AUSTIN – Texas used big runs at the end of the first half and in the middle of the second and not-in-our-house defense via 14 blocked shots to soar past Kansas State 62-49 in its regular-season finale Saturday before 12,053 at the Erwin Center.

The Longhorns (19-12, 8-10 in Big 12 play), in dire need of a final victory and likely at least one win in next week’s Big 12 tournament to earn a spot in the NCAAs, roused from a ragged start and pushed past dogged Kansas State with a 14-6 run to end the first half with a 34-26 lead.
