AUSTIN, Texas — Freshman guard Cory Joseph scored a career-high 19 points and No. 25 Texas ran its non-conference home winning streak to 24 games with a 101-65 win over Texas State on Saturday.

J'Covan Brown added 18 points for the Longhorns (7-2) , who shook off a lackluster defeat at USC a week earlier with six first-half 3-pointers against the overmatched Bobcats.

Texas hasn't lost a non-conference game at home since a 67-66 loss to Wisconsin on Dec. 29, 2007.

Joseph was 5 of 8 on 3s and Brown 4 of 5 as Texas tied a season high with 11. The Longhorns had five players score in double figures.

Tony Bishop had 12 points and eight rebounds for Texas State (2-5), which lost its fourth straight.
