AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Demarcus Holland made the biggest play of the game and the Longhorns relied on another late comeback in Friday night's 72-69 victory over Texas-Arlington.

Holland give Texas a 70-69 lead with 1:03 left when he ripped the ball away from Reger Dowell and charged down court for a two-handed dunk. He also had a career-high 23 points and 11 rebounds for his first career double-double.

Texas (6-1) trailed by as many nine points in the second half, but charged late with a 14-1 run to snag a 65-61 lead at the 4:54 mark. The Mavericks (2-6) played tough the rest of the way, but the Longhorns endured for their fourth second half comeback-victory of the season.

Cameron Ridley recorded his third double-double of the year with 10 points and 11 rebounds.

Brandon Edwards had 16 points for the Mavericks whose five road losses are their worst road start since 2002-03.
