  1. Longhorns land their top coaching target in Texas Tech's Chris Beard less than a week after the job became vacant The University of Texas has hired Texas Tech's Chris Beard as its next basketball coach, according to Stadium's Jeff Goodman. The hiring of Beard comes less than a week after former UT head coach Shaka Smart left Austin and accepted the same position at Marquette. Smart's decision to move to Marquette saved the university $7.1 million in buyout money on Smart's contract that spanned through the 2023 season. Beard, a Texas alumnus, spent the last five seasons in
  2. Marvin Gentry-USA TODAY Sports Since becoming the head basketball coach at the University of Texas on April 1st, Chris Beard has leaned heavily on the transfer portal to build his future roster. With the departure of Kai Jones who declared for the NBA Draft and the uncertainty of a return from Greg Brown III, Jericho Sims, Matt Coleman and Courtney Ramey, Beard is wasting no time in putting together the pieces to field a dominant product on the hardwood next season. Vanderbilt forward Dylan Disu entered the transfer portal last week and didn't stay on the market long, announcing his

Highlights: Beard and Texas Athletic Director Chris Del Conte met at a Comfort Inn in Plainview, Texas and discussed the vision for Texas Basketball over Egg McMuffins from McDonald's. A handful of hours later Beard and Del Conte had worked out a 7-year, $35 million deal to make Beard the 25th head basketball coach at Texas. Beard was always Del Conte's #1 candidate, commented on Beard's character as a human being as Beard was visibly e

  5. Photo: Ricardo B. Brazziell via Imagn Content Services, LLC In six seasons as head coach of the Texas Basketball program, Shaka Smart won an NIT Championship and a recent Big 12 Tournament Championship. He's also taken the 'Horns to the Big Dance three times in the six seasons. All three appearances ended with first round losses to Northern Iowa, Nevada, and Abilene Christian University. Basketball will always play second fiddle to football at Texas, but a program that recruits well and has good coaches that develop players should make appearances in the NCAA Tournament more ofte

  8. The Texas basketball program received good news Thursday morning when it was announced that Guard Kerwin Roach would be withdrawing his name from the NBA Draft and returning to school for his senior season. Roach averaged 12.3 points and 3.6 assist during his junior season in 2017, shooting 43.8% from the field and 36.4% from beyond the arc. The return of Roach means Texas will only lose one player to the draft, freshman Mo Bamba.

  10. After a one year absence, 10 seed Texas is set to return to the NCAA tournament on Friday against 7 seed Nevada. This will be the Longhorn’s second tournament appearance under third year head coach Shaka Smart, with the first appearance in 2016 ending with a 1st round exit to Northern Iowa on a half-court shot at the buzzer. Nevada returns to the tournament for the second consecutive season, bowing out in the first round last year to Iowa State, 84-73. On the court, the Wolf Pack are led by the Caleb and Cody Martin.

  18. Solid info from Chris Flanagan on the meaning of Myles Turner's commitment.
  19. 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
  20. It appears Texas and the Bayou Bengals will face one another as part of a basketball series of games at American Airlines Arena in Dallas on November 8th. No official confirmation yet but it is all but done. Should be a good game. I have always wondered why Texas and LSU never played more in basketball or football. Hell, hold the games in Houston. Both schools have massive fan bases in H-town.
  21. 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:
  22. Myck was freed and Rick Barnes must be praying that he can provide this team with a spark. Iowa State has a good team and Texas will need to play well to pull of the win. Expectations for Kabongo to save the season should be quelled because it ain't happening folks. We can only hope to save face and finish the season strong. Let's Hook the Clones.
  23. After being suspended for 23 games, Myck Kabongo will see his first action of the season and start Wednesday vs. Iowa State. Today Kabongo released a statement commenting on his suspension and the remaining games: Statement from University of Texas sophomore guard Myck Kabongo - TexasSports.com - Official website of University of Texas Athletics - Texas Longhorns Though he won't be a "cure-all" for the Longhorns, Myck Kabongo's return will undoubtedly help improve the struggles on offense. Currently the offense is built almost entirely on jump-shots that are often contested. Because of thi
