Texas freshman point guard Myck Kabongo has decided to return for his sophomore season seeking a chance at a deep tourney run.
Texas' J'Covan Brown ignited a comeback run with a pair of threes, bracketed around one by Sheldon McClellan, as the Longhorns went on a 17-6 run late to grab the 72-64 comeback win over Oklahoma at the Frank Erwin Center Wednesday night.
Desperation can make for strange bedfellows. That said, the pillow talk between Texas' Rick Barnes and Oklahoma's Lon Kruger is about just who is more desperate.
Chris Whaley moved from running back to defensive end and now defensive tackle. With his quickness, the 285-pounder is poised to be a force this spring.
For the freshman-laden Longhorns to make the NCAA tournament, the Big 12 math looks simple.
Texas and J'Covan Brown needed help. When Sheldon McClellan stepped up with 23 points against UT-Arlington, Brown and the Longhorns found another scoring threat.
