Texas holds on 70-64 to beat Vanderbilt and give the Big 12 a victory in the Big 12-SEC challenge.

Texas looked very good in this game at times with solid rebounding, a fast transition game, and intensity on defense.

It also looked inconsistent at times and let Vanderbilt hang around in a game that should have been won by double-digits.

Texas missed a lot of free-throws down the stretch, which could have widened the lead.

The free-throw shooting is something that can get better with practice, so it shouldn't be worried about too much by Longhorn fans.

Moving forward there are a lot of bright spots in this Texas team. Four players scored 10 or more points for Texas, showing consistency on offense.

It will have its hands full in a Big 12 that includes Kansas and Oklahoma State, but Texas fans should feel good about this game.
