Isaiah Taylor cleared to play

Texas point guard Isaiah Taylor has been cleared to play Saturday against Texas Tech after missing the 11th-ranked Longhorns' past 10 games with a broken left wrist, the school announced Friday.

Taylor was averaging 15 points, four rebounds and three assists in three games this season when he suffered the injury late in a victory over Iowa at Madison Square Garden.

The Longhorns are 8-2 without Taylor -- who is arguably the team's top player. Texas lost at Kentucky and also dropped a home contest to Stanford. Javan Felix has replaced Taylor in the starting lineup.

Texas (11-2) will face Texas Tech in Lubbock on Saturday.
