  1. The Texas Longhorns are headed into the Big 12 Tournament with a three game win-streak, thanks to three Big 12 road victories last week. Ranked 15th, Texas (17-7, 11-6) capped the regular season by defeating the TCU Horned Frogs 76-64 on Sunday in Fort Worth. Monday's release of the new AP Top 25 Poll saw the Longhorns jump two spots to #13. The Big 12 Conference now includes 7 teams ranked in the poll. Texas, as a 3-seed, is one of eight teams which will have a first round bye in Kansas City next week as the conference tournament gets underway. The Longhorns wi
  2. 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
  3. With three games left on the regular season schedule, the Longhorns will play each of them on the road, within a six-day period beginning Tuesday night in Ames, Iowa. Texas (14-7, 8-6 Big 12) will kick off the stretch by facing the Iowa State Cyclones (2-18, 0-15 Big 12) at Hilton Coliseum in hopes of securing a win and improving on-court consistency and team play. Texas is 4-6 over their last ten games and has struggled to finish strong in most of those games. They pulled out a 78-72 win over Iowa State in Austin on January 5th, but that shouldn't serve as too much of an accomplishment
  4. 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
  5. The Texas Longhorns (14-7, 8-6) dropped one spot to #15 in the newly released AP Top 25 Poll after a home win against Kansas and a road loss to Texas Tech last week. With 3 regular season games left, all road games, the Longhorns are in need of a strong finish to solidify favorable seeding in the NCAA Tournament. Texas will head to Ames Iowa for a Tuesday matchup against the Cyclones, followed by a Thursday game in Norman and a Sunday game against TCU in Fort Worth. The Big 12 Tournament gets underway from March 10-13 at the T-Mobile Center in Kansas City, Missouri. Select
  6. Matt Coleman scored ten points and had six assists in the Longhorns' 68-59 loss to the Red Raiders on Saturday in Lubbock. Coleman's three-pointer at the halftime buzzer tied the game at 33-33, sending Texas into the locker room with momentum for the second half. That momentum quickly subsided with the start of the second half. The Longhorns missed their first 11 field goals (seven of which were three-pointers) allowing Texas Tech to build a 52-39 lead. Brock Cunningham's three-pointer at the 11:02 mark gave Texas their first bucket of the half, and the Longhorns would eventually narrow
  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. It's Senior Night at the Frank Erwin Center as Texas hosts Kansas. The Longhorns dismantled the Jayhawks earlier this season in Lawrence with an 84-59 win. After a strong start, Shaka Smart's team has lost four of their last six. The Big 12 Conference Tournament looms as does the NCAA Tournament, and the Longhorns are in desperate need of a win to somewhat right the ship. The Longhorns will make up previously postponed games (due to COVID-19) the week of March 1-7. Texas will make up the following games, all on the road, on these dates: Tuesday, March 2 - Texas @ Iowa State Thu
  9. The Texas vs. Iowa State Basketball Game scheduled for Wednesday, January 20th in Ames has been postponed due to COVID issues on the Iowa State side. The game will be rescheduled, and Texas will next take the court on Saturday, January 23rd against TCU in Fort Worth.
  10. The Longhorns look to continue their winning ways as they travel to Morgantown to face a ranked Mountaineer team on Saturday. Texas notched their third Big 12 victory on Tuesday, defeating Iowa State in Austin 78-72. West Virginia defeated Oklahoma State 87-84 in Stillwater to even their Big 12 record at 2-2. What: #4 Texas Longhorns (9-1, 3-0) vs. West Virginia Mountaineers (9-3, 2-2) When: Saturday, January 9, 2021 Time: 12:00 NOON Venue: WVU Coliseum Location: Morgantown, WV Television: ESPN Last meeting between these two teams: Texas defeated Wes
  11. 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
  12. The #8 Longhorns and #3 Jayhawks will tipoff at 11:00 AM at Allen Fieldhouse today on ESPN2. The trip to Lawrence marks the first true road game for the Longhorns, who did post a 3-0 record in Asheville, NC in the Maui Invitational. Texas has beaten Kansas just 9 times in 44 games and lost their last matchup in Lawrence 69-58 last year.
  13. BY AUSTIN STEVENS Just when we thought Texas was going to get hot again as they did in their first five games, Iowa State and the crowd in Ames had other plans. The game began with Iowa State jumping out to a lead, although ESPN2 somehow found the end of the Sooners game to be worthwhile in taking away the first 4 minutes of the game. From that point on, Texas was playing catch up. Texas tended to use almost all of the shot clock early in the game, which was contributed to their early deficit. The Longhorns went down by as many as 13 points (22-9) with 8:50 left in the first half. P
  14. BY AUSTIN STEVENS After a big win against No. 11 Kansas, the 12-9 Longhorns are looking to capitalize on another ranked opponent in Iowa State this Saturday. After a 6-game skid of going 1-5, the Longhorns' huge win against Kansas will help their résumé for the NCAA tournament. With a road record of 1-4, Texas has the perfect opportunity to make a statement to the entire conference. For the Texas offense, the key will be getting more inside penetration from Dylan Osetkowski and Jaxson Hayes, as well as better looks for Kerwin Roach. For the defense, they will have to figure out how to st
  15. Texas tried to make this one interesting in the end, but no dice. The Horns had a chance with 12 seconds left, and true to form had an ugly possession end in an off balance three from Mitrou-Long hit the top of the backboard. Texas didn’t have great effort/energy in this game. It was apparent in the first half when Courtney Ramey failed to box out and gave up a put back slam on a missed three-pointer by TCU. Roach and Hayes gave solid efforts, but it wasn’t enough in the end. Texas was playing from behind all game, and a lack of defensive rebounds and offensive production led to th
  16. After a very strong start in the first half, Texas gave way a bit in the second but held on to defeat a very sound Sooner squad. As usual, the second half woes on offense were created by Texas’ lack of production from beyond the arc. The Longhorns shot a measly 22% from 3 in the game, but made them count late when Jase Febres hit from downtown to give Texas a 73-69 lead. The Longhorns let Oklahoma stay in the game after Matt Coleman and Jaxson Hayes missed some important free throws, but ultimately were able to hold on for a three-point victory. Speaking of free throws, Texas has improve
  17. BY JAMESON MCCAUSLAND Texas basketball opened Big 12 conference play with a key win on Wednesday night, cruising past Kansas State 67-47 in Manhattan. The Longhorns turned in several rocky performances en route to a 8-4 non conference record to open the season, but managed to put together one of their best performances of the season against the Wildcats. Texas was led by sophomore Jase Febres, who went 7 of 9 from deep and poured in a team high 23 points off the bench. Kerwin Roach was the only other Longhorn player to reach double figures with 10 points to go along with 4 assists.
  18. 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
  19. 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 ga
  20. 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 over
  21. Didn’t see one posted yet, and Horns are up 27-20, 7:08 left in 1st Half. Grayson Allen has 3 fouls early. Horns looking pretty good against the #1 Blue Devils.

  23. Four star forward out of Cibolo Steele has committed to Texas. 2nd ranked player in the state and 40th in the nation. Another great pickup for Shaka Smart. https://twitter.com/gerald_liddell/status/895768215330148353 http://247sports.com/Player/Gerald-Liddell-85995
  24. Shaka Smart gets some good news this afternoon, as Texas lands four star Austin Westlake small forward Brock Cunningham. https://twitter.com/brockolli13/status/893531785430171649 https://twitter.com/jeffborzello/status/893529842158882816 http://247sports.com/Player/Brock-Cunningham-46038068
