Texas average margin of victory this season is 38.7, but now the road now gets considerably tougher. The Horns head to Madison Square Garden to face nationally-ranked Arizona, 8 p.m., (CST) next Tuesday in the Jimmy V Classic (ESPN telecast).
"Its great that we get to go back to New York twice," said Ivey, who finished with 11 points (3-of-4 FG, 5-of-6 FT). "Im looking forward to that. I dont get to go home that much. Were back in the Garden and thats a great place to play. Thats the Mecca of basketball right there."
The Horns shot 51.5 percent from the field (34-of-44) and had their best night of the season from the charity stripe (28-of-37, 75.7 percent). Defensively, Texas continues to hold opponents to no more than 41 percent shooting, limiting the Terriers to 26-of 64 (40.6 percent) on the night.
Junior C Jason Klotz bucket completed a 9-0 run, giving Texas an 18-8 margin with little more than 12 minutes remaining until intermission. Wofford hung tough on the boards to keep it a single digit game before F Brian Boddickers trey put the Horns up, 29-17. The senior contributed 10 points (4-of-8 FG, 1-2 FT) off the bench.
Terrier turnovers began to mount against the Longhorn full court press as junior G Edgar Moreno converted steals into three straight layups. Moutons steal and slam dunk completed a 10-0 run, spotting Texas a 41-20 lead with 4:20 left until halftime. Wofford managed an 8-3 run before a Klotz free throw and Moutons trey gave Texas a 47-28 margin with 58 seconds remaining. Texas took a 49-32 lead into the locker room.
G Sydmill Harris shot from beyond the arch gave Texas a 68-42 second half advantage while consecutive treys from Taylor pushed the lead to 74-45 with 11:35 remaining. A pair of C Brad Buckman free throws kept Texas comfortably in front, 81-52, with 8:23 on the game clock while another Harris three-pointer made it, 89-58, two minutes later.
With Texas leading 92-63, Boddicker tallied seven of Texas final 11points to complete the scoring at 103-72.
