  1. Texas appeared to have turned a corner. A week ago, they were cutting the down the nets in Kansas City after winning the Big 12 Tournament and secured a #3 seed in the NCAA Tournament. In a blink of an eye, all momentum was lost. The Longhorns put together their worst performance of the season on Saturday, falling to 14 seed Abilene Christian in the opening round in a shocking upset. Here are some quick thoughts and takeaways from one of the lowest moments the Texas basketball program has seen under Shaka Smart: Texas backed themselves into a corner from the start. Matt Coleman picked
  2. For the first time since the creation of the Big 12, the Texas basketball program has won a conference championship. In a game that featured dominant performances from Jericho Sims and Matt Coleman, the Longhorns defeated Oklahoma State 91-86 to cut down the nets in Kansas City and give themselves plenty of momentum heading into the NCAA tournament. Here are some quick thoughts and takeaways from the best win Shaka Smart has had in his tenure at Texas. Matt Coleman was absolutely dominate all evening. The senior, who has experienced plenty of highs and lows in his Texas caree
  3. The Big 12 announced earlier this afternoon that the tonight's semifinal game between Texas and Kansas was canceled due to a positive covid test within the Kansas program. As a result of the cancellation, Texas will move on to the championship game, where they will play the winner of Oklahoma State and Baylor. The Longhorns will advance to their first championship game since 2011. Kansas has released the following statement regarding the cancellation: KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Due to a positive COVID-19 test this morning within the Kansas men’s basketball team, the Jayhawks hav
  4. Throughout the second half, there were times where it appeared Texas was ready to throw in the towel and accept an early exit from the Big 12 tournament. The turnovers, lack of energy and inconsistent play of several starters from the Longhorns had Texas Tech on the verge of running away with their third victory of the season against Shaka Smart's team. Instead, Texas found an extra gear over the final 10 minutes of the second half to secure one of their biggest victories of the season, a 67-66 win over the Red Raiders. Here are some quick thoughts and takeaways from an eventful game fill
  5. As the second half hit the halfway point, it appeared Texas was in the midst of blowing another double digit halftime lead. The Longhorns were unable to generate much of anything offensively and Oklahoma had begun to find a rhythm on both ends of the floor. Instead of collapsing and suffering another painful loss, Texas responded in a big way to gut out a 69-65 win in Norman. The win is the Longhorns 3rd in their last 4 games and keeps them in position for a good seed with the NCAA tournament 2 weeks away. A strong shooting performance during the first half allowed the Longhorns to open
  6. The calendar has officially turned to March, meaning Texas basketball is entering the most important stretch of the season. Shaka Smart's team is safely in the NCAA tournament but is hoping to continue to boost their resume in the final week of the regular season before the Big 12 tournament kicks off next week. The Longhorns were able to start their week off on the a good note, cruising to a 81-67 win at Iowa State. Despite the Cyclones 0-15 record in Big 12 play entering Tuesday's matchup, Iowa State had been showing signs of life over their previous few games. The Cyclones gave 2nd ran
  7. Despite being ranked 14th in the country and already having several quality wins on their resume, Tuesday's game against Kansas represented a fork in the road for Texas. The Longhorns were ranked in the top 5 in the country not long ago and were poised for a deep run in the NCAA tournament, but a rough stretch over the last month reached its potential breaking point on Saturday when Texas blew a huge lead against West Virginia. Shaka Smart's team took the first step in getting back on track against the Jayhawks, overcoming a large deficit of their own en route to a 75-72 overtime victory over
  8. A week ago, the Longhorns put together one of their worst performances of the season in a double overtime loss to Oklahoma State, which raised major questions about the direction Texas was trending with March quickly approaching. Fast forward a week, and Shaka Smart's team has shown signs of progress in stringing together back to back wins, the latest a 70-55 victory over TCU on Saturday afternoon at the Frank Erwin Center. Despite several poor offensive performances over the past few weeks, Shaka Smart has been adamant the Longhorns needed to improve defensively if they wanted to get bac
  9. Heading into Saturday's matchup in Stillwater, Texas had lost 3 of their last 4 games, a trend they hoped to reverse against an Oklahoma State team coming off a road loss to TCU. Instead of a bounce-back game, the questions for the Longhorns continued to mount as they turned in their worst offensive performance of the season in a 75-67 double overtime loss to the Cowboys. The Longhorns offense has had their ups and downs throughout the season, but nothing compared to the struggles they experienced on Saturday afternoon. Texas had their worst shooting performance of the Shake Smart era, co
  10. Following an extended layoff due to several games being postponed, Texas returned to action Tuesday night at the Erwin Center against Oklahoma. While it was reported the postponements of their previous two games were due to Covid-19 issues for their opponents, it was revealed Monday that the Longhorns were dealing with Covid-19 issues of their. Head Coach Shaka Smart, Courtney Ramey, Jericho Sims and Brock Cunningham all missed the matchup against the Sooners, and their absence left a huge hole as the Longhorns fell to their rival, 80-79. While missing Shaka Smart certainly hurt Texas, mi
  11. The pieces of the puzzle are beginning to fall into place as Steve Sarkisian assembles his initial staff on the 40 acres. Friday afternoon, Sarkisian announced 9 on-field hires in addition to naming his Director of Football Performance. The head coach spent some time talking about how he went about filling out his staff: “Player development, X’s and O’s and ability to recruit were our priorities with this staff. When you look at their backgrounds, there’s experience and expertise from an NFL standpoint, coaching at a very high level in the college ranks, and it’s an outstanding collection
  12. Coming off an emotional win in Morgantown over the weekend to begin Big 12 play at 4-0, Texas had plenty of momentum as they hosted Texas Tech at the Erwin Center on Wednesday night. The Longhorns came out strong, using a big first half to build up a 10-point halftime lead. The Red Raiders ultimately came alive though behind the hot shooting of Matt McClung, who made several big buckets down the stretch to allow Texas Tech to erase the deficit and hand Texas their first Big 12 loss, 79-77. The Longhorns received another huge game from their backcourt, led by Andrew Jones who took over the
  13. In his 6 season as head coach at Texas, Shaka Smart has had plenty of big wins. The Longhorns have knocked off North Carolina three times while also securing wins in several different seasons against strong Oklahoma, West Virginia and Texas Tech teams. None of those wins compare to the win he secured at Allen Fieldhouse on Saturday afternoon, blowing out 3rd ranked Kansas 84-59. The win improves the Longhorns record to 8-1 and 2-0 in Big 12 play. Texas received a huge game from their frontcourt, with Jericho Sims turning in one of his best performances of the season to go along with a str
  14. The 2020 season is set to officially come to a close on Tuesday evening in San Antonio when Texas takes on Colorado in the Alamo Bowl. The Longhorns will be playing in the Alamo Bowl for the second consecutive season and look to wrap up a disappointing season with a victory. Colorado had a surprisingly good year, going 4-1 in their shortened PAC-12 schedule that featured several cancellations. Let’s take a look at what to expect from the Buffaloes: Offense Former head coach Mel Tucker was not shy about his preference to win games by running the ball and playing great defense. Current
  15. Despite a ton of outside noise surrounding the football program, Texas put together one of their best performances of the season in a 69-31 route of Kansas State. The win improves the Longhorns record to 6-3 on the year and 5-3 in conference play. Here are some quick thoughts and takeaways from a thorough beatdown in Manhattan. Today will be remembered as the coming out party for freshman RB Bijan Robinson. The freshman appeared to be building up to this moment considering his strong performances the last few games, but I don't think anyone expected what he put on display today. Robins
