Game thread: Texas Longhorns

Join the party as Tech looks to defeat the highly ranked Longhorns!

Michael C. Johnson-USA TODAY Sports

It is finally time to throw-down in Austin! Horns down, Guns up, let’s go!

Tip-Off: 8:00 pm CT

Texas Tech: 10-3

Texas: 10-1

Arena: Frank Erwin Center (Austin, Texas)

Broadcast: ESPN2

Betting line: Tech (+2)

Home players to watch: Andrew Jones

Jones is the comeback story of the year. Battling back from cancer to become the guy at Texas is an incredible story. He is averaging a smooth 13.4 pts/g and 2.4 assists which compliments Texas’ other great guards.

Away players to watch: Kevin McCullar

McCullar is coming off what is hopefully the first of many double-doubles. More impressive than his scoring and rebounds is his defense. He completely neutralizes anyone he guards, and with Texas having so many talented ball-handlers taking that lights-out defense will be even more important.
