Texas 79, Kansas 62

AUSTIN, Texas -- Ariel Atkins scored 22 points, including 10 in the pivotal third quarter, as No. 7 Texas overcame a challenge by unranked Kansas to win 79-62 on Saturday.

Atkins, a senior guard, also grabbed nine rebounds and had a career-best six steals, enabling Texas to maneuver from two points down at halftime to 14 ahead in the third quarter.

Lashann Higgs added 17 points for Texas (14-2, 5-1 Big 12). Sophomore Sug Sutton, making her third start at Texas, scored a career-best 14.

Junior Christalah Lyons led Kansas (11-6, 2-4) with 20 points. Brianna Osorio had 13 points and eight rebounds for the Jayhawks. Kansas hurt itself with 22 turnovers. Even so, the Jayhawks trailed by just five early in the fourth quarter after a 3-pointer by Osorio.

Texas trailed 31-29 at halftime after shooting an anemic 35.3 percent while committing 10 turnovers. Lyons and Osorio combined for 17 points in the half, taking advantage of Texas turnovers - including three steals by Lyons -- and defensive lapses.
