AUSTIN, Texas -- Kevin Hervey was a bit uncomfortable when the basketball game started. The Texas-Arlington forward, returning from a torn ACL, needed some time to regain his bearings.He was certainly sturdy on Tuesday night. Hervey scored 18 points and grabbed 10 rebounds and Texas-Arlington defeated Texas for the first time ever, 72-61 Tuesday.The Longhorns (3-3) won the first 11 games in the series but needed overtime for a seven-point victory last season. Drew Charles supplemented Hervey with 12 points, all in the second half. Jalen Jones and Jorge Bilbao scored 10 each.Hervey averaged 18 points while making 45 percent of his shots before the injury forced him to miss the final 19 games last season. Before Tuesday, the 6-foot-7 junior averaged 12 points and was shooting 34.8 percent.Any injury a person has, there will be some doubt, Hervey said. The process is overcoming the mental adversity.Texas-Arlington (5-3) missed its first 11 3-point shots in the first half before hitting two of its last three. Hervey made one with 15 seconds left to give the Mavericks a 30-27 halftime lead.I think we saw glimpses tonight of what he is capable of doing, Texas-Arlington coach Scott Cross said. I think he is starting to get confidence.Texas was even worse on 3-pointers in the first half, missing 13 of 15.The Mavericks heated up in the second half, converting 5 of 12 treys, including four by Charles. Texas never improved, making 1 of 8 in the second half.Tevin Mack led Texas with 19 points. Kerwin Roach scored 16 but committed six turnovers. Jarrett Allen produced 13 points and 12 rebounds.The Longhorns have lost three straight, but the previous two were against Northwestern and Colorado from Power Five Conferences.Everybodys mad, Roach said. There should be a better result. Even though the shots arent falling, its what else can you do?Texas coach Shaka Smart was disappointed that deficiencies on offense led to lapses on defense.What happens is when your shooting, or your offense isnt going the way you want as a team, as an individual, it has a residual effect on your defense, Smart said. Thats not acceptable.BIG PICTURETexas-Arlington: The Mavericks have been competitive against their last two opponents from Power Five conferences. Last season Texas-Arlington won consecutive games against Ohio State and Memphis.Texas: The Longhorns struggled at home for the second time against a mid-major opponent. They beat Incarnate Word by five on opening night, albeit while two key Longhorns were suspended for violation of team rules.SOPHOMORE SLUMPTexas guard Eric Davis has converted just 6 of 36 3-pointers, 16.7 percent accuracy. Last season Davis hit 38.2 percent of his 3-pointers.Hes not playing with a lot of confidence, Smart said. Hes not playing with an aggressiveness. Eric Davis is a good shooter. Hes struggling right now.UP NEXTTexas-Arlington is at North Texas on Saturday afternoon.Texas hosts Alabama on Friday night. 76ers Jerseys China . Aaron Harrison scored a 22 points for Kentucky (6-1), which has won four in a row following a Nov. 12 loss to current No. 1 Michigan State.

Wholesale 76ers Jerseys Free Shipping . -- Devin Hester is done returning kicks in Chicago. Cheap Stitched 76ers Jerseys . The 19-year-old Olsen played 34 games with the Kelowna Rockets of the WHL this season. In that time, hes recorded 17 goals and 17 assists with 36 penalty minutes. KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- Tennessee defensive end Derek Barnett is returning home with a chance to make history.Barnett, who is from Nashville, heads into the final regular-season game of his junior year with 31 career sacks. That leaves him just one shy of Reggie Whites 33-year-old Tennessee career record.All season, Barnett has downplayed the importance of setting that record. That hasnt changed now that hes only one away it as he heads to his hometown for the 24th-ranked Volunteers Saturday matchup with Vanderbilt (5-6, 2-5 SEC).I would be excited to catch that record back home, but Id be more excited if we get a `W, Barnett said after earning his 31st sack last week in a 63-37 victory over Missouri. Every time I step on the field, thats what Im worried about is winning. If thats me getting a sack, helping the team win, then (thats) good. Or if thats me just affecting the quarterback, getting no sacks and we still win, Im fine with that.Barnett already is the first Southeastern Conference player ever to post at least 10 sacks in three separate seasons. After posting 10 sacks each of his first two seasons, Barnett has an SEC-leading 11 sacks this year.Saturdays game also matches the SECs two top players in tackles for loss, as Barnett has 17 and Vanderbilts Zach Cunningham has 16 +.Tennessee (8-3, 4-3) has needed Barnett more than ever to lead a defense decimated by injuries at every level.The line lost three of its top tackles when Shy Tuttle and Kahlil McKenzie suffered season-ending injuries and Danny OBrien was dismissed from the team. The linebacker corps lost Jalen Reeves-Maybin and Quarte Sapp to season-ending injuries and also was missing Darrin Kirkland Jr. for five games due to a high ankle sprain. The secondary lost Cam Sutton for six games and could be without leading tackler Todd Kelly Jr. for a second straight game this week.I remember him in the locker room at halftime getting on guys, pushing the defense to play better, quarterback Joshua Dobbs said. If he sees guys are slacking or he sees guys are doing well, hes the first one to say anything.Barnett also has led by example..dddddddddddd. He has played his best when the stakes are highest, as all 11 of his sacks this season have come in SEC competition.When I watch him, that dudes a monster, Vanderbilt coach Derek Mason said. Hes a beast one-on-one. Ive seen him beat one guy, two guys, three guys.Barnetts 50 career tackles for loss rank third in school history and put him three away from the school record set by Leonard Little, who had 53 from 1995-97.The only active Football Bowl Subdivision player with more career sacks is Texas A&Ms Myles Garrett, who has 32 +.Hes got a great motor, said Tennessee offensive tackle Brett Kendrick, who has the unenviable task of lining up against Barnett in practice. Even if you stop his initial move, hes always got a counter off that one, and even if you stop that, hes probably got a counter off that one. He just never stops.As well as Barnett has played, Tennessees defense has struggled overall. Tennessee ranks 11th out of 14 SEC teams in total defense and has given up over 400 yards rushing in each of its last two games.That may explain why Barnett has been overlooked on the national award circuit. Barnett wasnt selected as a finalist for the Bronko Nagurski Trophy and the Chuck Bednarik Award, separate honors given out to the nations best overall defensive player.I dont want to take away from anybody else who was nominated for these national awards, but I dont know what else an individual has to do, Tennessee coach Butch Jones said. (Considering) the transformation of our football program -- the mentality, him as a person, him as a competitor and the productivity that hes meant to our football program -- I think youd be hard pressed anywhere in the country to find anybody better or more deserving than Derek Barnett.---AP Sports Writer Teresa Walker in Nashville, Tennessee, contributed to this report.---More AP college football: www.collegefootball.ap.org and https://twitter.com/AP-Top25---Follow Steve Megargee at www.twitter.com/stevemegargee Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
