Texas basketball returned to the hardcourt Wednesday for the first time since being pulled off the floor of the 2020 Big 12 Tournament. Twelve players who made that truncated trip to Kansas City returned for the 2020-21 season, beginning their 27-game campaign with a 91-55 win over UT-Rio Grande Valley.
Some things remain normal in Texas' capital city. Once again, Texas head coach Shaka Smart’s job status is a hot topic of discussion among Longhorn fans. Once again, UT men’s basketball supporters will be treated to one year of a NBA Draft lottery pick after blue-chip forward Greg Brown III’s decision to play at Texas.
What is the staff teaching in its online coaching clinics? Where do things stand with Texas for a corner recently released from his LOI from a Big 12 school? What's the latest info on Greg Brown III's decision day? All in the Humidor.
In a normal timeline we’d be four days away from the start of spring ball and writing a robust team portion. Those of you still in your sleepwear, or being out-numbered by your kids who are home from school, know quite well, we’re not in our normal timeline.
AUSTIN -- The Longhorns Basketball team doesn't have to look far for one of the nation's best prospects. He's already down the street. We go 1-on-1 with one of the nation's best high school basketball players. And destroying the Central Texas region as a do-everything sophomore.
AUSTIN -- The Vandegrift Vipers are in just their second season as an UIL 6A athletic program after being in 5A for the rest of their existence.
