ACU has won 12 of their last 13 games and leads the nation in turnovers.  They play really solid defense and will give Texas all they have tonight.  The Texas bigs must continue to dominate if Texas is going to win this game.  The line is 8 points.

I thought I wouldn't live to see UT win a 12 title again. The combination of Covid, Herman, and the Eyes of Texas has me excited for UT in tourney.


Since the NCAA moved to a 64-team field beginning in 1985, this marks the fifth time that the Longhorns have been a No. 3 seed or better and first since 2008.

I am amazed at the speed of this game. IMO, it’s beginning to take a toll on ACU.

Our guys are looking pretty poised right now. It may be the Coleman difference.

As aggressive as ACU is I'm shocked at the lack of foul calls. When Texas gets the ball in the paint and 3 ACU defenders collapse on the dribbler odds are a foul is going to be committed. That's not happening in this game.
