LAS VEGAS (AP) During the first three games of the season, the Texas Longhorns were putting big numbers up on offense, averaging 105 points, second in the nation.

On Friday against LSU, the No. 2 Longhorns seemed on a slow cruise control with a lead in the teens for most of the game. Add to that, the Longhorns turned it over 23 times against a feisty LSU team at the Las Vegas Shootout on Friday.

With all their problems, it was enough for a 75-66 win at the South Point Arena.
