halftime deficit into a 59-48 lead on a 3-pointer by Cory Joseph with just over 5 minutes to go.

    J'Covan Brown had a season-best 23 points and keyed a second-half run with two 3-pointers in just over a minute to give Texas its first lead, 45-44, with 10:40 remaining. Jordan Hamilton added 17 points for the Longhorns, who are off to their best start in conference play since opening 5-0 in 2005-06.

    "It was a great win for our program," coach Rick Barnes said. "I can't tell you how much respect I have for Bill (Self). He's one of the best. He's the model of consistency and one of the best. To come up here and get a win -- we've had so many great games with him where we've obviously come out on the other end."

    The Longhorns, winners of four straight, moved up three spots in the rankings with the program's first victory in 10 tries in Lawrence.

    Oklahoma State (14-5, 2-3) may not boast a home winning streak as long as Kansas', but its on-campus arena has given the program a significant home-court advantage.

    The Cowboys have won 29 of their last 30 games at Gallagher-Iba Arena, with the lone blemish a 72-60 loss to Texas on Feb. 1. They've won 13 straight in Stillwater since then.

    The Longhorns also beat Oklahoma State in Austin by 10 points on Feb. 24, its eighth victory in nine games in the series.

    Hamilton, third in the Big 12 in scoring at 19.5 points, totaled 40 points on 15 of 24 shooting for Texas in the two meetings as a freshman last season.

    Oklahoma State opened league play with a 14-point home win over then-No. 17 Kansas State on Jan. 8, but has lost three of four since. The Cowboys' lone win in the last two weeks came over lowly Iowa State in overtime last Wednesday.

    Oklahoma State is coming off a 76-57 loss at Baylor on Saturday. Freshman Markel Brown, averaging 5.2 points, had a season-best 16 points to lead the Cowboys, who shot 39.2 percent and missed 15 of 19 from 3-point range.

    Poor long-range shooting has been a problem for Oklahoma State, which has connected on 27.1 percent from beyond the arc in six games this month, one of the worst marks by a Division I team.

    Trying to regain its shooting touch against Texas could be tough.

    The Longhorns held a Kansas team that came in averaging 83.2 points and an NCAA-best 52.4 percent shooting to 35.9 percent. Texas has limited its last four opponents to an average of 55.3 points on 38.8 percent shooting and 22.0 percent from 3-point range.
