Sports Minute: Here is the latest Texas sports news from The Associated Press

WACO, Texas (AP) - Terry Maston scored 24 points and Baylor beat No. 7 Texas Tech 59-57, ending the Red Raiders' seven-game winning streak after the Big 12 leaders lost top scorer Keenan Evans to a foot injury in the first half. Maston, who finished two points shy of his career high set in the previous game against Texas, hit the go-ahead shot with 1:26 remaining. The Bears continued their push with a fifth straight win following a 2-7 start in the rugged Big 12.

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - Jaylen Barford scored 14 of his 21 points in the second half to lead Arkansas to its fourth straight win, 94-75 over No. 21 Texas A&M. The triumph was the 10th straight over the Aggies in Fayetteville for the Razorbacks, who lost in College Station on Jan. 30. It was also Arkansas' third home win over a ranked opponent this season, joining victories over Minnesota and Tennessee.

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Soon as George Springer and his World Series MVP trophy arrived at Houston Astros camp, the All-Star leadoff hitter began knocking balls over the fence. Carlos Correa and Alex Bregman picked up right where they left off, too, silky smooth fielding grounders on the left side of the infield. Coming off a championship and with all that young talent in place, no wonder this tight-knit "family" is talking openly about building a dynasty.

NORMAN, Okla. (AP) - Dylan Osetkowski scored 21 points to help Texas defeat No. 23 Oklahoma 77-66 and extend the Sooners' losing streak to five games. Trae Young scored 26 points on 7 for 21 shooting for the Sooners.

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - Vladimir Brodziansky was a known quantity in the Big 12. Not so Kouat Noi and Ahmad Hamdy-Mohamed. Redshirt freshman Noi scored a season-high 19 points to lead six players in double figures and TCU stormed back from an early 12-point deficit to beat Oklahoma State 90-70 on Saturday night.

PINE BLUFF, Ark. (AP) - Gary Blackston and Dennis Jones each scored 17 points to lead five players in double figures and Prairie View A&M beat Arkansas-Pine Bluff 76-71 in overtime. J.D. Wallace's layup put the Panthers up 66-64 to start overtime and Prairie View never trailed again.

OREM, Utah (AP) - Jake Toolson and Brandon Randolph each scored 16 points and Utah Valley knocked off Texas Rio Grande Valley, 84-72 in a Western Athletic Conference. Utah Valley finishes the regular season with a 14-1 record on its home floor after snapping New Mexico State's 11-game win streak. The Wolverines close out the regular season at CSU Bakersfield and at Grand Canyon.

LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - Frank Bartley IV scored 25 points and led five teammates into double-figure scoring as Louisiana picked up its 13th win at home to tie the school record as the Ragin' Cajuns rolled past Texas Arlington, 100-79 in a Sun Belt Conference battle. With four games left to play in the regular season, Louisiana (23-4, 13-1) now holds a three-game lead over second-place Georgia State after the Panthers lost back-to-back games.
