Justin Mason drives against UTATexas knocked off UT – Arlington tonight in Austin by 32 points in a game that was still close at halftime. It was an eight point game at the half, but the Horns offense kicked in and they were able to pull away and win by a final score of Texas 84, UTA 52.

[tag]Kevin Durant[/tag] had another great night as he chipped in his usual 21 points and 15 rebounds. The kid is just amazingly solid and consistent, he’s averaging a double-double so far in his freshman season. If he continue this kind of production through Big 12 conference play he’ll be getting freshman POY honors and some All-American mentions as well. [tag]AJ Abrams[/tag] knocked down three more 3-pointers and [tag]DJ Augustin[/tag] continued his great work at the point. Those three players can lead this team a long way with just a little help on defense and the boards from the interior guys.

Great to see big [tag]Dexter Pittman[/tag]’s line for the night: 10 minutes, 4 rebounds, and 9 points. The kid is only going to get better this season and could be a force next year.

The Longhorns begin conference play Saturday at 3pm against Colorado.

    It’s too bad we only get Durant for one year.
