James scored 13 points with a career-high 18 rebounds and Justin Mason added 10 points and seven rebounds for the Longhorns (26-5, 13-3), who will be the top seed in this week Big 12 Tournament in Kansas City, Mo.

Eaton and Terrel Harris led the Cowboys (26-5, 13-3) with 12 points apiece. Marcus Dove had nine points and 13 rebounds.

The Cowboys finished the regular season with two straight losses will play Texas Tech in the tournament's first game Thursday.
