    AUSTIN, Texas -- Kathleen Nash tied a career-high with five 3-pointers and finished with 19 points as Texas (No. 23 AP) beat Sam Houston State 94-50 on Sunday.

    Chassidy Fussell added 16 points for the Longhorns (11-3) and Ashley Gayle had a double-double with 10 points and 11 rebounds.

    In its final game before the start of Big 12 play, Texas took an 8-0 lead against the Bearkats (6-8).

    Entering the game having won consecutive tournament championships, the Longhorns extended the lead when Ashleigh Fontenette made a steal, converted the fastbreak layup and was fouled for a three-point play with 11:45 remaining in the half.

    Texas ended the final 10 minutes of the first half on a 29-7 run to take a 49-17 lead.

    Britni Martin scored 14 points and had seven rebounds for Sam Houston State.

    The Longhorns open Big 12 play Saturday at Missouri.
