AUSTIN When the starters failed to produce Sunday, Texas coach Karen Aston leaned on several reserves.

One of them, Lashann Higgs, scored 17 points, and the No. 5 Longhorns beat Sam Houston State 83 49.

Higgs, a highly touted freshman guard, produced a season high eight assists, matched her best with four steals and grabbed eight rebounds. The 17 points were one fewer than her best.

Another sub, former Duncanville star Ariel Atkins, added 12 points as the Longhorns (11 0) increased their regular season nonconference winning streak to 25 games, going back to the 2013 14 season.

Reserves Kelsey Lang and Jordan Hosey scored 10 apiece.

The bench accounted for 62 points, and Aston saw other value as well.

“Right now, the players that come off of our bench, those guys really give us really good defensive energy,” Aston said. “You really have to have that in [Big 12] play.”

Higgs, blessed with exceptional quickness, is still becoming acclimated to college basketball.

“What I had to learn is slowing down and looking at each option instead of going, going, going,” Higgs said.

Atkins, a starter last season, played 19 minutes as a reserve in her second game since Cheap Jerseys from China
returning from off season surgery to her right ankle. She played only six minutes in her first game back, against Arkansas on Dec. 20.

“Physically I feel fine,” Atkins said. “Conditioning wise, I’m still working on that.”

Shernise Robertson led Sam Houston (4 6) with 16 points but converted only 4 of 14 shots from the field.

The Longhorns missed 10 of their first 11 shots but warmed up quickly enough to fashion a 13 0 push in the first quarter and a 36 17 halftime lead.

Higgs had nine points, four assists and four rebounds in the half.

Oklahoma State 76, Savannah State 48: In Stillwater, Okla., Brittney Martin scored 26 points and added 10 rebounds, and sophomore Kaylee Jensen finished with 10 points and 12 rebounds as Oklahoma State cruised in its final game before Big 12 play begins.
