The 79-74 upset over then-No. 12 Oklahoma could be labeled a turning point for the Longhorns’ season, but Texas must re-implement similar strategies to build on the win when Kansas State comes to town Wednesday night.
The Longhorn faithful had been lively since the early morning. They arrived in droves with creative signs, uproarious chants and unwavering support for Texas before its sellout matchup with No. 12 Oklahoma on Saturday evening.
ESPN’s College GameDay paid a visit, the Frank Erwin Center was sold out and the energy from the fans skyrocketed to a season-high during the Texas-Oklahoma game on Saturday evening. Why? The Longhorns’ Mo Bamba and the Sooners’ Trae Young were in the building.
Kansas was the better team in the first half of its game against Texas on Jan. 13. Shots were falling with ease for the Jayhawks as they shocked the then-No. 7 Longhorns by going into halftime with a 31-29 lead.
