Dec. 10, 2011
AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Cokie Reed returned to the court after an early injury scare and led No. 25 Texas past Michigan State 61-53 Saturday.
Reed, who missed all of last season after undergoing surgery on her right foot, left in the first half following a hard fall. She was back before halftime and finished with 14 points and eight rebounds for the Longhorns (6-2).
Porsche Poole scored 13 points for Michigan State (7-4).
Michigan State took an early 11-3 advantage, powered by a trio of 3-pointers. A layup by Ashleigh Fontenette gave Texas its first lead of the game at 16-15 and keyed an 18-7 run by the Longhorns.
Texas never trailed after that in its first game since losing at No. 8 Tennessee on Dec. 4.
