LAHAINA, Hawaii (AP) - Sheldon McClellan scored 19 points from the bench to give Texas its first win in three days at the Maui Invitational, 69-55 over Mississippi State on Wednesday morning.

The Longhorns (3-2) went up by 18 points in the first half and coasted in the last 20 minutes, shooting 50% for the game.

Mississippi State (1-4) made one-third of its shots (17 of 51), improving in the second half after making only five field goals in the first 20 minutes.

Julien Lewis scored 13 of his 15 points in the first half. Cameron Ridley had 8 points and 12 rebounds.

Roquez Johnson led the Bulldogs with 18 points, starting after limping off the court with help in the second half of Tuesday's loss to Marquette.
