COLLEGE STATION, Texas (Ticker) -- When you can't remember your last basket, it's not a good sign.
Texas A&M went the final 12:41 without a field goal as 18th-ranked Texas continued its dominance at College Station with a 69-59 Big 12 Conference victory.
The Longhorns (14-3, 5-1 Big 12) used a 16-0 spurt to turn a three-point deficit into a 59-46 lead with 8:11 remaining. Six different players scored during the run, which started with a free throw by Kenton Paulino and ended on a jumper by Royal Ivey.
The Aggies (7-10, 0-6) had grabbed a 46-43 lead on a jump shot by Marcus Watkins with 12:41 remaining, but they missed their last 14 shots en route to their sixth straight loss.
Texas A&M's drought lasted so long, 7-foot center Andy Slocum couldn't remember the team's last basket.
"They are a good defensive team, but we got down and couldn't get a shot," said Slocum, who had eight points and 18 rebounds. "I think we went about 10 minutes without a field goal. You can't win games like that."
The Aggies went 11-of-18 from the free-throw line over the last 12-plus minutes, never getting closer than 12 after Texas' big run. They finished the game at 33 percent from the field (17-of-51).
"We had some good looks but didn't knock the shots down," embattled coach Melvin Watkins said. "When that happens, it becomes harder to knock the next one down."
"They had some shots that they missed," Texas coach Rick Barnes said. "They had pretty good looks when we had breakdowns but couldn't get a shot to fall."
The Longhorns' 16-0 run was typical of their offense, which had seven players score six points or more. Ivey finished with six points, 10 rebounds and seven assists while reserves Brian Boddicker and Jason Klotz totaled 21 points.
Paulino added 11 for the Longhorns, who won their 10th consecutive trip to College Station and improved to 20-1 in the last 21 meetings overall. Texas is 6-0 at Reed Arena.
"I will tell you, it was a great win for us," Barnes said. "I have great admiration for how hard they play. This has been a tough place for other teams in the past."
Texas shot just 36 percent from the floor (24-of-66) but committed only six of the game's 23 turnovers. Thanks in part to a decided size disadvantage, the Longhorns' starters were just 15-of-39 from the field.
"We missed some shots underneath, but those shots are harder than they look when you are playing guys as athletic as A&M," Barnes said.
The Aggies could have stayed close by hitting their foul shots, but they finished just 19-of-31. Texas was just 16-of-26.
