    AUSTIN, Texas (AP) -- Kevin Durant scored 21 points and had 15 rebounds to lead Texas to an 84-52 victory over Texas-Arlington Tuesday night.

    It was Durant's seventh double-double in his first 13 collegiate games and the 11th time he has scored at least 20 points.

    A.J. Abrams scored 20 points and D.J. Augustin added 14 points for Texas (10-3).

    Jermaine Griffin had a double-double with 16 points and 12 rebounds to help Texas-Arlington (4-8) keep things a lot more interesting through the first 20 minutes than last season's 38-point loss. Texas-Arlington coupled a poor shooting performance by the Longhorns with one of their own as they shot 27 percent from the floor compared to 39 percent from Texas in the first half.

    In the end, though, there was just too much Durant. He scored 16 points and had seven rebounds in the second half.

    A reverse layup from Larry Posey gave Texas-Arlington a 14-13 lead with 10:37 left in the first half. That was the only lead the Mavericks gained all night. Craig Winder scored four points and grabbed four rebounds off the bench for Texas during a 14-7 run to end the half.

    Texas-Arlington cut the Longhorns' lead to six two minutes into the half. But Abrams and Durant helped Texas pull away.

    The Longhorns had 11 blocks and 30 points in the paint. They extend their win streak to two games heading into conference play at Colorado on Saturday.
