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.
On Saturday morning, in the first close game of the year for the Texas, the Longhorns came through in the clutch, defeating No. 18 Kentucky on a walk-off RBI single from first baseman Kaitlyn Washington.
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?
After taking part in four games over just two days last weekend, the Longhorns had only one day of practice before they begin competition in the St. Pete/Clearwater Elite Invitation in Florida on Thursday.
