Longhorns bounce back against rival, Sam Houston

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) -- Ashley Lindsey scored 15 points and
Erneisha Bailey added 10 to help No. 18 Texas defeat Sam Houston
State 83-33 on Monday night.

The Longhorns (1-1) led throughout the game and turned to their
bench for 56 of their points. They also took advantage of 29 Sam
Houston State turnovers, turning those into 35 points.

Texas used a 16-3 run at the start of the second half to take a
59-13 lead with 13:19 left.

The Longhorns outrebounded Sam Houston State 62-28.

Jamie Barr led Sam Houston State (0-1) with seven points.

Texas shot 40 percent (29-for-72) from the field while Sam
Houston State was held to just 22 percent (12-for-54).

"Ashley has tremendous potential, and we saw that tonight,"
Texas coach Judy Conradt said. "She runs the floor well, uses her
arms and her length to her advantage. She is someone we will count
on down the line."

In addition to her career-high 15 points, Lindsey also had five
blocked shots.

"Rebounding and tempo were two areas that we needed to do
better in and things we talked about since Friday and the loss to
New Mexico," Conradt said. "I was proud of our rebounding effort.
That was one of our points of emphasis the last few days. This is
going to be important that everyone crash the boards."
