AUSTIN, Texas (Ticker) -- Eighth-ranked Texas concludes its non-conference schedule Sunday afternoon as it hosts Mt. St Mary's.

The Longhorns (8-2) have won three straight since back-to-back losses to Arizona and Notre Dame last month. After blowing out McNeese State, Texas struggled to defeat Princeton and Louisiana Tech.

On Monday, Texas posted a 58-50 win over Louisiana Tech as coach Rick Barnes picked up his 300th career win and 98th with Texas.

In the win, Brandon Mouton led the Longhorns in scoring for the second straight game, scoring 12 of his 16 points in the first half.

Texas won despite a poor effort from star guard T.J. Ford, who was just 2-of-9 from the field and committed four turnovers.

Mt. St Mary's has won three straight and five of six since season-opening losses to North Carolina and George Washington.

The Mountaineers (5-3) are led by Landy Thompson, who averages 13.5 points per game and Pat Atangana, who averages 12.3.

In Monday's 70-69 victory over Navy, Jason Epps and Chris Sumner scored 16 points apiece as Mt. St Mary's established its best eight-game start since entering Division I in 1988.

Sunday is the first meeting between the teams.
