Texas hosts OU- tonight, 8pm on ESPN2

Recommended Posts

Like every other game this year it all comes down to whether we hit our shots or not.

If Texas is going to get anywhere near 7 or 8 wins in conference, this is the type of game they need to win. Having said that, I expect us to lose by single soffits.

OU should be very beatable in Austin.  That said, of their top three players, two are front court players, which means someone will have to help Sims defend and rebound. 

Their best player is Doolittle who runs about 6'7" and about 230.   If we go small ball, Febres will be assigned to battle Doolittle or a taller big man, and it won't be pretty.  Otherwise, Kai, Hepa, Hamm and/or Liddell will need to step up.  

I expect a low scoring, ugly game.  If we give up a lot of second chance points, can't get to the line more than 6 times, and don't hit at least 1/3 of our open looks it will be an ugly loss rather than an ugly win.

Looking for two cheap and good tickets if anyone has extry.

i would just buy the cheapest mezz tickets and then go grab some seats in/near section 36. gonna be a ton of good seats available tonight. sometimes if i think there's a chance that the lower bowl might get a little full then i'll sit in the mezz and just scope out where the open swaths if seats are and then move down around the U12 TO.

I have season tickets center mezz and haven't sat in those seats in 3 yrs including last 2 Kansas games (thanks Shaka?).  Yeah, I must be a glutton for punishment but they're cheap and I'm hanging on to see how the new arena is assigned.

Buy a $10 Texas t-shirt, get 2 free seats from someone, there will be plenty. Sit where you want. 

We know you will burn your shirt later.

Watch this game, or hit myself in the nuts with a hammer for two hours? Six of one, half a dozen of the other.

Hepa needs to get back to his man after he helps on the screen ... he’s been leaving Coleman against their center too much

OU won the tip, right? How was the arrow not in our favor? Did I miss something?

Sims won the tip

Manek looks like the blueprint for a lab-grown sooner.  Dumb vacuous look on his face and all.

We always want to launch bad threes. That's kind of our thing.
