Blown 12 point lead. now down 1 with 7 to go at OU. No points in over 5 minutes. Any confidence that Shaka can come up with something to salvage this game?

we did win. other than a free throw missed in crunch time that felt like groundhog day, and a possession where matt coleman dribbledribbledribbled and shot a midrange at the shot clock buzzer (which, thankfully, he made, covering up the horrible-ness of the possession), it was a good win against a good team in a rivalry game. could question allowing a quick layup late, but that stuff happens to everybody. and the announcers questioned getting th ball to brown at the end, being a freshman that shoots about 70%, but the young man didn't look rattled, and sometimes a coach knows which player on his team won't melt in that situation. that's more important than ft% in those spots. so good job, men!

I’ll be interested to see how the committee evaluates Texas. If they take care of TCU tomorrow, and win at least a game in the big 12 tournament I think they have a really strong case for a 2 seed. If the committee considers that the OU loss was without 3 starters and a key bench player plus the HC(still only lost by 2) and the Baylor blowout came after not being able to practice in 3 weeks. Texas really has put together a solid resume in tough circumstances.

Glad we could pay the bastards back for the one we dropped when we were without Sims, Ramey, and Cunningham. Always worth firing up the DVR to see a win over OU.
How clutch is Matt Coleman? Doesn’t score all night but when the game was on the line he drills it. Greg Brown too. Not the greatest FT shooter in the world goes to the line and cans 2 to ice the game.

Texas doesn’t deserve a 2-seed if they only win one game in the tourney. They would be appropriately ranked between 4-6. I could see them getting a 2 seed if they win out

They probably would be between 4-6 if not for the 3 week pause. They were absolutely rolling before that. Took them a few weeks to get back there. They are close now. Not quite there yet

The talent is there for a top 2 seed. The holdback is the coaching staff. The tournament may play into their hands - when teams are not familiar with each other and a coach has a short time period to game plan.

Going by Joe lunardi’s ESPN projection. Texas will probably be a 3 seed after today. FSU lost to a bad ND team, and Villanova losing their first game without Gillespie pretty badly

Texas 30 TCU25 at the 2:34 mark of the 1st half. I just saw the score on ticker. It is being on televised on B12ESPN. I had no idea there was a Big12ESPN.

While the Big 10 gets doubleheader’s on ESPN every night plus their own network, we get PPV. Even with LHN. How does Blowsby have a job???

It will be interesting to see if the big 12 survives after the end of the TV deal in a couple years. Feels like one of the pac 12 or the big 12 is nearing an end

It’s a win. 76-64. On to the conference tournament.

We swept Kansas and still tied with them in conference, if we could have the ou game back with our coach out and the 19 point come back by west Virginia. Baylor still would of won the conference but we would of came in second.

Yeah that OU game shouldn’t of been played. It took Texas 3-4 weeks to get back going after basically halting for a month. Looks like they are pretty close to back though

Villanova just lost to Georgetown. That’s two bad losses in a row without Gillaespie. No way they can be a two seed. If Texas gets to the championship game they may have a case to slide in to that two spot

We need to pass the ball around more. We dribble, dribble, dribble, then turn it over. Hopefully, Febres can get the 3s going.

I wouldn’t mind Shaka picking up a tech getting after the refs. Every time we play tech they are allowed to straight up mug us. We even breath on them it’s a foul

Jase Febres is going to win us a tournament game by coming off the bench and hitting a couple big 3’s

Hard fought win,. Febres made the difference. I liked what Simms showed. Cunningham with a huge takeaway at the end.

It should be a great break. Then again, it gives 48 hours for Shaka to come up with a game plan. Advantage canceled.
