UCLA Upended By No. 8 Texas, 63-61
Dec. 2, 2007
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Damion James dunked with 8 seconds remaining to help No. 8 Texas upset second-ranked UCLA 63-61 after the Longhorns blew all of a 16-point, first-half lead Sunday in the Big 12/Pac-10 Hardwood Series.
James and D.J. Augustin finished with 19 points each, and the Longhorns (7-0) survived their closest game yet after winning their first six by at least 15 points. James also had 10 rebounds.
Mbah a Moute missed a 3-pointer in front of UCLA's bench at the buzzer.
UCLA became the highest-ranked opponent Texas has beaten in a true road game in school history. Their previous highest-ranked win came over No. 4 Memphis in January 2006.
With the score tied at 61, Mbah a Moute was fouled by Connor Atchley. The UCLA player's first attempt spun out of the basket, setting up the Longhorns' final possession.
