Double-double leads Texas to victory
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.
