  1. In this week's edition of Taking Sides, Sean and I debate who gets the biggest benefit from Myles Turner's commitment.
  2. Shaunsters posted the article on the home page of the site but here it is for message board consumption...... Exciting rumor I heard this week related to the Texas basketball program and had 2 trusted sources confirm it to me… Buzz Williams and Billy Donovan have both let (Steve) Patterson or the people around Patterson know that when he’s ready to make a decision on the coaching position, each wants to be let known. Wait, there’s more… Another surprise name (I originally said no way to) has surfaced again on the radar (much like the Saban situation behind the scenes) . This would most
  3. It appears he took a page out of the Cayleb Jones handbook... Daniel Gibson turns himself in on battery charge Gibson is a free agent after playing 7 seasons for Cleveland.
  4. Hard to believe DJ has been in the NBA for 5 years now already...... Former Texas point guard DJ Augustin signed a deal to play basketball with the Toronto Raptors. He is lights out from the stripe and will make a nice addition at the point for Toronto. Career stats on Augustin: [TABLE=class: sortable row_summable stats_table] [TR] [TH=class: tooltip sort_default_asc, align: center]Season[/TH] [TH=class: tooltip sort_default_asc, align: center]Age[/TH] [TH=class: tooltip sort_default_asc, align: left]Tm[/TH] [TH=class: tooltip sort_default_asc, align: left]Lg[/TH]
  5. We didn't make the NCAA Tournament this season but one thing is for sure: our players are not stupid. Today the Longhorn basketball team was awarded a Team Academic Excellence Award by the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC). What is this award you ask? It is given as recognition to teams that earned a cumulative 3.0 or better grade point average. Congrats to the Longhorn Basketball team for the honor but.................. personally I would have rather made the NCAA tournament. Stop studying so much and play some damn basketball!
  6. 4th member of the 2013 class is in the books for Rick Barnes. Well, not in the books yet but a verbal commitment....Walker is from Detroit (Pershing) and looks like he could be a nice pickup for the Horns. Walker is a 3-star shooting guard that stands 6-5 and weighs 175 lbs. Walker had offers from Iowa State, USC and Providence.
  7. Myck announced this morning that he will give up his two years of remaining eligibility with Rick Barnes and Texas and will declare himself eligible for the NBA draft. Nobody should be surprised - and I think it is a good decision for the kid. He is projected to be a late first round/early second round pick and it is probably hard for him to shun the thought of first-round NBA dollars. We lost a lot already with transfers and now it is up to Felix to carry the PG torch for us next season.
  8. Last night we learned that in addition to losing Forward Jaylen Bond to a transfer, the Texas Men's Basketball team will also be losing Shooting Guard Sheldon McClellan as well, as he looks to transfer away from UT. McClellan's transfer should be seen as a red-flag, as he was the team's leading scorer for much of the season until Myck Kabongo returned. McClellan finished the season as the team's second leading scorer and best free-throw shooter, percentage wise. But towards the end of the season, he found himself in the notorious dog-house with Rick Barnes and decided to seek a place that
  9. Shooting Guard Demarcus Croaker from Jones High School in Orlando, FL has committed to play basketball at The University of Texas. Croaker is 6-4, 175 lbs and is lightning quick with a fantastic touch on the ball and good range. Will be interesting to see how he is used by Barnes at Texas. He is a versatile player to say the least. Highlight tape on Croaker:
  10. Texas was embarrased tonight in Lawrence, to put it lightly, and they lose 73-47 to the Jayhawks. Texas shot just 21.8% , KU shot 46.4%. Now for the whopper - LOnghorns went 2-21 from the 3 point line. Yes, you read it right, 2-21 (9.5%). KU was 7-18 (38.9%). It was a terrible shooting night for the Longhorns and Myck Kabongo led the team with 13 points. Of the KU starting 5, all but one missed scoring double digits. The Longhorns dropped to 3-9 in Big 12 play & 11-14 on the season. All the optimism about Texas making a run and potentially making the NCAA tourney?
  11. When you watch the Texas basketball team play you see flashes of a team that could be pretty good. But then you see the Longhorns fall back to earth and struggle in situations that ultimately lead to losses. 0-4 in Big 12 play, Texas is really having a tough time finishing games and finding an identity that will lead to wins. The struggles for Texas are a combination of problems, largely related to youth and inexperience. The team cannot keep it together long enough to pull out wins in games where they have still been in it in the very end. But no matter how they lose, each time I watch Texas
  12. Texas vs. Michigan State Time: 1:00 pm CST TV: ESPN2 Texas could do itself a ton of help by winning a big road game today. Myck has been freed, time to do work. A quote from Spartans head coach Tom Izzo about the upcoming game: HOOK 'EM HORNS!
  13. As the Longhorns finish this game with 59.6 seconds left in this game, Yahoo's Pat Forde reports that Myck Kabongo will be suspended for the entire season for improper benefits received for a trip he took to Cleveland earlier this year. They took their sweet ass time and now Javan Felix will be the point guard of the future for this Texas basketball team. The NCAA sucks.
  14. It is borderline absurdity that the NCAA has not done anything on the Kabongo ruling yet. Another reason why the NCAA is a JOKE! Even Bilas agrees with me... [tweet]278549190374739968[/tweet]
  15. Remember these guys? Two great former Longhorn hoopsters Kris Clack and Chris Mimh are graduating this month from THE University of Texas. Hats off to these cats for living life and having careers but coming back to UT to get the degree! HOOK 'EM HORNS!
  16. Another game that Texas had a great shot at winning and they couldn't close strong. Chapman was a stud and if we can get that kind of play from him every game we would be a much better team. J'Covan Brown didn't get going until the second half and we only shot 34% from the floor. Kabaongo was erratic again today and had 3 turnovers. He needs to get a handle on those... Notable stats: *The Texas bench outscored the Kansas bench 21-5 *Texas went 16-17 from the free throw line (94.1%) *Horns went 8-19 from the 3-point line Brown needs to get more out of his players, without ques
  17. This game means a lot for Texas. A road win over a highly rated Mizzou team would go a long way on the tournament resume. They will have to play composed and error free. Let's do it boys!
  18. Hey guys, great forum here! Glad it started. My thoughts on the Horns basketball season is thhat it was a good regular season with a fizzle out toward the end. I am ambivalent about Rick Barnes and his ability to get the job done. Are our stars coming back next year? That will be the only hope for a powerful team next year.
