KANSAS CITY, Mo., March 10 (UPI) -- Jordan Hamilton led Texas with 22 points Thursday and the No. 10 Longhorns reached the Big 12 Tournament semifinals with a 74-54 win over Oklahoma.

Texas lost three out of four late in the regular season, but the Longhorns started quickly against the Sooners and regained the form that pushed them as high as No. 2 in the national rankings this year.

Hamilton added 10 rebounds while Tristan Thompson had 13 points and 11 boards. Texas took an 11-2 lead and held a 43-20 advantage at halftime. The Longhorns had 12 offensive rebounds to just one for the Sooners.

Texas (26-6) will meet either Missouri or Texas A&M in the semifinals Friday. The other semifinal will send No. 2 Kansas against surprising Colorado. The Jayhawks fought off Oklahoma State 63-62 and Colorado put together an 87-75 upset of No. 23 Kansas State.

Oklahoma (14-18) was led by Cade Davis with 17 points.
