AUSTIN, Texas – Dylan Osetkowski scored 17 points to go with 14 rebounds and Texas defeated New Hampshire, 78-60, Tuesday night.

Osetkowski, a 6-foot-9 junior who transferred to Texas (2-0) after two seasons at Tulane, produced double-doubles in the Longhorns first two games. He had 13 points and 10 rebounds in the opener against Northwestern State.

Andrew Jones added 16 points for Texas, Kerwin Roach II had 12, and Jacob Young and Eric Davis Jr. scored 11 apiece. Young scored a team-high three 3-pointers, all during 10 minutes of the second half. He did not play in the first half.

Senior Tanner Leissner, a two-time all-American East Conference forward who is from the San Antonio area, led New Hampshire (1-1) with 14 points. Iba Camara, New Hampshire’s tallest player at 6-9, had 12 points and 10 rebounds.

The Longhorns shot 47.5 percent while limiting New Hampshire to 31.7.

Big picture

New Hampshire: The Wildcats scored 64 points in the paint and 24 second-chance points during a 95-39 victory against Wheelock, an NCAA Division III team from Boston, on Friday. Access to the basket was more difficult against Texas.

New Hampshire scored 14 points in the paint and seven second-chance points in the game.

Texas: The Longhorns played without 6-foot-11 freshman Mo Bamba, who is projected as a top-five NBA draft pick next June, when he hopes to leave school. Bamba suffered a concussion in practice on Sunday. Another freshman, 6-9 Jericho Sims, replaced Bamba in the starting lineup and produced eight points and four rebounds in 21 minutes.
