No. 8 Red Raiders too much for Texas in second half, 68-62

There was a return to the mean for both Texas and Texas Tech in the second half of Saturday’s game. After a first half where the Longhorns kept up with the No. 8 Red Raiders, Texas Tech played up to the level of a top ten team in the second half while Shaka Smart’s Longhorns were haunted by their typical miscues in a 68-62 loss.

What do we make of the win over WVU?

It was a bit closer than I assumed it would be, but Texas’ win over the Moutaineers has them sitting at 10-4 overall and 2-0 in the conference (the first 2-0 start in the Big 12 since J’Covan, Jordan, Tristan, Gary and Cory were manning the starting lineup for the Horns).
