Texas 95, Stetson 59

Lashann Higgs scored 18 points and No. 2 Texas opened its season with a 95-59 victory over Stetson on Sunday.

A former high school all-American, Higgs started three games before this season. She became a starter with the departure of Brianna Taylor, a senior last season who was Big 12 defensive player of the year. Against Stetson, Higgs converted 7 of 9 shots from the field and 4 of 5 free throws to finish one point shy of her career best in only 18 minutes on the court.

Higgs, who has admitted to a lack of confidence in the past said, "I played OK. You have good games and you have bad games. You just have to take it as it comes."

But asked if Sunday was a good or bad day, she smiled and said, "I guess an exceptionally good day."

Senior guard Ariel Atkins said Higgs has worked to improve her skills and confidence.

"She's growing into the player she wants to be," Atkins said. "We saw a transformation over the summer."

Senior Brooke McCarty, the Big 12 player of the year last season, scored 14 for Texas. Atkins produced a career-best six assists and four steals for the Longhorns. Junior Jordan Hosey added a career-high 13 points and eight rebounds.

Kennedi Colclough led Stetson (1-1) with 19 points. Brittney Chambers scored 12.

Texas shot a tidy 48.2 percent. Stetson wasn't bad, either hitting 45.8.

"For an opener, and having a lot of players that are in completely different roles, and (four) new players, it was a good day for us," Texas coach Karen Aston said. "We need to get better defensively. They exposed us in some areas."
