For the second season in a row, the Texas Longhorns have lost in the Elite Eight. This time, the loss came against Stanford, the defending national champions and a team that Texas had already defeated once this season. So, what happened?
There are a lot of teams in this state, so we're not going to include every player in this discussion. Instead, I've narrowed it down to a handful of point guards and will look at the pros and cons for each one before coming to a decision.
It's another week of Stock Up, Stock Down here, and we're going to spend a little extra time than usual looking at one topic: the two games between Baylor and Texas.
Baylor lost to Kansas State this week, something that never happens. And when I say never, I'm only slightly exaggerating.
How has Vic Schaefer taken a young Longhorns team that overachieved at the end of last year and kept that momentum going while losing three key pieces?
We're inching closer to conference play — when it'll be a little easier to judge all of these teams — but got a past and future conference game on Sunday, as former Big 12 rivals and future SEC rivals Texas and Texas A&M faced off in Gary Blair's final game against the Horns.
Baylor and Texas both took to the national stage at the same time on Sunday afternoon, with both having a chance to make a big non-conference statement. And while both teams played well, the final results were losses for both Big 12 teams.
We're a week into basketball action now, with a lot of interesting things happening around the state, like Baylor not looking quite like Baylor and Texas A&M winning with a new-look frontcourt.
Let's do some small sample size overreactions to these first games. Every week, there will be a Stock Up, Stock Down column that surveys the landscape of Division I basketball around Texas. For this first one, we're looking at Tuesday night's basketball games.
