Mack powers No. 23 Texas over ULM 80-59
AUSTIN, Texas (AP) Tevin Mack returned from a one-game suspension with 14 points as No. 23 Texas used a big second half to roll over Louisiana-Monroe 80-59 on Monday night.
The Longhorns were back to full strength with the return of Mack and guard Kerwin Roach Jr., giving Texas (2-0) some of the muscle, speed and depth it lacked in a sloppy season-opening win over Incarnate Word.
Louisiana-Monroe (1-1) cut Texas' lead to 46-40 on a 3-pointer from Jordan Harris before the Longhorns responded with a 16-4 run. Kendal Yancey scored five straight points, made a 3-pointer and threw down a dunk in transition that made it 62-44 with just under 8 minutes left.
