Coming off a four-game losing streak, Josh Howard made sure the Austin Toros didn’t make it five against in-state rival Texas.
No. 15 tallied 19 points and 11 rebounds, and his double-double was a major driving force behind a comfortable 103-89 win.
The Show connected on a pair of jumpers, notching four points and four boards a back-and-forth the first frame. But when the Toros still trailed at the end of one, he put the game in his hands early in the second.
Josh recorded a steal and back-to-back jumpers in the early going, the second of which put Austin ahead 28-26—a lead his team held through the final bell.
After 10 points in the first half, The Show dropped another nine in the second. The Toros were plus-9 with No. 15 on the floor, helping them cruise to a victory and end their four-game skid.
