The Longhorns came in averaging 98.2 points, but it was defense
and Boddicker's all-around play that made this one look easy. Texas
held New Orleans to 29-percent shooting. The Privateers were just
7-of-24 from beyond the 3-point line and 18-of-62 overall.
Texas led 22-20 midway through the first quarter before a 19-4
run opened things up.
Boddicker's 3-pointer from the left corner gave the Longhorns a
Texas opened the second period with an 11-4 run that stretched
the lead to 52-31. Kenny Taylor hit a 3-pointer, Boddicker put back
a miss for a layup and Mouton added four more points in the run
that all but put the game away.
Taylor, who got his first start after transferring last summer
from Baylor, finished with eight points.
The Longhorns, who rolled through their first four games before
losing to No. 9 Arizona in New York, head back there Saturday to
play No. 4 Duke.
