Freshman Tiffany Jackson had 19 points and 12 rebounds in her home debut, leading No. 2 Texas to an 89-58 victory over UCLA on Tuesday night at Austin, Texas.

Jamie Carey scored 16 points as the Longhorns, who improved to 3-0, ran their home winning streak to 21. Texas shot 57% from the field.

Lisa Willis scored 17 points for the Bruins (1-1), making five of UCLA's nine three-point baskets.

Gennifer Arranaga's three-pointer sparked a 12-2 UCLA run that closed the first half.
