Burnt Orange takes on Big Blue Nation

Texas is playing with the big boys now – in more ways than one. The Horns will not only face the most storied program in college hoops Friday when it travels to No. 1 Kentucky, they will tipoff against a lineup that is longer than on most NBA teams. The Wildcats boasts seven players who stand at least six-foot-eight, including seven-footer Willie Cauley-Stein.

Hoops Preview: UT Arlington

After two of the most successful seasons in program history under head coach Scott Cross during the 11-12 and 12-13 years, UTA (3-3) took a step back during the 2013-14 season, going 15-17 overall and 9-9 in the Sun Belt. Making matters worse, the Mavericks lost their top two scorers in Reger Dowell and Brandon Edwards. This shouldn’t be a particularly close game.

Hook’Em Holmes

It was a lesson of how to lose a game. UConn came into the game with two guys who could hurt a defense scoring the basketball (Boatright and Hamilton)...they scored 37 of UConn’s 54 points. UConn needed to generate second chance opportunities and turnovers because of that lack of scoring depth...the Longhorns gave up 12 offensive rebounds at turned the ball over 13 times.
