Brady Sanders scored nine points, sparking the big second-half burst for No. 4 Texas as the Longhorns ended a two-game losing skid with a 55-44 win over Texas Tech on Saturday.
The Longhorns had one of the best starts in school history before losing consecutive games at Iowa State and Oklahoma. The return home produced a return to form as Texas outscored Texas Tech 24-10 in the paint and got 41 points off the bench.
Sanders scored seven in a two-minute burst in the second half that opened up a double-digit lead after the Lady Raiders had pulled within four.
Nekia Jones added 11 points for the Longhorns (14-2, 3-2 Big 12), which held Texas Tech to 27 percent shooting.
Amber Battle scored 10 points for the Lady Raiders (12-5, 2-3)
