The Longhorns are poised for an NCAA Tournament bid in Shaka Smart's first season in Austin. Texas fans wanting to get hyped for a potential deep run in March can now relive some of the most electric moments from the season so far.
The game was never close
Kansas jumped out to a 15-0 lead very early. Simply put, shots were falling for Kansas even when the Longhorns were able to guard the paint or 3 point line. And the Longhorns could not make any shots. Kansas wins 86-56.

After losing a close game in Fort Worth earlier in January, the Longhorns were focused on ensuring the Horned Frogs didn't leave Austin with another conference win on Tuesday evening at the Frank Erwin Center..

Texas won today.
No wait, they lost. But the Longhorns did win respect today, something sorely missing from this program for almost 6 years.
The Texas Longhorns started red hot, leading by 12 at one point in the first half. The defense was strong and players were having fun. Then things took a turn in the second h...
A majority of players on the Texas team may be a result of the Rick Barnes era in Austin, but they don't have the same game mentality they did a year ago. With 6:15 to go in the game, West Virginia hits a huge 3 pointer to tie the game at 42. A Rick Barnes team very well may have folded because of poor game manageme...

Chris Flanagan’s notes & thoughts from Texas’ 74-69 win over Oklahoma State.
After struggling from 3 point range, Texas goes on a 13-2 run with big 3 pointers from Lammert, Taylor, and Mack to go up 15-6. That was big for the Longhorns after a very slow start.With 11 minutes gone in the first half, Okl...
Chris Flanagan's notes and thoughts on the Longhorns' 58-57 loss to TCU in Fort Worth (1/9/16)
1st HalfWell, it's one of the weirdest things I have seen in quite a while... A technical foul on the Longhorns for having Demarcus Holland in the starting lineup? So, even before the opening tip, Texas was down 1-0.Texas...
Texas did a decent job in the 1st half but could not close out the half, which allowed the Kansas State defense to take advantage of Texas turnovers. This led to a 12-2 run by Kansas State that gave the Wildcats a 3 point lead into the half. Again, that's nothing in the long run of a game but it definitely...

1st Half: UConn 34-33Tevin Mack is going to be one of those great college basketball players that stays for 4 years. He was just amazing in the 1st half.Inside the paint was a struggle at times for the Longhorns. When you expect a potential All-American (Cam Ridley) to be a...

Chris Flanagan's Game Notes and Thoughts
First Media TO: Texas 4 Stanford 0.
Javan Felix has 2 fouls already and is likely out for the rest of the 1st half. We need to see a heavy dose of Kerwin Roach in the rest of the half. Texas is using the pressure well. Roach made an amazing steal off the pressure...
