KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Lashann Higgs and Sugg Sutton scored 19 points apiece and Texas handed No. 17 Tennessee its first loss of the season 66-60  in the Big 12/SEC Challenge.

Higgs’ basket with 8:56 to play started an 8-0 run capped by a pair of Sutton buckets that had the Longhorns on top for good at 58-53.
