Put them all together, and the No. 10 Longhorns pulled off a regular sweep of Oklahoma State with an 89-75 win Tuesday night that put them in the fight for No. 1 in the Big 12.

Carr scored 21 points, Allen added 17, and Cunningham scored a career-high 15 to lead the Longhorns (17-3, 6-2), who scored the most points in their Big 12 wins this season after a defensive tussle 56-46 when they met debuted with the Cowboys on January 7.

Oklahoma State blocked 12 shots in that game but could not match them in the rematch as Texas pressed at a fast pace.

“We’re always looking to run. That’s something we always try to have as an identity,” Carr said. All season we’ve been focusing on speed.”

The Texans’ performance improved to 10-2 under interim head coach Rodney Terry. He took over the team in mid-December when Chris Baird was suspended and then sacked three weeks later. A Texas win and No. 12 Iowa State’s win over No. 5 Kansas State have all three teams sitting 6-2 in league play.
