Jaguars can't slow Cook, Longhorns
Austin American-Statesman
Pick a reason to smile. It could be Aubrey Cook opening Thursday's game 4 for 4 from the field and matching a career high in points in her first start of the season. It could be Earnesia Williams running the floor from one end to the other like the athlete Texas needs her to be. It could be the seven points Southern University scored on Texas during the first 20 minutes, the best first-half defensive performance in Longhorns history. Yes, things are good for the Longhorns right now. And while their 71-23 victory over winless Southernat the Erwin Center doesn't make the Longhorns national title contenders, it's another early-season victory for a team that needs as many as it can get.
