Coming off by far their worst loss of the season, the Texas Longhorns find no rest for the frustrated as they travel to Stillwater to take on the surprisingly zesty OSU Cowboys. Led by the seemingly perpetually hot seated Travis Ford, OSU took care of KState last Saturday at home before losing a heartbreaker in Ames after the Cyclones blocked two late 3-pointers to hang on and win by two against the upstart Cowboys.
In a short turnaround after their hang-on win at Texas Tech, the Longhorns welcome #18 Oklahoma to Austin for a Big Monday showdown of two of the top teams in the conference. Lon Kruger’s Sooner squad took both games from the Horns last year and Texas will be eager to seek out a win against their rivals to the north. Oklahoma (10-3, 1-0) beat Baylor in Norman on Saturday afternoon 73-63.
After Texas’ best offensive game of the season against Lipscomb, the Longhorns welcome a dangerous Long Beach State (5-6) team to Austin this evening. The 49ers, coached by former Gonzaga and Minnesota head coach Dan Monson, have played a tough schedule thus far into the season including games at BYU, Xavier, UCLA, Washington and San Diego State...all losses.
Coming off what will likely be their longest layoff of the season (eight days), the Longhorns basketball team returns to action in Austin on Saturday evening against the Texas State Bobcats (5-1).
