About the Longhorns: Texas is aiming to break a rare two-game losing streak; this is UT’s first game since losing 88-82 last Sunday against No. 9 Tennessee. … Here’s an odd stat: Sutton, the point guard, leads the team in rebounding (5.9 per game). … Warren was named Big 12 freshman of the week following her 21-point performance against the Lady Vols. Meanwhile, fellow freshman Charli Collier is trying to regain the form that made her one of the country’s most coveted prep players. In the loss to Tennessee she did not score and did not have a rebound in eight minutes of action.

Sagerer had 19 points and Walters 17. … The only victory of the season was an 80-52 decision over Webber International on Nov. 30. … Lynn Bria has been Stetson’s head coach for 11 years. … Stetson, located in Deland, Fla., was picked by league coaches to finish third in the Atlantic Sun Conference. … Last year the Hatters went 17-15, losing 63-55 in the ASUN championship game.
