Texas will look to continue their recent strong play at home when the Iowa State Cyclones come to Austin just three days after knocking off the Jayhawks in Lawrence, KS. The Texas-ISU game preview.
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.
Shaka Smart met with the media on Monday to talk about Jarrett Allen’s future, the team’s play recently, what the team needs to do in the last stretch of conference play, closing out games, Eric Davis’ improvement, and postseason aspirations.
We’re less than two days from National Signing Day 2017. And like most, we’re ready to wrap this class up and move on to 2018. So what’s left in a class currently holding steady at 15 members? Four, by our calculations. We talk predictions for the C/O 2017, 1-on-1 with 5-star BJ Foster, breaking down 2018 in-state DBs, and finish with your basketball fix. It’s the Inside Scoop, of course.
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?
Following Texas’ last second victory over Oklahoma, Shaka Smart met with the media to go over the team’s consistency, the roles of Jarrett Allen and Shaq Cleare, and preview the Big 12/SEC Challenge match up against Georgia.
