WATCH: Texas Forward Jonathan Holmes Ejected for Throwing Elbow at West Virginia's Devin Williams

This is a perfect example of why it is always a bad idea to retaliate. West Virginia's Devin Williams gives Texas' Jonathan Holmes a good shove and nearly knocks him over so what does Holmes do? He throws a well-deserved elbow in retaliation, but who gets caught and ejected from the game? Holmes.Is it right? Absolutley. He broke a rule that warrants an ejection, but it wouldn't have...

Texas Basketball: Live and in person

Thanks to a connection through my Father I was able to witness Texas Basketball’s 85-77 defeat to #14 Iowa State from the 18th row! The game was intense, the Texas fans were passionate and rowdy in a good way. There was a large contingent of Iowa State fans who broke out the “let’s go cyclones” chant in the closing stages of the contest. All in all it was a good experience...

Rick Barnes’ seat as Texas Basketball coach should be hot

Texas Basketball’s season is coming to a disappointing end. What started as an optimistic campaign with hope is ending with defeat and average play. This situation begs the question, how much more mediocrity and lackluster basketball will Texas athletic director Steve Patterson put up with?

Texas Basketball: seeing success with three guards starting

The Longhorns celebrated their head coach Rick Barnes as he earned his 600th career victory last Wednesday in a 66-43 drubbing against TCU. This career milestone was reached despite using another different starting line up, battling injuries, and facing tough opposition in the Big-12. TCU has been somewhat of a punching bag in the Big-12 so it is no surprise Texas Basketball was...

It may seem kind of strange, but from time to time players actually do miss dunks. Sometimes the end result is kind of funny. Other times it can still leave you impressed with the player. Take this missed dunk by Texas big man Cameron Ridley Wednesday night against TCU. He didn't score, but it is still  pretty clear that the 6'9' 285 pounder is a powerful dude.He must be to almost...

Texas-Baylor Preview

Baylor might not be the best shooting team in the Big 12, but it typically makes up for that with second chances. That's not an area in which Texas tends to give much away. The conference's top rebounding teams square off Saturday night in Waco, and the loser will have a hole to dig out of in the league as the calendar turns to February. The 19th-ranked Longhorns (14-6, 3-4) lead...

Wild rally falls short, No. 19 Texas loses at Iowa St

With less than 12 minutes left, Texas was staring at a 21-point deficit and the very strong possibility of a losing record in the Big 12. The Longhorns still lost, and they still fell below .500 in league play. They also nearly pulled off one of the greatest comebacks in school history. Georges Niang scored 19 points, Bryce Dejean-Jones had 18 and 15th-ranked Iowa State held off...

Texas Basketball: No time to reflect on loss, #9 Iowa State looms

#17 Texas Basketball’s size and strength was no match for #11 Kansas Jayhawks’ precise and efficient offense. The Jayhawks were nearly perfect handling the ball and they handed Texas a 75-62 defeat in Austin. Rick Barnes has been favoring the zone defense using it almost exclusively in victories against TCU and West Virginia, and Bill Self quickly figured out its weaknesses and...

Texas Longhorns Center Cameron Ridley Shows Off Some Power Against West Virginia

Texas Longhorns center Cameron Ridley is a very big man (6'9' and 285 pounds). He is the kind of man that football coaches have probably tried to recruit off of the basketball team each and every season. It will not be surprising if NFL coaches invite him in to camp (assuming the NBA is not in his future). Could you imagine your favorite team with a big, powerful tight end like him...
