The Longhorns finally looked like a complete and dangerous basketball team for the first time since the win over Texas Tech. All five starters scored in double figures and the Texas defense locked down Oklahoma State, holding the Cowboys to 38% shooting and forcing 16 turnovers. OSU star forward Mario Boggan chipped in 16 points but only grabbed three rebounds and had none on the offensive end.

Star of the game for Texas was the much maligned A.J. Abrams who finally snapped out of his shooting slump with 17 points and even added some solid work on defense. Abrams’ shot was falling and he did a much better job of getting open for his shots and not settling for mid-range jumpers on the move. After struggling to get involved in the first half, Kevin Durant did his usual thing in the second half and finished with a game high 21 points and 12 boards. D.J. Augustin was a little rough at the start of the game and turned the ball over carelessly a few times but settled in and contributed 19 points and 8 assists. Augustin’s 3-pointer from the state of Texas emblem at half court to beat the shot clock was the play of game.

    Yeah, that shot Augustin hit from 30 ft was ridiculous. And it definitely was good to see Abrams make some shots finally. I was getting tired of seeing him miss crazy 12 ft one-handed floaters.

    For Abrams it’s all about shot selection, he’s got to realize if his shot isn’t open that he’s got guys like Durant, Damion James, and DJ to get the ball to who can make plays. I think he was getting frustrated so hopefully last night’s game knocks him out of his funk.
