Texarkana Gazette - - SPORTS - By Mark Ros­ner

AUSTIN—Dy­lan Osetkowski scored 17 points to go with 14 re­bounds and Texas de­feated New Hamp­shire 78-60 Tues­day night.

Osetkowski, a 6-foot-9 ju­nior who trans­ferred to Texas (2-0) af­ter two sea­sons at Tu­lane, pro­duced dou­ble-dou­bles in the Longhorns first two games. He had 13 points and 10 re­bounds in the opener against North­west­ern State.

Andrew Jones added 16 points for Texas, Ker­win Roach II had 12, and Ja­cob Young and Eric Davis Jr. scored 11 apiece. Young scored a team-high three 3-point­ers, all dur­ing 10 min­utes of the sec­ond half. He did not play in the first half.

Se­nior Tan­ner Leiss­ner, a two-time all-Amer­i­can East Con­fer­ence for­ward who is from the San Antonio area, led New Hamp­shire (1-1) with 14 points. Iba Ca­mara, New Hamp­shire’s tallest player at 6-9, had 12 points and 10 re­bounds.

The Longhorns shot 47.5 per­cent while lim­it­ing New Hamp­shire to 31.7.

BIG PIC­TURE:

New Hamp­shire: The Wild­cats scored 64 points in the paint and 24 sec­ond-chance points dur­ing a 95-39 vic­tory against Whee­lock, an NCAA Di­vi­sion III team from Bos­ton, on Fri­day. Ac­cess to the bas­ket was more dif­fi­cult against Texas. New Hamp­shire scored 14 points in the paint and seven sec­ond-chance points in the game.

Texas: The Longhorns played with­out 6-foot11 fresh­man Mo Bamba, who is pro­jected as a top-five NBA draft pick next June, when he hopes to leave school. Bamba suf­fered a con­cus­sion in prac­tice on Sun­day. An­other fresh­man, 6-9 Jeri­cho Sims, re­placed Bamba in the start­ing lineup and pro­duced eight points and four re­bounds in 21 min­utes.
