Thamba/JTT/Vital/Mayer will never be more important then in this game. Texas has a ton of size and athleticism. Our bigs will need to bring their big boy pants to this one. Gonna be a grind.

Greg Brown is an interesting matchup, and Ramey shoots the 3 at a nice clip.

Should be a fun one! Sic 'em!

So Higgins is doing this Tech-OU game tonight, so I assume we don't get him tomorrow night?

Agree with this.

Did you see him having a conversation with me in the stands after one his horrible calls in the second half ?

Right behind Baylor basket. Second row

I'm assuming we have all our guys for the game.

Do we know about Texas players?

With the calendar turned to February has anyone started playing the March madness theme song!? I have it on full blast until the fiance has had enough of it

Biggest game in a season full of big games. If we can get the W in Austin, we can essentially run away and hide with the Big 12 title. No team would be within 3 games of us in the loss column.

Totally agree - Sims is a beast, and we need to play him physical - be nice to get a couple of quick fouls on him

Haha - they had a week to get ready for us!

Yes you have to be physical with him and Brown. Brown worries me the most out of their bigs. Kai Jones is similar to Sims

Horns fan here. I fully expect y'all to beat us tonight. Not only do I think you're simply better than us, but we haven't had our full squad together in 19 days.

Your guards are simply better than ours, and the team with the best guards usually wins the game. Though we have size and athleticism, we don't often play big down low. Sims has good games and bad games.

If we stay within ten I'll count it a positive, then see if we can get our act together by the conference tourney.

Noticed that too. Your bigs play small at times. Sims and Jones seem to be Jekyll or Hyde

What are you talking about? We have wins over Oklahoma, Texas Tech, Oklahoma State, Auburn, and Kansas, all of which are decent to very good teams. Texas will be the best team we face this season, but that does not mean we have played a bunch of nobodies up to this point.

I make it my alarm every March 1 through the Men's championship in April. Gets me so excited every morning.

Our Golden Retriever Ellie has her Baylor Jersey on. We're 6-0 when she has it on. Let's go Bears!

I have no idea how he drew both games - he must be highly rated by the B12, despite what we rightly think about him

And find a way to screw us over. Like Mitchell getting practically tackled on his last attempted drive to the basket. No call.

Baylor, OU, OSU, Tech, KSU, and WV fans can't stand him... only KU, ISU, and Texas fans seem to like him... I don't pay attention to TCU boards to know what they think.
You have enemies? Good. That means you’ve stood up for something, sometime in your life.
