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...

Myles Turner: Texas Basketball’s rising star

The college men’s basketball season is about halfway through, and that makes this a good time to look back and reflect on #17 Texas Basketball’s season so far. With a record of 14-4 (3-2 Big-12) the Longhorns sit fifth in arguably the strongest conference in college basketball. The Longhorn’s have a talented and deep roster that features many big men who harass teams on the...

Texas Basketball beats West Virginia, there’s no time to celebrate

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...

Make or break time for Texas Basketball in strong Big-12

There have been a few bumps in the road for this Texas Basketball team that was once ranked sixth in the nation. The Big-12 has proven to be a very competitive conference, as I predicted. Texas are off to a 1-2 start in Big-12 play (12-4 overall). Since their last defeat at the hands of Oklahoma State the Longhorns have had a week to think and prepare for the challenges ahead.

Takeaways from Texas Basketball’s eye opening loss to Oklahoma

For Texas Basketball this was an ugly loss at home, #16 Oklahoma came into the Frank Erwin Center and dominated the Longhorns 70-49.

Texas-Oklahoma St. Preview

Texas coach Rick Barnes is confident his 10th-ranked Longhorns are capable of bouncing back from an embarrassing performance. However, that may not be so easy with a visit Saturday to an Oklahoma State team coming off a solid defensive showing against one of the nation's top offenses. Texas (12-3, 1-1 Big 12) looked completely overwhelmed in Monday's 70-49 home loss to No. 16 Oklahoma...

Texas Basketball earns first Big 12 win, looks ahead to #18 Oklahoma

Texas Basketball welcomed back starting guard Isaiah Taylor with a 70-61 win yesterday at Texas Tech. Though the  scoreline would suggest the game was relatively close, the Longhorns were in cruise control after halftime. Leading by as many as 20 points in the second half, the Longhorns took their foot off the gas and left the back door open for Texas Tech. It was also the Lammert...

Texas-Texas Tech Preview

The addition of highly touted freshman Myles Turner would appear to give Texas a promising chance to claim its first Big 12 regular-season title since 2007-08 and break one rival's lengthy string of championships. The 11th-ranked Longhorns, though, might need a little something extra, and that could come with Isaiah Taylor's return from injury in Saturday's conference opener at Texas...

Five things we learned from Texas Basketball’s loss to Stanford

It wasn’t the merriest Christmas for the Longhorns who had to celebrate the holiday following their second loss of the season, and worse yet their opponent entered the contest unranked.
