AUSTIN, Texas - Nneka Enemkpali tied a Texas record with her fifth consecutive double-double Friday and the No. 13 Longhorns stifled winless Texas A&M-Corpus Christi 79-30.
Enemkpali had 11 points, 18 rebounds and three blocks for Texas (5-0) and Imani McGee-Stafford scored 20 points and grabbed 11 rebounds.
Texas held Texas A&M-Corpus Christi to just 15 percent shooting for the game, allowing just nine field goals, and led 46-9 at halftime. The nine points tied a Texas record for the fewest allowed in a half.
Enemkpali's double-double streak ties the school mark set by Tiffany Jackson in 2006.
Janae Blount led the Islanders (0-8) with 14 points, seven rebounds and four steals. She was the only Islanders player to make more than one basket.
