“Again, a lot of new faces, so the chemistry is something we’re building,” UT head coach Karen Aston said in a press release. “I thought they looked a little more calm today. We shot the ball better and made better decisions.”

Those decisions led to a bounce-back win for Texas, which improved to 1-1 on the Italy tour. They fell to TK Hannover 52-50 in overtime on Monday.
