    Led by 12 in the first half. Now trailing 57-54 with a little over three minutes to play.

    Where have I seen this goddamned story before?

    We are 3 for 20 from the field in second half. 3 for f*cking 20??? How is that even humanly possible? JFC I haven't seen shooting this bad since my daughter's 7th grade team.

    How do you recruit this many guys with this must talent that can't shoot the ball? I have never seen this before. Is defense that great that we ignore whether a guy can shoot?

    It's just unreal. Without some unusually decent FT shooting (by Texas standards), the Hogs would have run us off the floor in the second half.

    I'll be damned. Texas wins in OT, 73-71. Always nice to beat the Hogs.

    That said, .313 FG% and .323 3PT% do not give me a lot of confidence for the rest of the season. For the third year in a row, it appears this team cannot shoot for sh*t. At least FT% wasn't sub-70% like it usually is, but 21 for 30 (exactly .700) still sucks by decent programs' standards.

    After football season ends, can we just skip basketball and get right to Longhorn baseball?

    At least we won. But, my main disappointment these first 2 games is Jericho Sims. He does an average job, but, I was hoping this year would be the year he would "bring it". I keep hearing how is a great athlete. He's a good guy by all accounts, but, he just hasn't shown the testosterone to play down low. I believe that is all we are missing and Shaka should go with someone else and let Sims be the sub until he can play every play "mean". If you watch him, he walks around slow, moping, lazy or however you can describe that body language. I thought he would have outgrown that from last year. So far, I am wrong. Luckily, we have some younger guys that seem hungrier.

    You guys, don't be surprised. This team is majority of projects but good projects. Sims is a project. It's going to take time. Need good guard play but still in need of a 3 shooter. Apparently We havent had success finding those. Hopefully, we see them get better and gel. We won't be great but we will be good enough to make the tourney

    Not sure if serious, or being sarcastic because of Duke hype. You can't tell anything from one game. Maybe Kentucky isn't all that good. They did struggle with a nobody last night. Meanwhile, North Carolina, who will directly have something to say about the Duke hype, beat a nobody by 50. Tap those brakes.
