    COLUMBIA, Mo. -- Brittainey Raven scored a career-high 31 points and Texas (No. 18 ESPN/USA Today, No. 16 AP) overcame an early 10-point deficit to beat Missouri 66-56 on Tuesday night.

    The Longhorns (20-7, 8-5 Big 12) also got 10 points each from Ashley Lindsey and Kathleen Nash as they shook off back-to-back losses to Oklahoma State and Texas A&M.

    Alyssa Hollins led Missouri (12-14, 3-10) with 18 points. Jessra Johnson finished with 16 points and a game-high 10 rebounds.

    Texas got off to a slow start, hitting 3-of-12 field goals and falling behind 19-9.

    But a 3-pointer by Nash with 9:32 left in the first half put the Longhorns back in the game. Texas took the lead for good at 24-22 on a putback by Nash and led 30-24 at halftime.

    The Tigers closed within 34-31 early in the second half but got no closer the rest of the way, as Texas held them to 8-for-33 shooting in the period.
