  1. The Horns played an overall atrocious game tonight. It’s rather mind blowing that Shaka Smart keeps sticking to a game plan that shoots 33% from the floor and 50% on free throws. Here are the final stats: Kerwin Roach II: 2/12, 7 1/7 3-pt FGs D. Osetkowski: 4/15, 9 pts, 17 reb J. Sims: 6/9, 16 pts, 8 reb
  2. Texas (7-3) will return to the court tonight when they host Tennessee State at the Frank Erwin Center. The Longhorns are coming off a 75-60 win over Louisiana Tech just 2 days ago. Shaka Smart will again be without the services of his leading scorer, Andrew Jones, who is still nursing a right wrist injury. Fellow guard Eric Davis Jr. is also dealing with a right wrist injury of his own, and is considered questionable for tonight’s contest after missing Saturday’s game. Tennessee State comes to Austin with a 5-4 record on the season. The Tigers were dismantled by Kansas in their opening game of the season, 92-56, and later dropped an overtime game to Lipscomb, whom the Longhorns beat 80-57 earlier this season. Guard Delano Spencer will serve as the Tiger’s main scoring option. Spencer is averaging 15.7 points per game while shooting 42.4% from three and 88.2% from the free throw line. The Tigers will deploy some height and length down low in the form of 6’9″ forwards Christian Mekowulu and Ken’Darrius Hamilton. Mekowulu is averaging nearly a double-double per game this season (11.4 points and 9.6 rebounds). Tennessee State has struggled putting up points at times, including a 54-point output in their last game – a 64-54 loss to North Carolina A&T. Following the win over Louisiana Tech, Shaka Smart emphasized how much the team is working on getting the ball to the big men and how he wants to continue to see his players prioritize getting the ball inside the paint to Mo Bamba, Dylan Osetkowski and Jericho Simms. Despite being in foul trouble for most of the game against Louisiana Tech, Bamba collected 14 points and 9 rebounds. If Texas is without the services of Eric Davis, expect Jacob Young to see extended minutes. Young played a season high 27 minutes on Saturday, contributing 10 points and 3 assistants. The game will tip off at 8 PM CST and will be broadcast on ESPN2.
  3. Texas (4-2) vs. Florida A&M (1-7) Date: Wednesday, November 29, 2017 Time: 7:00 PM tip Venue: Frank Erwin Center Location: Austin, TX Television: Longhorn Network The Texas Longhorns (4-2) will face the Florida A&M Rattlers (1-7) in the first-ever meeting between the two teams on Wednesday night at the Frank Erwin Center in Austin. The Longhorns are looking to find the win column again after going 1-2 at the PK80-Phil Knight Invitational in Portland, Oregon. Texas defeated Butler in the opening round but fell to top-ranked Duke and a Top-15 ranked Gonzaga team, both in overtime on Friday and Sunday, respectively. Florida A&M’s lone win on the season came against Division II school Albany State on November 20th. Senior guard Marcus Barham leads the Rattlers in scoring, averaging 16 points per game, while senior forward Desmond Williams averages 13 points per game and 5 rebounds. The Rattlers lost on Sunday to Stephen F. Austin State University 79-63, with Barham scoring 26 points, which included five-3 pointers and six rebounds. Williams contributed 14 points in the loss to the Lumberjacks. Freshman Mo Bamba is off to a fast start in his early career at Texas, averaging 10.4 points and 10 rebounds per game. Tulane transfer Dylan Osetkowski has made an immediate impact in the scoring and rebound department for Shaka Smart, averaging 12.7 points and 8 rebounds per game. Sophmore Andrew Jones leads Texas in scoring with 14.8 points per game. Texas will celebrate 40 years of the Frank Erwin Center at Wednesday’s game. The Longhorns opened the building on November 29, 1977 with an 83-76 win against Oklahoma.

  6. https://www.wsj.com/articles/arrests-expected-in-probe-of-alleged-bribery-kickbacks-at-college-basketball-programs-1506431065 Bribery, Kickbacks Alleged at Top NCAA College Basketball Programs Federal charges center on alleged scheme in which agents, financial advisers and apparel executives bribed college coaches to direct players to them Chuck Person is a basketball coach with Auburn University. PHOTO: ICON SPORTSWIRE/ASSOCIATED PRESS By Rebecca Davis O’Brien Updated Sept. 26, 2017 10:45 a.m. ET Federal authorities brought fraud charges against coaches at some of the nation’s premier college-basketball programs, including the University of Arizona and the University of Southern California, following a probe of alleged corruption in college sports. Prosecutors from the Manhattan U.S. Attorney’s Office unsealed three separate criminal complaints Tuesday, alleging schemes in which agents, financial advisers and apparel executives bribed college coaches to direct players to them. Among those charged were an executive from Adidas, a financial adviser and a sports agent. Chuck Person, a former star with the National Basketball Association who works as an associate coach for the men’s basketball team at Auburn, his alma mater, was charged with accepting tens of thousands of dollars in exchange for steering student-athletes to a financial adviser. In one alleged scheme, Emanuel Richardson, an assistant coach at the University of Arizona, Anthony Bland, a coach at the University of Southern California, and Lamont Evans, an associate coach at Oklahoma State University, were charged with accepting cash bribes from a sports agent and a financial adviser. Mr. Evans, until March, coached at the University of South Carolina, and the charges stem from his work there. None of schools allegedly involved immediately returned requests for comment. In another alleged scheme, James “Jim” Gatto—identified in the complaint as a basketball marketing executive at a global athletic company—worked with another sports-marketing executive to funnel hundreds of thousands of dollars from Mr. Gatto’s employer to high-school basketball players and/or their families in exchange for the players’ commitment to play for NCAA schools sponsored by the company. Jim Gatto is the director of basketball global sports marketing at Adidas, according to his LinkedIn profile. “Today, we became aware that federal investigators arrested an Adidas employee,” said an Adidas spokesman. ”We are learning more about the situation. We’re unaware of any misconduct and will fully cooperate with authorities to understand more.” Mr. Gatto is accused of getting $100,000 to a player so that he would attend a university that has an apparel contract with Adidas.

    With one game remaining, Texas is tied for DEAD LAST in the Big 12 with OU. Of course, we have one more loss on our record than they have overall. We get Baylor in two days. I'm not confident we'll upset the Bears. Meanwhile, OU will have a legitimate shot at beating TCU on the same day, thus, giving us sole possession of last place. I hope we don't have to see this again.
  21. The wife has talked me in to going to Kansas City for the Big 12 tournament. Anyone have two tickets they are looking to sell?
  22. Story via Will Baizer With 8 seconds left in the game and down by 2 to the Georgia Bulldogs, the Longhorns had one last shot to tie or win the game. Coming out of a timeout, the ball gets in-bounded to Kerwin Roach. Roach drives the ball down the court with time winding down. 5 seconds left and Roach dishes it to Allen who grabs the ball 10 feet away from the hook in the center of the court. 1 second left. Allen throws up the hook shot. It's on target. It's got the right power. It hits the front of the rim, rolls to the back of the rim... but rattles back over the front of the rim. Georgia rebounds and wins this contest in the SEC/Big 12 Challenge. It's been one of those seasons. Texas is now 2-6 in game decided by 3 points or less and 0-6 on the road. And it was déjà vu for Longhorn fans as they watched another 10 point lead slip out of the hands of the 7th youngest team in the nation (344/351). The Longhorns went into the half with a lead of 32-23 and came out of it without scoring another point for the first 3 minutes of the 2nd half. However, the win really came off the heels of another scoreless run for the Longhorns starting with 7 minutes left in the 2nd half where UGA went on an 8-0 run, Shaq Cleare fouled out, and left Texas in a 7 point deficit they would never be able to claw their way out of. The Longhorns just could not slow down the Bulldogs to veteran players PG J.J. Frazier who went for 14 PTS, 3 AST and Yante Maten who went for 21 PTS and 7 REB. Together they contributed to a vast majority of the offensive production against the Longhorns and came in the clutch for UGA when Texas made it with in 1 point of tying the game. It was a day of struggles for the big men down low as James Banks, Shaq Cleare, and Jarrett Allen got into foul trouble early in the game and were out-worked by the big men of the Bulldogs. Georgia doesn't shoot well from outside (shot 16.7% vs Texas), but the Longhorns let the Bulldogs get too many open looks from inside the arc. Cleare had a tremendous game scoring 8 points before being taken out by a fifth foul. James Banks played well, but continues to struggle on the offensive side of the court. Jarrett Allen borrowed a few points from the game against Kansas as he continued to struggle only grabbing 4 points and 5 defensive rebounds. His struggles are a continuation of the Oklahoma game, where he could not establish himself down low and went 2-7 shooting. The guards showed up in Athens, GA, but also didn't take great care of the ball. Andrew Jones, Kerwin Roach, and Eric Davis each broke double digits in scoring. Andrew Jones had his best game of his Texas career coming off his previous best game of his career (against Oklahoma). He scored 16 points, grabbed 4 boards, and had 8 assists. This was the type of production Shaka was hoping for... minus his 6 turnovers. Kerwin Roach played tremendous defense (again), scored 10 points and grabbed 7 rebounds... but he also had 4 fouls and gave the ball away thrice. Eric Davis is normalizing into the shooter he was last season, knocking down 2 threes and grabbing 11 points on the game. Dating back to last season, the Longhorns have now lost 19 of their last 28 games. But it was just another game of ups and downs where the Longhorns started off well, came to screeching halts, stayed stagnant for 3-5 minutes of game play, and lost a close game. Texas is so close. Sunshine is just over this hill if the Longhorns would stop stepping on their own feet, tripping, and rolling all the way back down to the bottom of the hill.

  24. AUSTIN-- Although they sit last in the Big 12 rankings, the Texas men's basketball team had a glimmer of hope last night. The Longhorn's five-game losing streak was broken in a last second three-pointert against the Oklahoma Sooners. That's right, there was redemption on the Red River. In a game that seemed never ending, Texas defeated Oklahoma in the last second, 84-83. With the second largest at-home crowd this season, Texas was eager to put on a show. Moves were made by the Longhorns in the very beginning, with Shaquille Cleare, Eric Davis Jr. and Jarrett Allen scoring seven points within the first two minutes of the game. The Sooners quickly put up four points to challenge Texas, but the energy inside the Erwin center seemed to fuel the Longhorn's play. The first half belonged to the Longhorns, up until the last 8 minutes when OU took the lead, 26-24. Texas quickly responded, tying the game 26-26 following two made free throws by James Banks. Texas led the Sooners going into the second half, 41-39. The second half was a back-and-forth battle between the two teams, and the Longhorns kept the lead until the last minute of the game, when OU squeezed ahead 80-78. The Sooners continued to build their lead, with the Longhorns close behind. With ten seconds left, OU led 83-81. The Sooner's Kameron McGusty missed a free throw, giving freshman Andrew Jones the chance to steal the ball. Two seconds until the buzzer, and Jones shoots for the three. And it was good. With 1.8 seconds, Texas was in the lead, and the Sooners did not have enough time to respond to the shot. With a final score of 84-83, the Horns walked away victorious for the first time since their win against Oklahoma State on January 4. UP NEXT The Longhorns head to Georgia this weekend for the SEC, Big 12 Challenge. The game will be in ESPN Saturday at 3:00 pm. Photo courtesy to @TexasMBB
  25. As Oklahoma's Khadeem Lattin pulled in the defensive rebound off a Kerwin Roach missed layup and hit a free throw to extend the Sooners' lead to 5 with 17 seconds to play in the game, Texas fans angrily left the Frank Erwin Center feeling a sense of Déjà vu with Texas' capability to pull meltdowns out of thin air. However, when Eric Davis Jr. sunk a three with 11 seconds left to cut the lead back to 2, Longhorn fans stopped in their tracks, and rerouted to the TV around the concession stands. The score was 81-83, Sooners lead. Texas quickly fouls Oklahoma's Kameron McGusty, a career 82.9% free throw shooter. McGusty misses the front end of the free throws. If they make one, Texas needs a 3 to tie and go to overtime. McGusty misses the second free throw. Two will tie the game. Andrew Jones grabs the defensive rebound. 10 seconds left. He dribbles the ball down the court. Longhorn fans and announcers are screaming, go for the hoop. 7 seconds left. Andrew Jones dribbles to the right side of the arc. 4 seconds left. Andrew Jones throws up a rainbow from 26 feet away. Longhorn fans simultaneously yell, "NO!" Swish. 1.8 seconds left. "When it left my hand, it felt real good," said Jones That's the tail of the last 19 seconds of the Longhorns wild 84-83 win over their Red River Rival, the Oklahoma Sooners, on Monday night. However, there was a game before those final 19 seconds. In fact, Texas was in control for the majority of the contest and even led by double digits five different times during the second half. With 5 minutes left in the game, Kendall Yancy fouled out and Texas was down to 7 scholarship players. During those last 5 minutes of the game, Texas went into meltdown mode as they allowed the Sooners to outscore them 16-5 with the help of 3 costly turnovers and a lot of missed shots. Before this, the team was on fire. They started off both halves with immense energy, jumping out to a 9 point lead in the first half before going on a stretch of in which they let the Sooners back in the game. In the second half the Longhorns started off with an 10-1 run to set the tone. But sloppy play from both teams allowed Oklahoma to claw right back into the game over and over again. Shaq Cleare had a monster game and was Shaka Smart's player of the game. He tallied a career high 23 points and 8 rebounds (5 offensive). He could not be stopped as he overpowered Oklahoma's Lattin and Kristian Doolittle (who also had 29 points). He had the magic touch as it just seemed as if everything he shot went in. Eric Davis Jr. was right behind him, with his own career high of 18 points and shooting 5-10 from 3-point land including the clutch three with 11 seconds left to give the Longhorns a shot of hope. Not to mention the hero of the game, Andrew Jones, went off for 16 points with a pair of dunks, 3 crucial steals, and 8 rebounds. Fellow SG/PG Kerwin Roach also had himself a game with 8 assists and 11 points. Even Jarrett Allen had himself a few points, as he posted his 8th double-double of the year. Allen struggled from the floor, shooting 3-13 and being doubled up on the entire second half, Allen still managed to pick up 10 points and 12 rebounds. Despite very sloppy play by both teams, Texas had control of this game most of the time and should have won with ease. Time and time again the Longhorns will follow up an amazing stretch of plays with lackluster play filled with mistakes, which allows the other team to claw their way back in. Fortunately for the Longhorns, the blend of a clutch play mixed with luck and a lot of skill saved them from dropping a 10-point lead to their rivals and their 6th straight loss. "We finally ended our drought and beat OU," Andrew Jones said as the Longhorns move to 2-5 in games decided by 3 points or less. It was ugly and Texas almost lost, but the fan next to me said it best. "Any game where Texas beats Oklahoma is a good game."
