AUSTIN, Texas (AP) Cameron Ridley had 20 points and 10 rebounds and made a big defensive play with a block in the final minute as No. 24 Texas held on to beat Baylor 74-69 on Wednesday night.

Javan Felix scored 21 points on seven 3-pointers for Texas, which led by 18 points in the first half but saw Baylor pull within one late.

Isaiah Taylor scored 13 points for the Longhorns (21-7, 10-5 Big 12), including a twisting left-handed layup that put Texas ahead 72-69. Ridley blocked a layup by Kenny Chery before Taylor made two free throws.

Texas got a much-needed win to restore its confidence after losing three of its previous five games, including two blowout losses on the road.

Chery scored 27 points for Baylor (18-10, 6-9), which saw its four-game winning streak snapped.
