    COLLEGE STATION, Texas (Ticker) -- Six different players scored during a huge second-half run as Texas continued its dominance at Texas A&M with a 69-59 victory.

    Kenton Paulino started the key 16-0 burst with a free throw and Royal Ivey finished it with a jump shot as Texas (14-3, 5-1 Big 12) used its balance to turn a three-point deficit into a 59-46 lead with 8:11 remaining.

    The Longhorns had seven players score six points or more, including Ivey, who finished with six, 10 rebounds and seven assists. Reserves Brian Boddicker and Jason Klotz totaled 21 points.

    Paulino added 11 points for the Longhorns, who won their 10th consecutive trip to College Station and have taken 20 of the last 21 meetings overall. Texas is 6-0 at Reed Arena.

    Texas shot just 36 percent from the floor (24-of-66) but held Texas A&M to 33 percent (17-of-51) and committed only six of the game's 23 turnovers.

    Andy Slocum had eight points and 18 rebounds for the Aggies (7-10, 0-6), who were just 19-of-31 from the free-throw line en route to their sixth straight loss.
