After being criticized by head coach Karen Aston for sloppy play and a lack of mental toughness, the Longhorns will make the trek to the Lubbock to not only get another Big 12 win, but to correct their play from Wednesday night.
Big 12 road games have been anything but a cakewalk for Texas this year. But as under 30 seconds remained in Schollmaier Arena, the Longhorns possessed the ball with an opportunity to complete a double-digit, second-half comeback and force overtime.
The eighth-ranked Longhorn men’s tennis team opened the year up at home with a dominating 6–1 victory over SMU — its 18th-straight win over the in-state rival Mustangs — and moved to 2–0 on the season.
Typical college basketball benches feature about 10 players, a head coach, several assistants and trainers. Some colleges take their benches to the next level with coordinated bench mob celebrations. And then there’s Texas, who added Academy Award-winning actor Matthew McConaughey to the end of the bench to fuel the Longhorns to a 75-72 win over Oklahoma on Saturday.
