AUSTIN, Texas (AP) Purdue's Carsen Edwards was pouring in points with shot after shot. Somebody had to match him if Texas was going to find a way to end a frustrating early-season losing streak.
Matt Coleman III delivered for the Longhorns, landing just enough late counterpunches to send the Longhorns to a 72-68 victory Sunday that snapped a three-game skid.
Coleman scored 22 points, none bigger than a late burst that scored six of Texas' final eight points and ensured the Longhorns held the slimmest of leads in the final minutes. Coleman's third 3-pointer pushed Texas to a 67-62 lead and his soft floater in the lane with 43 seconds left kept Texas ahead by four. He then made one of two free throws with 21 seconds left
