AUSTIN, Texas -- Brittainey Raven scored 16 points to lead Texas (No. 14 ESPN/USA Today, No. 13 AP) to a 74-66 victory over Kansas on Wednesday night and a four-game win streak in the Big 12 for the first time since 2006.

The Longhorns jumped out to a quick lead against Kansas (13-9, 2-7) and built a solid 33-17 advantage with just over 3 minutes remaining in the half. Erika Arriaran helped pace Texas (18-5, 6-3) in the first half with key jumpers, and finished with 12 points. Ashleigh Fontenette added 14 points.

Kansas closed the gap in the second half when Nicollette Smith, who finished with 18 points and four rebounds, made a jumper to make it a four-point game at 49-45.

Arriaran was fouled on a 3-point attempt on Texas' next possession and made all three free throws. Kansas' LaChelda Jacobs converted a three-point play with a layup and a free throw on Kansas' next trip down the court to make it a four-point game.

After Jacobs closed the gap to 60-57 with a running jumper in the lane, the Jayhawks could get no closer as Earnesia Williams made a wide-open 3-pointer to help Texas ice the game.
