Kim English scored 18 points and Keith Ramsey added 12 points and 11 rebounds for his first career double-double as Missouri beat No. 15 Texas 82-77 on Wednesday night.

Justin Hamilton led the Longhorns (20-6, 6-5) with 24 points off the bench and Damion James added 18 as the team ranked No. 1 for two weeks in mid-January lost for the sixth time in nine games and fell into a sixth-place tie in the Big 12.

Missouri (19-7, 7-4) raced to an 8-0 lead in the first two minutes as Texas turned the ball over on its first three possessions. The gap grew to 11-1 less than three minutes in, giving Missouri enough of a cushion to take a 32-31 halftime lead despite shooting just 30 percent for the half and making only one of its nine 3-point attempts.

Texas took a one-point lead early in the second half as the teams traded points with six lead changes before English had 11 points in a six-minute spurt to break it open. Missouri led by 12 before Texas made two late 3-pointers.
