The Longhorns freshman also scored 15 points and handed out six assists.
“I thought Myck Kabongo was terrific,” said Texas coach Rick Barnes. “I think he played the best game he's played since he's been at Texas.”
Wednesday night against Texas Tech, the Cowboys committed just two turnovers, setting a program record low.
At Texas, they had their second turnover just 1:13 into the game and finished with 21, matching a season-high set against Langston.
“I said it last game, that I didn't have an explanation for that,” Ford said. “But 21 is too many, way too many.”
* The Cowboys have now lost 11 straight Big 12 road games, after going winless in enemy league arenas a year ago. They also lost their eighth straight in Austin.
* Brian Williams, in his second start, scored a career-high 16 points on 7-of-12 shooting.
* One key for Texas – a 28-3 edge in bench scoring. Cezar Guerrero and Marek Soucek were scoreless, with Guerrero going 0-for-6 from the floor.
