“It sucks.” That was the statement Texas guard Danni Williams used to sum up Sunday night’s game after blowing a substantial third-quarter lead to an unranked Kansas State team. Fortunately for Aston and the Longhorns, they have another opportunity to redeem themselves in front of the hometown fans Saturday when they host Texas Tech.
After a lack of focus cost the Longhorns in their first matchup against the Cowboys in January, it was that infusion of energy from Mitrou-Long and Hamm that the Longhorns needed against the Cowboys in their 69-57 victory Saturday.
The time finally seemed to arrive. The inconsistencies were finally wiped away, rhythm was established on the offensive side of the ball and three consecutive conference wins looked to be in the works for the Texas Longhorns. How exactly did the Wildcats reverse all of Texas’ first half progress?
The Longhorns have finally hit the home stretch of their season. After going on the road to beat Kansas on Saturday, Texas will make one more stop to play the Oklahoma State Cowgirls on Tuesday for the conclusion of their mini road trip.
