TCU rode a red hot last 10 minutes to a win that was far less comfortable than the final score appears to complete the season sweep over the Longhorns in Fort Worth.
Rebounding and three point shooting being the main culprits of error for Texas, the Horned Frogs took advantage of the opportunities Texas gave them as they pulled away late.
Texas will look for its third win in four games Saturday as they seek revenge for an earlier season loss against the Horned Frogs, this time on the road. Here’s our Game Preview.
Shaka’s offensive system has come under fire this year, and for understandable reason. The shooting has been poor. The execution has been poorer. The free throw shooting has been on par with even Rick’s worst coaching seasons.
In short, it hasn’t been all that fun to watch.
It was what we thought it would be. Texas has more talent but are younger and more prone to poor decision making. Texas Tech is solid and will play with tremendous poise and patience, but they don’t have much for gamechangers on their roster.
And, in a game of talent versus experience, the talent won…just barely.
One step forward; two steps back?
That’s what today felt like for a Longhorn team that looked uncomfortable and tentative the entire game as they lost at Georgia, sacking their chance at a winning streak and letting a mediocre Bulldog team off the hook.
Shaka Smart and the Longhorns will look to double down on their last second win over Oklahoma when they travel to Georgia to take on the Bulldogs for their part of the Big 12/SEC Challenge Saturday afternoon. Coach Fox and the Georgia men are coming off a blowout home loss where Fox was ejected and Alabama shot the lights out of the gym. So, will Texas serve as its cathartic punching bag or can the Longhorns make it an honest to goodness winning streak?
The progress has been there. Now it’s time for some wins. Because if they don’t come now…
Six turnover in the first four and a half minutes saw Kansas run out to a 19-5 lead and Texas fans everywhere cursed Shaka Smart, turned off their television and threw their remotes at the nearest cushion/pillow/hamper/Aggie.
The Texas Longhorns, owners of a four game losing streak, will attempt to do the impossible as they head to Allen Fieldhouse to take on the #2 Jayhawks in Lawrence, KS. KU (winners of 17 straight) on the other hand, has once again put itself in the driver’s seat for yet another Big 12 title.
AUSTIN — Shaka Smart’s four-year-long recruitment of blue chip point guard Matt Coleman (Oak Hill Academy) has finally paid off as Coleman committed to the Longhorns on Monday night during the ESPN telecast of Oak Hill’s game against Nathan Hale.
