Texas routs another patsy

AUSTIN, Texas - Brandon Mouton scored 20 to lead six Texas players in double figures and the second-ranked Longhorns routed Wofford 103-72 Thursday night.

Texas topped 100 points for the second time in a string of early tuneups. Kenny Taylor scored 13, Brad Buckman and Royal Ivey 11 and Sydmill Harris and Brian Boddicker 10 for the Longhorns.

Adrien Borders led the Terriers with 20 points.

Wofford, the second-smallest Division I school with 1,100 students, was the latest small fry to play the role of punching bag on Texas' homecourt. The Longhorns beat the smallest Division I school, Centenary (850 students), 94-59 last week.

Texas next faces a tough two-week stretch with games against No. 7 Arizona and No. 6 Duke.

NO. 4 MISSOURI: University president Elson Floyd said he feels "much better" about allegations of inappropriate academic help for former player Ricky Clemons after a meeting with the NCAA.

Floyd also said the school hasn't been cleared, the long-running NCAA investigation isn't over and he doesn't know when it will end.

NO. 7 ARIZONA: Ryan O'Hara, the Wildcats' third-string quarterback, was added to the basketball roster. Forward Isaiah Fox likely will miss at least three months after knee surgery.


LOUISVILLE 93, W. KY. 63: Luke Whitehead had 22 points and 10 rebounds to lead seven Cardinals in double figures, and visiting Louisville earned its first win. The Cardinals made up for an overtime loss last weekend to Iowa that dropped them from No. 17 to one place outside the Top 25 by keeping the Hilltoppers winless in four games.

USF: Coach Robert McCullum said forward Sam Barber has rejoined the team. Barber, a redshirt freshman who started the season opener, had taken a leave from the Bulls for the past week for "personal reasons." He missed games Saturday vs. Wright State and Tuesday at Providence. McCullum said Barber would make the trip to Nebraska for Saturday's game against the Cornhuskers. Junior forward Brandon Brigman (hernia) did not practice and is not expected to travel.

ECU: Forward Corey Rouse was suspended indefinitely for a violation of a team policy, coach Bill Herrion said.


NO. 9 MINNESOTA 82, CREIGHTON 71: Lindsay Whalen scored 30 to lead the host Golden Gophers past the stubborn Bluejays and give coach Pam Borton her 100th win.

NO. 19 UTAH 88, GONZAGA 64: Reserve Julie Wood scored a season-high 16 and Kim Smith added 15 for the host Utes.

PORTLAND 76, NO. 20 OREGON 58: Khalila O'Reilly-Williams scored 17 to lead the host Pilots to their first win over a I-A team this season.

USF: Junior forward Rae Rae Sayles has been suspended for a violation of team rules, coach Jose Fernandez said. She will rejoin the Bulls, who next play Dec. 14 at Florida State, on Tuesday. Sayles has started five of six games and is averaging 8.6 points and 7.0 rebounds.
