James drives Texas to 2nd round of Big 12 Tourney

Damion James had 28 points and 16 rebounds, and Texas pulled away from plucky Iowa State on Wednesday night, beating the Cyclones 82-75 in a hard-fought Big 12 opening-round game.
James had three points, three rebounds and an assist during an
11-0 run that turned a one-point lead into a 12-point spread. The
sixth-seeded Longhorns (24-8) play third-seeded and No. 21 Baylor,
a team that beat them twice during the regular season, in the
quarterfinals.
After Iowa State (15-17), the No. 11 seed, cut the lead to six
points at 75-69, Jai Lucas hit a free throw for Texas and missed
the second attempt. James grabbed the rebound, and Avery Bradley
sank a pair of foul shots to put the Longhorns on top 78-69.
Gary Johnson had 15 points and 10 rebounds for Texas.
Marquis Gilstrap scored 17 points for the Cyclones, and Craig
Brackins added 15.
