LAST MATCHUP: Nov. 18, 2010: Texas 90, Illinois 84 (OT)

NEW YORK (AP) - Texas’ two young frontcourt players had impressive numbers Thursday night. When it came to overtime, though, the senior man up front made sure the Longhorns took the lead for good.

Sophomore Jordan Hamilton had 25 points on 9-for-17 shooting and freshman Tristan Thompson had 20 points on 8-of-11 shooting, four assists and five blocks for Texas in the semifinals of the 2K Sports Classic. Senior Gary Johnson had 16 points, four and an assist in the Longhorns’ 8-0 run to start the overtime of their 90-84 victory over No. 13 Illinois. All three of them had seven rebounds.
