Texas doesn’t crash the boards.  They’ll lose the rebound margin badly and lose the game.  Same story as the last few years.  Poor coaching.  Seems to be a common theme among UT men sports

That's because everyone expects another losing season. The team hasn't passed the eye test.

I was watching the game thus only posted at half time. The Horns shot well in the 1st half but went cold in a stretch in the 2nd which hurt.

Interesting stat of the game, Horns were 9-10 from the FT line (all in the 2nd half) while Georgetown was 21-28. There was one replay where Hamm was pulling down a board and Yurtseven came over his back, hammered his arm and the ball went out of bounds. The call? Hoyas ball. The Horns started getting some calls but by then the damage was done.
