AUSTIN, Texas (AP) -- Brittainey Raven scored Texas' first 12 points and finished with 20 and the No. 13 Longhorns routed No. 25 Old Dominion 78-44 on Monday night to win the World Vision Classic.

Kathleen Nash finished with 15 points and had eight rebounds for Texas (3-0). She scored on a layup midway through the first half to tie the game 20-20. Nash was fouled during the shot, and made the free throw to complete the three-point play, and give the Longhorns their first lead of the game.

The Lady Monarchs (2-1) jumped out to an early lead thanks to leading scorer Tiffany Green, who finished with 17 points. The lead was short-lived as Texas rallied and closed out the half on a 23-6 run, holding Old Dominion to just three points in the final 11 minutes of the half.

Old Dominion returns to action on Friday, November 21st in a Homecoming contest against Virginia in a rematch of the thrilling NCAA Second Round overtime contest. Game time is 7:00 p.m. as the Lady Monarchs look to "PACK THE HOUSE". "PACK THE HOUSE" is a NCAA initiative to challenge fellow conference members in a contest to top their highest attendance from the previous season. Last year, 4825 people watched Old Dominion top William & Mary in the annual "HOOPS FOR A CURE" in the largest attended game of the regular season.
